What band refuses to cooperate with the media, answer requests for interviews, and up until recently, refused to perform live?  How did you guess? Its The Knife.  The swedish siblings, Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer, shake a fist at the “man” and make music for music’s sake.  Formed in 1999, the duo stayed off the stage until 2005 when they played their first live performance at London’s ICA.  In 2006 The Knife took the act on the road bringing their electro hotness to sold out shows across the world.  

theknifeThree years after their last album release, Silent Shout, The Knife is back in action and this time they are working on an opera.  Set to release in September of ’09 “Tomorrow in a Year” celebrates 150 years since the publication of Darwin’s Origin of Species.  With musical compositions from The Knife, choreography by  Japanese choreographer and dancer Hiroaki Umeda, and the father of evolution as the main inspiration, this will be one for the books.
