Cairo Knife Fight Releases Full Length Album - The Colossus - On May 29

20 April 2015 - 0 Comments

Written and recorded over three countries and two continents, The Colossus is the debut album from New Zealand rock act, Cairo Knife Fight.

Differing from previous releases, this album sees frontman Nick Gaffaney expanding his writing horizons to include working with some of the best talent on offer within New Zealand and beyond.

"This album has been a project that's mirrored my nomadic and hectic life over the past 2 years” says Gaffaney.

“Written with and influenced by a number of extraordinarily talented friends from all over the world - some of whom I hadn't even met when the process started- it's a genuine culmination of all the experiences Cairo Knife Fight has had, but also a launchpad to the band's future musical direction"

While staying true to the duo ethos of the band in recording, this record features writing appearances from New Zealand musicians Aaron Tokona, Joel Haines, Laughton Kora and William Knapp, American Legend Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of The Stone Age) and Los Angeles producers/musicians Tyler Fournames (Marilyn Manson) and John Anderson (Banks).

Sessions took place between Auckland, Christchurch, Rakaia, Melbourne, Los Angeles and New York City with the final result being overseen and mixed by NYC based Kiwi ex-pat producer Justyn Pilbrow (The Neighbourhood, King 810).

This diversity in writing partners has seen an album develop of great subtlety and dynamism while still maintaining that fierce and razor sharp intensity Cairo Knife Fight is known for.

Pre-Order The Colossus from iTunes now.
