Bent Knee Signs With Cuneiform Records / by Chris Baum


I'm humbled and honored to announce that Bent Knee will be releasing our next album under the legendary Cuneiform Records label in May 2016. Our sound has always existed in the nooks and crannies just outside of the mainstream, and it’s exciting to have finally found a home that fully supports the music we’re interested in making. Here’s to the next chapter — we can’t wait for you all to hear what we’ve been cooking up in the lab.

Full press release below:

Cuneiform Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Boston, MA art-rock band Bent Knee. The group will release their third album, a follow-up to 2014’s Shiny Eyed Babies, on the label in May 2016.

For the past thirty years, Cuneiform has been widely recognized as an international force in the world of the avant-garde and cutting-edge, championing artists that organically fuse elements from various styles to form vibrant, evocative, and forward-thinking music. In this respect, they’re the perfect home for Bent Knee, a band that has defied genre since its inception in 2009. The group bridges the gap between the experimental and the familiar, merging texture and style into music that’s moving, addictive, and unapologetically original.
