Based in London, the intensely sinister indie rock exploit The Knievel Dead formed in September 2012 with the release of their first album ‘And We Sleep’ at The Dublin Castle in Camden.
This first offering quickly found its way onto BBC 6Music’s Mixtape with Tom Robinson, as well as Shoreditch Radio. Shortly after The Knievel Dead were selected for NXNE 2013 in Toronto, Canada. This coincided with their 2nd release, in the form of a 3-track EP titled ‘Psychosis’ which was also featured on Shell Zenner’s Amazing Radio show, Roundhouse Radio and Zoe Bryant’s Hoxton Radio show. In 2014 the band headlined Hi-Hat Festival in Szczecinek, Poland.
The band released their second album ‘We Will Fall’ into the wild with a launch party at The Enterprise, in early March 2015. However, shortly after this release, the original line up disbanded and a period of silence occurred. Since then, front man Odel has been locked away writing new material. Now with a new line up, The Knievel Dead rise again and are recording and rehearsing for a new set of shows to come in 2017. Watch this space!
