"ONE OF THE RECORDS OF THE YEAR" ZANE LOWE -- BBC RADIO 1
 "THIS RELEASE SETS THE DUO ON A PATH TO GREATNESS" -- DJ MAG
"ALBUM = MIND BLOWN!" -- UKF

Knife Party's eagerly anticipated debut album "Abandon Ship" covers just about every sub-genre of dance music there is, but as you'd expect always with a Knife Party twist (hard to pigeonhole) but if you imagine everything from seizure music to spooky roller disco you're getting there. Knife Party did not rely on their previously smashes, 'Internet Friends,' 'Bonfire' and 'LRAD' to make up the track-listing, but instead gave themselves the insurmountable task of coming up with twelve original tracks in between a busy touring schedule -- including headlining sets at the notorious HARD Day of the Dead festival in Los Angeles, and PACHA's Pier of Fear in New York this weekend -- which is quite a feat when you take into account the perfectionist traits of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen.

"Abandon Ship" arrives on November 24th via Earstorm/Big Beat -- but before then, fans will see and hear the remaining album tracks unveiled in a number of ways throughout November. Firstly a selection of tracks will be unveiled as part of Zane Lowe's Album Of The Week feature on November 10th, this will be accompanied by an exclusive interview with the usually elusive Rob Swire. On November 17th, a full week prior to the official release, fans will for the first time be able to hear the album in full on Thump (www.thump.vice.com). Then on the eve of the album's release on November 23rd, Knife Party will be hosting an album launch party, location TBC, but the point is everyone's invited as it will be broadcast live to the world on Mixify (www.mixify.com), a cutting edge on-line platform for DJs and fans alike, which includes a live chat feature that the guys will be using throughout the night to interact with their fans. As well as all the above Knife Party will be dropping a select number of exclusive studio mixes throughout the month for the likes of Triple J and Sirius XM.

Be sure to catch Knife Party live in Orlando at Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend.
