The Knife have unveiled the video for their new track ‘A Tooth For An Eye’ – watch it below.
The track will appear on the Swedish duo’s much anticipated third album ‘Shaking The Habitual’, which is released on April 8. The video features a school gymnasium where a young girl leads a group of men into a dance. She cries ” I’m telling you stories, trust me” – a quote borrowed from Jeanette Winterson’s novel The Passion.
‘Shaking The Habitual’ is The Knife’s first album since 2006’s ‘Silent Shout’ and will feature a guest appearance from Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum. Since the release of ‘Silent Shout’, singer Karin Dreijer Andersson released one self-titled album as Fever Ray, in 2009. In 2010 she and bandmate Olof Dreijer collaborated with Mt Sims and Planningtorock on the Charles Darwin-inspired opera ‘Tomorrow, In A Year’.
The band are set to play two dates at London’s Roundhouse on their forthcoming European on April 8 and 9. Tickets are onsale now. To check the availability of The Knife tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
