Malaysian punk band Trophy Knives lay all to waste on debut single. The vocals has the vibe of a certain Blake Schwarzenbach of Jawbreaker fame, and the music is a blend of Anti-Flag-eque rock n’ roll. This shit is top notch Asian punk rock! The band sent in this write up mentioning a 4 song demo coming out next month! We can’t wait to premiere that here!
Asian punk rock lives!
“Trophy Knives is a three-piece punk rock band from Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia. Founded in 2016,Trophy Knives consists of Vinesh Muniandy (Vocals,Guitar),Syamir Ali (Bass,Vocals) and Sani Khalid (Guitars,Vocals). The base formula of the formation of the band has always been our undying love of punk rock and 90’s pop punk,we are heavily influenced by bands like Against Me! Jawbreaker,Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Anti-Flag and Bad Religion. At the end of the day,we are just three best friends playing music together while paying homage to this beautiful close- knit punk rock community that has taught us so much more than a text book ever could.
Our first single “Amputated” is a song that discusses the hyprocrasy of the modern world and the elaborate decay of the human spirit. “Amputated” is part of a four-song self-titled demo that we will be releasing on the 22nd of April 2017.
In a nutshell, we are ready to play shows and bring our brand of optimism to the forefront!”
