We're very much looking forward to play an improvised set at the upcoming Stranger Than Paranoia Festival at the Paradox Tilburg at the end of the month 29th of december. For the first time KNALPOT will be playing with our friend and hero Jozef Dumoulin (on rhodes and electronics). Also on the bill that night is the great jazz trio Labtrio from Belgium and Myles Sanko & band. We hope you can make it.
Come see us at our concerts this month, this is your chance. Afterwards we take a break to concentrate on other projects. The support of these concerts (except the swiss and french ones) will be played by singer and electronic music artist Perrine Bailleux aka Perrine en Morceaux from Paris.
A long collaboration with filmmakers Daniel Bruce & Tara Gautam paid off. Thanks a lot also to Revolver Media, TAX music video fund and editor Rigel Kilston for the support. "Plainly Fantastic" (VICE magazine)
Alexander JE Bradley made a photo for us. Thank you, Alexander!
KNALPOT appears in the music documentary DO IT TOGETHER of our friend Alek Riquelme. Happy and proud to be part of it.
