The Year of the Knife

Well it is finally official. Pendulum will take a year long hiatus from live shows to allow Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen to focus entirely on their Knife Party project. They played their final live gig until 2013 leaving many to wonder if Pendulum is dead. Now we here are all huge fans of the band and are sad to see it go, but also are excited to hear way more Knife Party in our future. Pendulum will still continue to perform DJ sets throughout 2012 with Swire tweeting “Its not the end” in regards to Pendulum after giving his keyboard away to the crowd during their final live show of the year.

Knife Party looks to follow their current popularity in the upcoming year. With a recent EP release and a mega collaboration with the Swedish House Mafia the sky is the limit for these two. One way they plan to increase their fan base is a full US tour with a headlining gig already announced for Ultra Music Festival this spring. Expect every show of theirs to be packed with ticket prices begging you to ask, how did they become so big so quick? I predict Knife Party will reach heights equivalent of what Skrillex accomplished in 2011. Be on the look out for tour dates and more releases from these two in the near future. Until then enjoy their NYE mix they did for the Triple J Mix Up Show.
