Amanda Hernandez had the opportunity to talk with Red Bull Records, Five Knives at the 2013 Vans Warped Tour at the Pomona Fairplex in Pomona, CA.
Five Knives frenetic live show is far from pressing play on a computer. Front woman Anna Worstell bounds around the stage like a woman possessed wrapping herself in her mic chord and jumping from the kick drum and speakers. Electronic elements are recreated live by Zach Hall and Nathan Barlowe, who also handles guitar duties. All the while the beat is held down through the wizard-like drumming of Shane Wise.
This local frenzy led to festival appearances and supporting slots with Smashing Pumpkins and Die Antwoord. After signing with Red Bull Records, they are finally set to release the highly anticipated 5 song EP, “The Rising.”
Currently in the studio working on tracks for their forthcoming full-length debut, the band will hit the road this summer on Warped Tour. Audiences nationwide will get the opportunity to experience what is arguably Nashville’s best kept secret. Technology strikes again.
