BostonBent Knee, the Boston-based band Consequence of Sound said are “truly the definition of experimentalism,” release the graphically-rich video for “Bone Rage”, from the band’s forthcoming album, You Know What They Mean (Oct. 11, InsideOutMusic). Watch “Bone RageHERE.

“’Bone Rage’ is a song that makes concert halls shake and expectations collapse,” explains guitar player Ben Levin, who also directed the video. “It seemed fitting to make its video full of destruction and solid objects taking on unanticipated forms. The visuals pull you through like you’re handcuffed to a firetruck, but I think you’ll be grateful for the workout when it’s over.”

Bent Knee previously released a video for “Hold Me In”, which Brooklyn Vegan said of: “Singer Courtney Swain is a true powerhouse —she can belt it like Whitney Houston while staying as eccentric as Kate Bush — and she and the rest of the band provide ‘Hold Me In’ with an atmospheric, constantly shapeshifting backdrop that could fit in nicely next to stuff like Radiohead or Porcupine Tree.” Watch “Hold Me In” HERE.

The “Bone Rage” video follows news that the band will be joining Thank you Scientist for a five-week North American tour this Fall (begins Nov. 7).
