has been touring the world, trolling the web and sitting in-studio preparing their upcoming album Abandon Ship.
To promote, Knife Party
has been playing their new material to crowds abroad but otherwise have only given us small glimpses into the makings of this highly anticipated release. "Resistance" is the latest and fullest piece of new material we've received from the much-anticipated Abandon Ship
and the best news is - it's FREE
Knife Party - 'Resistance' (Free Download)
Not your D'n'B or brostep Knife Party, this is class-A Festival electro-house Knife Party and oh, the festival influence is strong with this one!
Complete with some familiar suspense building and synth patches, "Resistance" was born to be played on the main stage! No surprise, since the dynamic duo have been on a literal crap-ton of main stages these past 2 years.
For those who don't know, Knife Party is two of the members of the D'n'B/rock group Pendulum
. After making a firm stance in drum and bass, Gareth McGrillen and Rob Swire started a new creative project which went on to win over millions of dance music fans with their hits
"Destroy Them With Lasers" and "Internet Friends" in 2011. "Fire Hive" as also a major hit making the 100% No Modern Talking EP
one of the most sought-after releases of the year. Now Knife Party has gotten much more international and have honed their style to precision. Even though their last few tracks have been festival electro, I hope Knife Party
retake their strong mid-tempo and dubstep (brostep) origins.

to Abandon Ship!
