Watch Bent Knee’s video for new song Paper Earth

Bent Knee have released a live video for a brand new track, Paper Earth.

The 30-minute, six-part track is a journey that explores how memory continously alters the present. The Boston-based art rock band were commissioned by NYC’s Ecstatic Music Festival & Celebrity Series of Boston’s Stave Sessions to compose the piece.

The footage of the band performing Paper Earth was recorded live in Zurich, where the composition was premiered. Watch it below.

Bent Knee released their third album, Land Animal, in 2017 via InsideOut Music. They begin a North American tour on June 6.

Dave Everley has been writing about and occasionally humming along to music since the early 90s. During that time, he has been Deputy Editor on Kerrang! and Classic Rock, Associate Editor on Q magazine and staff writer/tea boy on Raw, not necessarily in that order. He has written for Metal Hammer, Louder, Prog, the Observer, Select, Mojo, the Evening Standard and the totally legendary Ultrakill. He is still waiting for Billy Gibbons to send him a bottle of hot sauce he was promised several years ago.
