Knalpot took a two year sabbatical to develop a completely new set. The album “Dierendag” (release on october 3rd through SHHPUMA/Clean Feed) marks a new beginning and shows that the band surpassed itself with an even more massive and unique sounddesign and singular approach: Drone-zone walls fluently morph into a pop song, big-time distorted drums mingle with sweet Bach-like guitar, otherworldly blown guitars are layered with processed drums and synths. The new tracks are more danceable while Knalpot trademarks like vivid energy, stumblegrooves and their omnipresent sense of joy, freshness and freedom remain.
