Trash Knife

Weekend Warrior, May 10 - 12

Spring is in full bloom, and that means a day of music and BBQing is in order. This Saturday, the Haus of Yarga will be hosting its BBYQ (where vegan options will be available as well). Fourteen acts are slated to appear at the annual event that will be starting in the early afternoon. The brutal, blitzing punk of Dialer will roar and menacingly rip, integrating synth & saxophone. Trash Knife will also immediately jump into high gear, sprinting in a tenaciously catchy, shredding circumstance. Unleashing a subdued slacker vibe that can ramp up in a moment’s notice, while escalating into heavier, fuzz-forward tones, the trio of Apt A weaves between genres as internalized monologues are released to the outside world. John Galm, a.k.a. Bad Heaven LTD, will deliver some mesmerizing folk that wraps you in its spellbinding words as the instruments comfortably warp around you. And to add yet another layer of intrigue, Shamir is also listed as a special guest. – Michael Colavita

New Trash Knife LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Suicide Bong Tapes recently issued So Far…, the new release from punk outfit Trash Knife. An unrelenting energy races ahead in an ongoing stream of consciousness commentary. Bursts of unfiltered honesty rumble past and sweep you up in their contagious, rambunctious fits and starts. Before heading out on a European tour, you can catch the band’s sendoff on Sunday, September 9 at The Buffalo, supported by Kids, Los Gueys, and Episode.

New Trash Knife Split EP Available for Streaming

It may not technically be released, but you can still listen to the new Trash Knife/Dumb Vision split. Attacking from all directions, Trash Knife engulfs in a torrent of nonstop, blazing riffs and bombarding rhythms that are unforgiving and melodic. It's easy to get caught up in that all-in-from-the-jump point of view, which the band shares with Wisconsin’s Dumb Vision. The six-song selection is slated for release via Kitschy Spirit Records at a TBD date. Catch Trash Knife as part of Philly Still Fucking Shreds 2018, on Sunday, June 24 at Century Bar!

New Track: "Inna Funk" - Trash Knife

Later this year, hardcore quintet Trash Knife will be dropping a split 7” with Dumb Vision, via Wisconsin label Kitschy Manitou Records. Building from a rockin', unified base, “Inna Funk” hits into next gear when the song's defiant vocals kick in. That impending, unfiltered urgency shifts the tone with a swift shot of adrenaline. The switch is flipped, and there’s no looking back.

New Trash Knife EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Local imprint FDH Records recently issued the self-titled EP from hardcore quintet Trash Knife. Resonating with a snarly sense of immediacy, these songs continuously push the pace, while demonstrating a tacky-tongue-twisting lyricism. Aggressively grabbing the reins in a firsthand, contemporary commentary, the album drives its points home quickly. Directly hammering to the point, it's both fun, and gone in a flash.
