Knights Q&A

Your name: 
Michael Storey.

Where are you from? 
York, UK.

Name of band:
Knights.

Who else is in your band? 
James Denham, Kevin Kendall, Joe Drury.

How would you describe yourselves? 
Well the newer stuff's a lot more chaotic and mental. Just think about a mental patient having broken free of their white jacket and running riot, well that, amplified! 

Who are your main influences musically? 
Converge, The Chariot, Johnny Truant, Entombed.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
At least one tour round the world. To do Sundwave Festival, Australia would be insane too! Probably more a personal goal that one.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Playing Make A Scene festival, Middlesbrough - there were loads of great bands on including Hacktivist, Heights, Odessa and the atmosphere was great. Best local show we've played and we got a great reception from the audience too.  

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Probably the first show we played - we basically played one song to a fruit machine in a badly promoted gig in Sunderland, then the PA blew up. And it was snowing. 

If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Naturally I'd pick a newer one, but they're not for public listening yet so I'll say Mirrors from our debut album Fables. It's quick, aggressive but has melodic elements in which sit nicely in the song. 

Where can we listen to it?
You can download the whole album for FREE here: http://knightsbanduk.bandcamp.com


Where can we find out more about your music?
You can check our Facebook at www.facebook.com/knightsuk
But we're reknowned for our Twitter banter so best check that too, 4,400 + followers would agree www.twitter.com/knightsuk

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?
We're playing with Marmozets at The Duchess, York on 26th Sept - come down and buy an advance ticket from us £5! Bargain. http://knightsuk.bigcartel.com
