Bent Knee - Reveal Paper Earth Concert

Boston-based experimental group Bent Knee, who were nominated in the Best Avantgarde / Experimental Metal category with Land Animal at Metal Storm Awards 2017, have released a concert film of the band's first full-scale contemporary-classical composition, entitled 'Paper Earth'. You can watch it now here.

Following the release of their acclaimed album, Land Animal and US/European tours, the group was selected by Judd Greenstein (New Amsterdam Records) and jointly commissioned by NYC's Ecstatic Music Festival & Celebrity Series of Boston's Stave Sessions to compose a new work for the band and percussion ensemble. Bent Knee teamed up with Samuel Solomon and the Boston Conservatory Percussion Ensemble to create what would be the group's first-ever collaborative composition of this kind. The final result is a mesmerizing six-movement, 30-minute journey that explores how memory continuously alters our present. The piece premiered live at the Apples & Olives Festival in Zurich in March 2018, followed by performances at Celebrity Series' Stave Sessions in Boston the Ecstatic Music Festival in New York.

Bent Knee continues to tour extensively supporting the release of Land Animal and have embarked on a summer run across the US, performing favourites from their catalogue and previewing new material.
