The Knife have announced a set of European dates for Spring 2013, calling at The Roundhouse in London on 8 May.
The shows are presented with Sorkklubben, a temporary collective performing diverse art forms.
At the tail end of 2012, The Knife announced a new album Shaking The Habitual, to be released on 8 April 2013 via Brille. This is their first album in seven years, since Silent Shout in 2006. The influential Swedish brother and sister duo posted a teaser on their website trailing some new music in December, watch it here: www.theknife.net
Shaking The Habitual promises to be unlike anything else around and finds the band in a ruminative and expansive mood; “Started to improvise, to find something less predictable, to let go of what we already knew about music, explore what we didn't, without requiring complete answers”.
The album features vocal contributions from Emily Royston and Shannon Funchess.
