Krill is back, baby. Basically. As teased last year, the three members of the beloved Boston-bred band Krill have reformed under the name Knot. Their new band is made up of the three Krill members at the time of their break-up in 2015 — Jonah Furman, Aaron Ratoff, and Ian Becker — plus new guitarist Joe DeManuelle-Hall. Krill never broke up for long, reuniting to play shows quite a few times in the last 5 years, but they haven’t put out a new full-length album since A Distant Fist Unclenching.
Today, they’re announcing their debut album as Knot, also called Knot — it’ll be out in August — and we’re getting its lead single, “Foam.” It’s nervy and anxious, not too far from the Krill blueprint but it sounds a bit more refined, less explosive and more ruminating. “Was my father right when he said ‘Maybe we are all just evil motherfuckers?'” Furman asks in a particularly biting moment. “I believe in people’s power/ But not at this late hour/ Personally.”
