With their forthcoming digital EP release, ‘By Fire’, the band offer a set of recorded covers for the first time in their career, teaming up an eclectic array of guest singers and instrumentalists including Michael Mayo, Becca Stevens, DAWN, Josh Dion (of Paris Monster) and Gerald Clayton, to put their own spin on five songs by Hiatus Kaiyote, Wye Oak, Soundgarden, The Band and John Legend.

Produced by Kneebody

This EP release also marks the start of a new era for Kneebody, as bassist Kaveh Rastegar steps aside and sees the band move from a quintet to a quartet with Nate Wood taking the dual role of drummer and bassist, for which he has become brilliantly and inventively known in recent years in his solo project fOUR.

Since releasing their self-titled album in 2005, Kneebody, based across the US in Brooklyn, Denver and Reno, have created a genre and style all their own. With explosive rock energy, high-level nuanced chamber ensemble playing and adventurous no-holds-barred improvising, Kneebody have amassed an impressive list of credits and accomplishments while the band has continued to thrive and grow in reputation, solidifying a fan base around the world.
