Knife Party have been teasing the release of their debut studio album Abandon Ship! over the past few months leaking tracks like "Begin Again" and "Boss Mode", while also pushing back the entire release of the project to work on perfecting it. Well now, a few weeks ahead of the newly scheduled release date of November 24th, the duo have decided to drop the entire project on us due to an early iTunes leak, and no one is complaining. The album brings in the festival-geared style the duo helped carve with their past releases while also incorporating more melodic influences from their Pendulum past. Songs like "EDM Trend Machine" standout on the release while still sounding great, it manages to poke fun at big room house and incorporate new trending styles like future house / deep house. You can now listen to the entire project below on top of being able to pick up a copy through iTunes which is available through their own label Earstorm Records.

Days before Knife Party were to set drop their debut studio album Abandon Ship!, they delayed the release to make sure it was perfect. Yesterday, we got the first sample of the new material they have kept us patiently waiting for. Rob Swire has uploaded a huge, close to 2 minute, preview of KP's new song "Party 404". Packing a different flavor than the rest, while still holding to the signature anthem-feel of other KP songs, "404" carries a glitchy 8-bit influence worked in with an epic buildup into a 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!
Knife Party – 404 (Teaser)
As prominent bass assassins Knife Party continue to tease their forthcoming debut studio album Abandon Ship, the duo continue to let loose yet another single following up "Begin Again" and "Resistance".
The talented duo who have become electro house icons, yet for this new single "Boss Mode" has them stepping outside of what you would expect and has them dabbling with trap styles. The song packs an enticing chime build which is turned up by the addition of a sleazy synth pattern and perfectly placed wonky bass drops for a change of pace that works so well. It's very exciting to see the guys experiment in some new territory with this album. Stream the new single below and grab Abandon Ship out on October 27th! Enjoy

A new song by Aussie duo Knife Party "Begin Again" has just surfaced being uploaded by an unknown Soundcloud account. We got a taste of their upcoming EP a few weeks back with the song "Resistance" which was a bass heavy electro festival banger following in the style we have grown to expect from Knife Party.
Well today after listening to "Begin Again" we hear a completely new side of Knife Party, bringing in some influences of their other project Pendelum as far as more focused on melodies then the drop, which this song doesn't really have. We also hear Rob Swire of Knife Party / Pendelum lay down some of his own vocals, which makes us remember when he did the same thing for deadmau5's iconic "Ghosts N Stuff".
Listen below to the preview and we will keep you posted on details as they roll in. What are your thoughts on the change of pace from Knife Party? Enjoy.
