RELEASE DATE: April 15th, 2016

Suffocating surrounded by a filthy poisonous haze. Drowning at the bottom of an icy lake with a brick tied to your ankle. Held hostage with a gun to your head. Bloody Knives latest record I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This exists in a world of forgotten places, the dark corners of empty cities, decaying buildings filled with vacant people, in the world of the lost and broken.

The album nods to the nihilistic abandon of the Birthday Party, the passionate desperation of The Sound, the dense filth of Merzbow, the electric disquiet of Christian Death, and the pummeling beauty of My Bloody Valentine. There are moments of intense beauty, of atmospheric filth, icy vocals, nasty synths, buzzing noise, pummeling drums and driving bass creating a feeling of moving at breakneck speed while standing still, of being comfortable lost in the chaos.

Adding Jack Ohara Harris (guitar), Ritchard Napierkowski (synth), and Martin McCreadie (synth) to the band’s already explosive live show has turned it into a chaotic decibel heavy experience, creating an intense ethereal atmosphere dependent less on pure volume and more on sonic density.

Recorded by Preston Maddox and Ian Rundell (Dead Space, Ghetto Ghouls, Xetas), then meticulously mixed and mastered by Adam Stilson (New Canyons, Airiel, The March Violets), the album is exactly as the band envisioned their sound being represented in a record, with fidelity unmatched by its predecessors.

Ambient, cryptic, unhinged, and ethereal, I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This is bold move forward for a genre bending band that already escapes definition.
