End Up at Another Know End Show Saturday

The Know End in Sight Series has featured some pretty good shows so far, and Saturday's will definitely be one of the best ways to both end this shitty year on and see off the Know from its northeast Alberta home.

We never miss a chance to see to heavy hitters Danava, who still manage to hold such a special place in our hearts even without having released any new material in a long time. Party rockers Mean Jeans will hopefully play almost all of this year's Tight New Dimension which, of course, has had us in a whole other dimension of rowdy punkness since April.

With the coolness of Andy Place and the Coolheads and NYC's Dirty Fences touring through to round out the bill, there's no doubt shit won't get crazy. 

Tickets are only $12, so it'd be smart to get there early and snag one before the night sells out.

New Track: "The Bar Is Low" - Pissed Jeans

It's been a moment since we've gotten any new music from beloved noise-punks Pissed Jeans, since 2013's Honeys, in fact. Well, we are happy to learn that they just announced plans for the release of a new album, titled Why Love Now, to come out in the new year. The LP was co-produced by no-wave legend Lydia Lunch and Philly metalhead Arthur Rizk, and is scheduled for release on February 27, 2017 via Sub Pop. The band also shared the record's lead single "The Bar Is Low," which is about "how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead. It seems like every guy is getting outed, across every board of entertainment and politics and music." Unfortunately, it's bitterly appropriate for these trying times.


Weekend Warrior, November 11 - 13

The assemblage of Mike McGinnis, Jon DeHart, and Dan Smith, otherwise known as Fight Amp, announced a few months back that they are going on an indefinite hiatus. So tonight’s show at Kung Fu Necktie may represent the trio’s final Philly performance. One thing is certain; the band will be bringing their focused brand of heaviness - the type that oozes with deep, churning, rhythmic discontent. That purposeful, pulsating, noisy instrumentation quakes, teaming with an ominous vocal snarl that brews a strong batch of sludge-rock. The unfiltered, raucous rattling of post-hardcore quartet Legendary Divorce ushers in an air of intensity to open the proceedings. Fellow Reptilian Records brethren and Baltimore-based noise-rock trio Multicult bridge the gap. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 7pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by Steve Perrong) - Michael Colavita

New Drones for Queens Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

We're sure that there are still so many emotions welling up inside you right now. Let loose with the unrelenting, furious blasts from grindcore trio Drones for Queens. That raw explosive release, threaded with shredding, heart-racing instrumentation, is captured in their latest album Unwavering Servant. Press play, and unhinge that bottled up aggression.



Dearly Beloved is one of the top bands to come out of Toronto in recent years. They seem to spend a lot of time over in Europe but they have dropped some wildly intense tunes over the years. Main man Rob Higgins sings and absolutely shreds the bass at the same time. They recently released a video for the brand new track "I Tried To Leave". It's a straight up ripper that would make Josh Homme nod his head with approval. The connection is aleady there as Dearly Beloved have worked with Homme collaborators Chris Goss and Dave Catching in the past. They have had tunes in the past that stretch their creativity more than on this tune but crank this bad boy up and honestly...just giver... - Kris Gies
