(Photo by Jon Bergman) The Knife are 20 in 2020. To commemorate the release of their very first 7” on August 14, 2000, the band in conjunction with their label partners are making available some previously unreleased music on the same date, August 14, this year.
Mute North America will launch a series of digital and vinyl reissues that have been inaccessible on most music providers in North America. Notable items include multiple remixes of Deep Cuts favorites “Heartbeats”, “Pass This On”, and “You Take My Breath Away” from various international editions as well as the “Pass This On” vinyl 7″.
Also among the August 14 reissues is “The Knife: Live At Terminal 5” which was previously only released in select territories. The live album will be available on physical and digital formats worldwide.
Finally, the band will digitally release their soundtrack to the 2003 Swedish thriller “Hannah Med H”. The band are currently planning an event to mark the anniversary of The Knife later this year with news and details to follow soon.
From Sweden with love

The Knife disbanded in November 2014 after releasing their 2013 album “Shaking the Habitual” and completing its attendant tour.
