Thanks to everyone who came to the dates with Peter Heppner last month. The tour was a huge success, bringing KNIGHT$ to a new German audience. Peter was celebrating 30 years in music, and it was a pleasure to be a part of the line up alongside Marcus Meyn of (Camouflage) and Kim Sanders (Schiller).
2017 has been a outstanding first year for KNIGHT$. Releasing the What’s Your Poison? EP and touring with Melotron, Zoot Woman and Heaven 17. We are now working on the follow up to the Alligator EP for release in 2018, and some club dates will be added for Spring.
KNIGHT$ will open for Peter Heppner in November as part of his 30th anniversary in music.
Peter Heppner (born 7 September 1967 in Hamburg) is the former lead singer of the German electronica/synth pop band Wolfsheim, and has collaborated with many other electronic music acts, such as Paul van Dyk, Schiller, and Goethes Erben.

KNIGHT$ will hit the road in September to play four stripped down shows with US pianist Michael Gilham. These dates will preview songs from the forthcoming KNIGHT$ EP, with a few surprise tracks to be included.
Join us at one of these intimate shows before the full KNIGHT$ live project launches in 2017.
September 13 – The Slaughtered Lamb – London (UK)
September 14 – The Talking Heads – Southampton (UK)
KNIGHT$ started early in 2016 when I started recording with producer Martin Dubka in London. Three tracks came from these sessions. “What We Leave Behind”, “So Cold” and “What’s Your Poison”. These songs will be released in September, along with my debut video and a few remixes.
Since February I’ve been playing through the songs with pianist Michael Gilham. They are very different when approached in this way, but seeing as it will take a little while longer to get the full electronic live project together, this is the best way for me to get out there and perform over the Summer.
