For the first time in seven years, The Knife are back on the road supporting a new album: the Top Star-earning Shaking the Habitual. According to reports, the album title is a fitting label for the concerts, as the duo’s live show has caused some discord amongst attendees and fans.
You too can get a sense of the “performances”, as more videos have continued to show up online. Below, you can watch HD performance footage of “Tooth for an Eye” from May 4th in Paris, followed by “Silent Shout” and “Got 2 Let U” from their show on the 8th at London’s Roundhouse, featuring everything from back-lit crotch-thrusting to streamer dancing.
The Knife will continue to tour their show through Europe at the dates below. Still waiting on those North American dates to pop up.
