Knot releases debut LP on Exploding in Sound on August 28

Brooklyn's Knots raised from the ashes of Boston's Krill, and offer a tense mix of nervy post-punk instrumentation and '90s slacker vocals that perfectly blend two genres that have stood the test of time in the constantly evolving sea of rock'n'roll waves. The single Knot, streaming, is included in their debut, self titled LP out on August 28 on Exploding in Sound.
