The explosive bass oriented duo known as Knife Party have kept themselves busy in the studio over the last few months working on a new album and they recently revealed some exciting details on the upcoming release via Twitter. The full lenght debut artist album will be titled Abandon Ship and will feature 12 tracks with 9 of them already complete and scheduled for the album, 5 in the "maybe, maybe not" pile and another 5 in the early stages of creation. If any of these tracks are close the the madness contained on Knife Party's most recent Haunted House EP, we can surely expect a major contender in the highly anticipated electronic music albums whenever they decide to unleash the fury. We hope to at least here some of new album this coming weekend when we attend the 3rd annual Spring Awakening Music Festival in Chicago, IL and if so, expect details to be shared on the site! Until then… Enjoy
Album update: 9 of 12 tracks confirmed, 5 in the "maybe" pile, 5 in the "ideas" stage. 2 weeks til mastering.

…..No Daft Punk. The lineup just got released for the most buzzed about festival in the country, Coachella Music & Art Festival. The legendary festival which takes place in the sunny Indigo Valley, California every year expanded to two weekends last year to accommodate the incredibly high demand. The 2013 festival will be taking place over April 12th – 14th and April 19th – 21st.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, January 29th at 10am PST.
So there is no Daft Punk.. yet again. I guess we were silly for letting our hopes get up once again. But there is a reunion from Wu-Tang Clan, which is more then dope. Also confirmed is the much speculated reunion of Ben Gibbard electronic project The Postal Service. Of course Red Hot Chili Peppers will be incredible, but didn’t they just play every festival last year? Phoenix is an incredible band, so that’s awesome to see them headline. All in all for Coachella standards I would say the headliners are a tad weak, and they have definitely shifted more towards live acts again. Make sure to read the small text because there defintely is a the stacked lineup of everyone underneath the headliners.
In the electronic spectrum we have Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Knife Party, Benny Benassi, TNGHT, Eric Prydz, Dog Blood (Skrillex + Boys Boize), Major Lazer, Disclosure, Hardwell, Kill the Noise, Wolfgang Gartner, Nicky Romero, Excision and that’s just a handful.
In the hip-hop world, besides Wu-Tang Clan we have 2 Chainz, Danny Brown, Jurassic 5, Pusha T, and Earl Sweatshirt.
What is everyone’s thoughts?
Knife Party decided to play a spur of the moment online set through TurtableFM in the #AnonFM room, and dropped some unreleased tracks, a very respectable and cool thing for such a commercially successful group. One their unreleased tracks that stood out was “Power Glove” which sounded like your standard Knife Party full on electro banger. This might be the next “Internet Friends” for the UK / AUS duo from the cinematic intro to the insane drop. We are led to believe that this is the first single that off the upcoming third Knife Party EP that got announced back in August. Enjoy the preview until we get details on the release of the full version. Also don’t miss their previous Clever Title Deadmau5 Was Use: Mix and the Rage Valley EP. Turn this up, enjoy!
UPDATE: Someone else who was caught the epic live set managed to get their hands on a full length version of the preview. Turn it up, and enjoy the full version!
