David Knudson, guitarist for Botch and Minus the Bear, has announced the Undo / Redo EP, which lands on November 11 via Platoon/Seawall. To accompany the announcement, he’s shared a new song called ‘No Ways No Means’, which features vocals from Cursive frontman Tim Kasher. Check it out below.
“Upon first hearing Dave’s song, I found it very forward, direct, a nearly antagonistic guitar riff,” Kasher stated in a press release. “And those drums, so gnarly. I thought I’d complement it with something playfully antagonistic as well…”
Knudson commented: “Tim’s voice, lyrics and delivery are so unmistakable—funny, powerful & sly—he can tackle a serious subject but wink and have a laugh at the absurdity of it,” shares Knudson. “This collaboration was so natural and seamless—almost two decades in the making. We’ve been friends since 2003 when Cursive took out Minus the Bear and having all the shared experience and familiarity with each other’s work made it so simple and wonderful. Tim has such a unique and powerful range with his voice—I was so happy he wanted to tackle this super aggressive song because when he goes for it with his voice you can feel that intensity and there is no one better.”
Knudson’s debut solo album, The Only Thing You Have to Change Is Everything, came out earlier this year.
