SummaryThe Knux are composed of brothers Kentrell "Krispy" Lindsey and Alvin "Joey" Lindsey. They were born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, but were displaced due to Hurricane Katrina, after which the brothers moved to Los Angeles, California. The group's name is short for The Knuckle Heads. Their song "Bang! Bang!" was featured in the promo for Season 5 of Entourage. Additionally, their song "Cappucino" was featured in the film Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. The Knux are well known for their intense live shows; in 2009, they were invited to perform at almost every major music festival in North America. They have also toured with a slew of diverse artists spanning various genres including Common, Q-Tip, Nas, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, DJ AM, Travis Barker and DJ Cobra among other renowned artists.
Earlier this year, with the release of "She's So Up" launching the campaign for their second album, Eraser, The KNUX rapidly sparked the attention of fans and critics alike. Continuing on the impressive trend, the past few months have seen The Knux first blow the minds of SXSW-goers and Carson Daly, then take their party on the road with their self devised House Party Tour, performing in the homes, garages, and backyards of Facebook fans from Texas to California this past May.
While the guys finished some final mixes in LA, they were selected for the coveted opening slot performing with Weezer at Stubbs in Austin, followed by a trip to Tennessee to wow Bonnaroo attendees with their crowd surfing and unique stage antics. A few days after, they were in Vancouver playing with none other than Kid Cudi, the same hip-hopper who lent his vocals to the new single by The Knux, "Run", to be relased on iTunes July 12th with a music video later that month. With their new album Eraser out on Cherry Tree/ Interscope September 27th, The KNUX are now moving East for a string of dates and European festivals.
