Premiere: Know Secrets Embody The Aggressive Spirit of Punk with ‘At Rise’

Maybe it’s the warmer weather, but I’ve recently found myself with quite a penchant for the sounds of brash and in your face punk. Know Secrets is a band from San Francisco who has taken this genre and blended it with their post-hardcore influence similar to bands like Fugazi and Queens Of The Stone Age. They will release their new album, ‘At Rise,’ later this month through the 301 Collective. There’s a lot about this record that makes it feel important. There’s the fact that ‘At Rise’ is a collaborative effort between the band’s only traditional member, Eric Urbach, and nineteen other incredible musicians from the Bay Area — and the fact that the energy of these songs feels so much like a flash in the pan. There’s a visceral feeling of anger that’s the real driving force of these songs that works in tandem with the nature of punk rock; it’s incredibly present on songs like “The American Lust” and “Tell Me About The World.”

You can stream ‘At Rise’ in full below before it’s release on June 11th.
