Days before Knife Party were to set drop their debut studio album Abandon Ship!, they delayed the release to make sure it was perfect. Well now we get the first sample of this new material they have kept us patiently waiting for. Rob Swire just uploaded a huge close to 2 minute preview of KP new song "Party 404", packing a different flavor than the rest. While it still has the signature anthem feel like other KP songs, this one carries out a glitchy 8-bit influence worked into the epic buildup into fierce drop. This preview will have to keep you happy until we get the full album on it's new release date of November 10th. Listen below and enjoy!

The time for Dillon Francis has finally arrived. We posted the stream to his debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule earlier this week and now we are happy to bring you the new music video for "When We Were Young" ft. Sultan, Ned Shepard and The Chaing Gang Of 1974. The video takes our cast of characters (Dillon, Sultan & Ned Shepard, and The Chain Gang of 1974 as the creepy clown) and throws them back in time to a very wild childhood birthday party. This music video has it all from party favors, games and cake, to creepy clowns, a bouncy house, and a rock concert played out on fisher price instruments. Only something so silly and straight up entertaining could come from the mind of the guy responsible for Hansel and not giving a Fuck or a Shit. You can stream the video below and pre-order the album here. Enjoy!

The colossal duo of Kill the Noise and Feed Me recently teased the followup to their 2012 collaboration "Thumbs Up (For Rock N’ Roll)". Their latest song “Far Away” might be one of both artists' biggest to date as we first previewed last week.
The track is powered by a captivating chorus sung by a children's choir, setting the tone for both producers to lay down some unbelievably intricate melodies. The song's upbeat energy is highlighted by pulsating drops sprinkled throughout. The track encompasses both collaborators' styles perfectly while still delivering something completely new and unexpected.
There is a full animated music video to help explode the single which is set to premiere on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim this Saturday Oct 25th. Listen below, watch out for the video tonight, and make sure to pick up your copy through Beatport as it is available through both Kill the Noise and Feed Me’s labels Slowroast and Sotto Voce respectively. Enjoy!
