Limited vinyl pressing of thebandknives debut album "KNIVES" (only 300 will be made)

thebandknives debut album "KNIVES" is getting it's first and ONLY vinyl pressing with your help.

Limited to 300 copies total and for a pledge of 25$ you can own this very rare punk/rap/fusion project by rapper Mr. J. Medeiros, guitarists Tim Stewart and Ricky Tillo, and drummer Spanky McCurdy- with special guests Monte Nueble on keys, Cole Whittle on bass, and a feature by Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies.

About the "KNIVES" record:
thebandknives give Rap-Rock a face lift combining the power and grit of Post- Hardcore music with the lyrical complexity and vocal acrobatics you find in the purest form of Hip Hop.

Front man Mr. J. Medeiros is a top tier rapper with a flow in the
Eminem/ Kendrick Lamar vein and a vocal shrill reminiscent of Zach de la Rocha/ Ad- Rock. Mr. J’s subject matter is intense, poetic, sometimes political, and always thought provoking. Before turning his talents to the band, Mr. J. Medeiros performed in a duo with French producer 20Syl under the group name AllttA, who most recently (2017) ranked TOP 5 in artists with the most festival tours in Europe.

When not performing with Lady GaGa, guitarists Tim Stewart and Ricky Tillo plug into the band machine to create a soundscape middle finger for all genres to see. Comfortable and confident playing stadiums with the worlds most popular artists, Tim and Ricky however really get their point across in a face to face setting. Having worked with everyone from Suicidal Tendencies to Rihanna it’s clear they’re versatile but what you see and hear with thebandknives is the very raw power and passion that comes from loving your craft above all accolades.

Tim, Ricky, and Mr. J. Medeiros make up the core of thebandknives but work and tour extensively with a few extremely gifted musicians.

For the recording of their debut album “KNIVES” they enlisted drum phenomenon George “Spanky” McCurdy - exclusively. Spanky is a force all his own, many great artists have asked for his expertise: Kanye, Justin Timberlake, Lauryn Hill, among others. His sound and style is unique and impossible to ignore. On “KNIVES” Spanky bullies his way into this “genre” taking away all frills and leaving only the spectacle of raw hard-to- attain talent.

The “KNIVES” album also features Mike Muir from Suicidal Tendencies and additional musicianship by Monte Neuble (Eminem/ Rihanna keyboardist) and Cole Whittle (DNCE bassist).

Thebandknives have a range of musicianship from straight up Punk to “avant-garde” Hip Hop. They take you back to when these two genre's we're born but then drag you by the hair forward to a new set of musical and lyrical standards.

This is what Rap- Rock should have always sounded like.
