Crash of Rhinos' "Knots" Release Day!

Today marks the official release of Crash of Rhinos' long awaited and ambitious new full-length album, Knots. This record's incredible and I'm not just paying lip service here, you guys.

image

Pitchfork recently gave the album an 8.1 score stating:

The songs on Knots unfold like brilliant football plays, utilizing synchronization, deception, quick cuts, speed and brawn, the individual players given omni-directional free reign for the larger purpose of forward momentum. ... You get the sense that Knots could be a standard in its current genre, but the exploratory second half suggests Crash of Rhinos are working towards transcending it. ... While indie rock still primarily traffics in timid sounds and mannered emotions, Crash of Rhinos dare to care too much on Knots and their risk is our reward.

If you're interested, you can pick it up on 2xLP gatefold vinyl at the Topshelf storeFor those of you who've never listened to Crash of Rhinos before, give 'em a whirl here.

Thanks, everyone!

Crash of Rhinos // Topshelf Records

Ever since first hearing Distal in 2011 we've been hooked on Crash of Rhinos. The Derby, UK natives have written a record — entitled Knots — that is exactly what I want to listen to. So when we were asked to get involved with releasing it, it was kind of a no-brainer. Sonically, it fits perfectly with our catalog and if you're typically a fan of records we put out, you're gonna like this.

We'll be pairing up with Big Scary Monsters in the UK and To Lose La Track in Italy to bring this to y'all. Expect a late summer release. We'll have pre-order details and an exact release date soon! 

Have a listen to a new song, "Opener", from their forthcoming full length right below and give 'em a follow on Twitter and Facebook.
