Despite having just four shows to their credit, it hasn’t taken Knaaves very long to make a name for themselves in Milwaukee. The metal-leaning hardcore outfit boasts former Enabler bassist Amanda Daniels and members of Amora Savant in its lineup. Since forming last April, the band has received favorable press in metal circles, opened for Eyehategod, and released a two-song EP called January.
Knaaves played the EP’s title track during a recent performance at Midwest Meltdown 2018 in Iowa City. Footage shot by Mario Benitez, Brad Urban, and Karl Hammer at the show was cut together for the band’s just-released “January” lyric video. Get a taste of the young band’s intricate, heavy style before Knaaves play at Frank’s Power Plant in support of Dominican hardcore band La Armada on Sunday, April 15.
