Olympia’s Survival Knife (ex-Unwound) Get ‘Survivalized’ on Chunklet!

Olympia’s Survival Knife started out with a whalloping one-two punch of singles on Kill Rock Stars and Sub Pop last year which any/all discerning record buyer purchased. Hot off the heels of their blistering full length (Loose Power on Issac Brock’s Glacial Pace label) earlier this year, Survival Knife are back with a new release (Survivalized) just in time for their first east coast tour. Survival Knife’s sound embodies the fierce guitar work of Justin Trosper and Brandt Sandeno (both from the legendary Unwound) along with the husband/wife team of Kris and Meg Cunningham. Think Greg Ginn. Think John Reis. Think guitar rock. Plain and simple. “Thud of the Jackboot” bursts open five songs of unparalleled whoopass. Guitar rock in 2014. Admit it. You want it back. Now it’s time for Chunklet to have a piece of Survival Knife’s raw sturm und drang. Gorgeous front cover artwork by renowned sci-fi illustrator Trevor Claxton. Vinyl only.
