Electronic duo Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, a.k.a. Knife Party, have become one of the most renowned dance acts in the EDM world. They’ve created worldwide smash hit singles such as “Antidote” with Swedish House Mafia from their 100% No Modern Talking EP, “Centipede,” “Bonfire,” and continued to create smash hits featured in their Rage Valley and Haunted House EPs.
After the release of their 2014 debut album Abandon Ship, Knife Party’s international presence grew exponentially. The album was described by Insomniac as a “56-minute masterpiece…an album that unapologetically moved through genres, mashing them together in ways we didn’t think were possible.” A four-track EP called Trigger Warning then followed in 2015.
Now, Knife Party introduced a fire collaboration with legendary guitarist Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine / Audioslave / Prophets of Rage, called “Battle Sirens.” The EDM-rock influenced song is a combination of funky guitar riffs and monster drops with bold bass beats.
Following their headlining set at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, Knife Party and Morello released a brand new live performance of the track, amplifying the intensity of the electronic duo’s dubstep drops and the guitarist’s signature crazy jam. The official live video of “Battle Sirens” features the two artists from their performance at the music festival along with a frenetic light show and bursts of flames as they performed in front of 150,000 ravers.
