about

"locating their nucleus in ground between the late 80’s Dischord and Touch & Go labels... [Knife The Symphony's ] banging, whirling, ridiculously rhythmic post-punk emo attack is a wonder, especially given the generous cool down periods of sinister slowcore quiet they interject… these guys are inhuman.”
—BIG TAKEOVER #65

"[Swear Jar is] destined to be enjoyed intensely by a handful of weirdos"
—COLLECTIVE ZINE (UK)

KNIFE SIDE: Tracked at Million Yen Studios, Chicago, Illinois with Jeff Dean, November, 2011. Additional recording by Andy Perkins at The Litter Box in Northern Kentucky, Winter, 2012. Mixed by Andy Perkins at The Litter Box Spring/Summer, 2012. Additional vocals by Drew Bogner. Additional percussion by Jerry Dirr.

SWEAR SIDE: Swear Jar recorded their tracks to tape for zero dollars in the home of an unsuspecting vacationing family. Vocals and overdubs were then recorded later in the basement of an unsuspecting woman as she went on vacation. Long story short, if you go on vacation, Swear Jar will make a record inside your house.

Vinyl pre-mastering by Carl Saff. Cut for vinyl by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service.
