Topshelf Records To Release Knots, The New LP From UK’s Crash of Rhinos in the U.S. This Summer
New Song (“Openers”) Streaming
Ever since first hearing Distal in 2011 we’ve been hooked on Crash of Rhinos. The Derby, UK natives have written a record — entitled — that is exactly what I ever want to listen to. So when we were asked to get involved with releasing it, it was kind of a no-brainer. Sonically, it fits perfectly with our catalog and if you’re typically a fan of records we put out, you’re gonna like this.
Topshelf Records has partnered with the UK’s Big Scary Monsters Records and Italy’s To Lose La Track Records to release Knots, the new LP from Derby, UK outfit Crash of Rhinos in the U.S. Knots will be out in late summer. Pre-orders will launch soon.
Have a listen to a new song, “Opener”, from the forthcoming release-
Crash of Rhinos are five friends from Derby, UK. The most popular work used to describe them is ‘loud’. They make a racket. They’ve got 2 guitars, 2 basses and a drum kit, and they shout the best they can.
Having played together in various formations for more than a decade (The Little Explorer, The Jesus Years) they all got in a room and played whatever came out. What came out was Distal, their debut LP. Released in 2011, they followed it up by touring the UK and Europe, meeting loads of ace folks along the way. The band’s new full length, Knots, will be released stateside in late summer 2013.
