Knifeworld set out to Destroy The World

Knifeworld have launched their track Destroy The World We Love from upcoming album The Unravelling.

Mainman Kavus Torabi last month outlined the inspiration for what he’s called the most difficult record he’s ever been involved with.

Now he says of Destroy The World We Love: “It’s one of those rare songs that seemed to take on a trajectory all of its own – and sort of wrote itself. It was as much as we could do to saddle up and follow in its wake.

“When it finally got to wherever the hell it ended up we took off our goggles, looked back and realised we’d inadvertently spawned a sort of psychedelic Bohemian Rhapsody. ‘That’ll be the single then,’ we thought.”

The Unravelling is released via InsideOut on July 22 via InsideOut. See Knifeworld live in September:

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
