Based in North London, sinister indie rock outfit The Knievel Dead formed in 2012 with the release of their first album ‘And We Sleep’.

‘And We Sleep’ quickly found its way onto BBC 6Music’s Mixtape with Tom Robinson, as well as Shoreditch Radio. The Knievel Dead followed this up by playing gigs around the UK and were selected for NXNE 2013 in Toronto. This coincided with their 2nd release, in the form of a 3-track EP titled ‘Psychosis’ which also featured on Shell Zenner’s Amazing Radio show, Roundhouse Radio and Zoe Bryant’s Hoxton Radio show. In 2014 the band headlined Hi-Hat Festival in Szczecinek, Poland.

The band released their long awaited 2nd album ‘We Will Fall’, early March 2015. Shortly after the current line-up disbanded due to difficulties with distance. Now up and running again with a new line up and a new EP ready to drop in early 2019!

‘…their album release seems to be one of the best-kept secrets on the planet. Which is a shame because it's damn good.’ Tom Robinson 6music (And We Sleep 2012)
