Hard-charging rockers Scalphunter launch their new double A side, Bleeding Out/Keepers Of The Night, at Jimmy’s Den this Friday, March 13, with support from Puck, Rag N’ Bone, Shit Narnia and DJs shake-a-sonic and Dazz K. We caught up with self-proclaimed “part time plus size underwear model/full time rock ‘n’ roll pig” Steve Knoth.

How’s it all going?

Man, 2015 is shaping up to be a big year! Starting with a national tour on the back of our new single release, we are dropping our debut album later in the year! Very exciting times!

What prompted you to release a double A side?

We decided to release our first single as a double A side because we really wanted some exposure before our album drop with the new recordings that are a real step up from our previous releases. Adam Round at Electric Studios has really managed to get the best out of Scalphunter, embracing our live heavy sound perfectly and pushing us to not settle and get the best sound down we possibly could.

You’ve picked an eclectic line up of support acts.

We have been embraced so warmly by an eclectic music loving community and we really wanted that to be reflected in the line up we chose to support our AA side release. We have been blown away by all the acts on the bill and really wanted to give the punters an awesome dynamic, diverse line up. Something for everyone.

And you’re playing a new venue, Jimmy’s Den.

Man we are so pumped to play Jimmy’s Den! It is exciting playing any venue but right now in the wake of all the venue closures and on the back of the amazing action meeting at The Bakery regarding this issue I feel like there is a real buzz around the venue and I cant wait to put a massive punkrocknroll stamp on it.
