Boston art rockers Bent Knee have announced their sixth album, Frosting, due November 5 via Take This To Heart Records (pre-order). "This was definitely very different," said band member and producer Vince Welch. "Every other album had basically been the band in a room at at least some point in the process, but we finished this one still having never played these songs together. And then the technological limitation of having to send each other everything created this different dynamic that slowed everything down. You didn’t have to react to an idea in like half a second – you could take an afternoon to ponder it."
"The whole record is a mix of lighthearted and pretty songs, and then heavy, nasty songs," Vince adds. "I initially thought it was going to have to be multiple EPs, but we decided to lean into the differences between the songs and find an album order that switches as aggressively as possible."
