ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Knievel last visited the US to play CMJ and a few other low-key shows. At home in Australia they have supported Buffalo Tom, Teenage Fanclub, Luna, Joe Pernice, Chris Knox, The Posies, You Am I and in 2000 they toured with Ken Stringfellow both as his backing band and support act.

Their third record, The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out Your Voice has been released in Australia on Architecture Label (Death Cab for Cutie) and Painted Sky in Japan (The Posies and Pedro The Lion). With an American release date set, Knievel will be spending a few months in the U.S. converting fans to the beauty that is The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out Your Voice.

A lot to say. The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out Your Voice is worth every breath, though. A beautiful, emotive record that captures your imagination and haunting fears, it is a record that somehow brings back all your hidden thoughts and memories and helps you win them once and for all, cleaning house and making room for the future.

A well-written, lyrically strong masterpiece of well-groomed pop music and expressive rock, Knievel is not afraid to leave you with some important piece of the puzzle, a thought to ponder while the glorious hooks, captivating harmonies, and enchanting rhythms sweep over you before jumping into a dizzying rock spell.

Knievel seems to have delivered an album worthy of your excitement, an album that will take your mind off life for a while and leave you with something - a feeling of control and direction- rather than making you feel like you've lost your way.

Those that hear The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out Your Voice will understand all of this. With one listen to the album it will all begin to make sense. Relax and enjoy. You're in for a good time.

Key Selling Points:

-Toured with Ken Stringfellow (as his backing band and support act), Buffalo Tom, Teenage Fanclub, Luna, Joe Pernice, Chris Knox, The Posies, and You Am I.

-Front Man Wayne Connolly has a long list of production credits, including You Am I.

Robert Ciccotosto

Indie pop at its absolute finest
This album is full of great songs, performed in such a way as to enhance the melodies. Sublime guitars and vocal harmonies dominate. Don't Explain is my favorite track, but all of them are excellent, with no filler. All in all, a terrific album.

Pamela Rooney

Indie pop-rock ethic of self-searching themes and dynamic presentation on a disc
From Australia by way of In Music We Trust, the popetteers of this band show their prowess for both performance and writing in this third release. The feel of the album is dimensional and far-reaching, as the spatial plane created by the shimmering guitars and genuinely apt expression of rhythm are complimented well by the plaintive vocals and lilting melodies. This CD gets high marks for clarity in even the most subtle of details, providing the listener room to relax and take in every single intricacy of the total form. If you can, be sure to catch their live show the next time they’re near you. It is one of the most enjoyable I’ve experienced so far this year.
