BENT KNEE – new studio album, ‘You Know What They Mean’, announced; video for ‘Hold Me In’ launched


BENT KNEE announce new studio album ‘You Know What They Mean‘; launch video for ‘Hold Me In‘.

Boston-based art-rock band Bent Knee are pleased to announce their fifth full-length studio album ‘You Know What They Mean‘, out 11th October 2019, and have also launched a brand new video for their latest single ‘Hold Me In‘, directed by Kelsey Hunter Ayres. Watch it now here:

The outfit’s myriad influences are distilled into a deeply moving art-form that defies categorization, merging texture and style into music that’s thrilling, addictive, and unapologetically original. Lead singer and keyboardist Courtney Swain‘s soaring vocals again prove to be instantly arresting whereas guitarist Ben Levin, bassist Jessica Kion, drummer Gavin Wallace-Ailsworth, violinist Chris Baum and sound designer Vince Welch (who also mixed the album) shine with an expert performance that brilliantly fuses a vibrant selection of moods and dynamics.

Ben Levin comments of the new single: “When everything seems to be falling apart around us, the path of least emotional resistance can be to just feel nothing. Our song Hold Me In is the sound of someone gripping their emotions so hard that unprecedented waves of pain and beauty shoot out from between their fingers.

You Know What They Mean‘ will be available as a Limited Edition CD Digipak, Gatefold LP + CD & as digital album, featuring the previously released single ‘Catch Light’ & artwork by Riki Nitabaru. Pre-order now here:

The band has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Their last three albums, 2017’s Land Animal, 2016’s Say So and 2014’s Shiny Eyed Babies, were hailed as significant art-rock achievements, and the band continues to be garnished with praise for their live show, performing hundreds of concerts worldwide to date.
