Knife Party & Tom Morello – Battle Sirens
The rumors are true! Knife Party and legendary Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello have come together to produce a mighty genre-breaking track. ‘Battle Sirens‘ incorporates a heavy signature Tom Morello guitar sound within the break which is mixed very well by Rob Swire as he includes a range of drum and percussion sounds. This builds up into a energetic filthy trap drop.
You may have heard this track at Ultra during the Knife Party/Pendulum headline slot earlier this year when Tom Morello himself was invited on stage. In an interview with Billboard, Knife Party said:
“Tom hit us up when we were in the studio saying he’d always loved the idea of merging his guitar riffs into the electronic world and we bounced some ideas back and forth until we had the final version. Performing this track live as a surprise during our Ultra set was insane.”
Tom Morello went on to say the following:
“Battle Sirens is the cross genre hard guitar/hard EDM mashup I’ve been waiting to hear for years. The devastating grooves, monster drops and insane tension that are a hallmark of both Knife Party and Rage Against the Machine are elevated to a crazy level with this jam.“
The track will officially released and available to buy on Friday, September 9th.
