SLN-107 Is Here And Ready To Get Stuck In Your Head!

Officially out now is is the new 7" by The Knew, "What's Hip (Long Walk) b/w World War Ay Ay Ay (Alright)".  The A-Side embraces power-pop sheen with a New Orleans jazz-inflected backbone.  Jacob Hansen's pop-dosed vocals are bolstered by guest horns from Nick Krier and jumpy keys by Patrick Lee.  The B-side is The Knew's boldest release to date. Guitarist Tyler Breuer and bassist Tim Rynders rip forward toward the outer edges of punk. In the fashion of the Minutemen and the Buzzcocks, the jolting track clocks in at just over one minute. Blistering and fresh, it's one for the repeat listen file and another stamp on the Knew's vital record.  It is of course on 7" vinyl and hits your functional turntable at 45 RPM.  Also comes with a download code, all in our highly collectable gold company sleeve.  You can order one (or two or three...) from us right now!  They'll be popping up in shops and distros shortly.  Pressing Info: 300 on randomly mixed color vinyl
