The Long Knives feature Duke Destiny’s rare vocals and searing work on the 12-String electric. Duke is one of the few performers in the world who uses the 12-String exclusively, packing together tight riffs and blaring leads that have often been compared to the work of such Indie guitar heroes Bob Mould and J. Mascis. Duke’s vocals have drawn comparisons to Lyle Lovett, and Jeffrey Lee Pierce. Entwined with Drummer SnK's speedy, ruthless, hypnotic rhythms, pounding the skins like the demon child of Grant Hart and Sam Henry, The Long Knives have a sound that is all it's own. Unique, intense, heavy, melodic accompanied with provocative lyrics touching on many topics.
The band is known for their loud and intense live shows, and is catching on more and more to ears that discover it. The Long Knives were also named one of the Bands To Watch in 2014 from Rolling Stone Online, drawing comparisons to early Sonic Youth, The Deftones, Joy Division, Jesus and Mary Chain and many others.
