Knifes were formed when two roadies of Linkin Park decided to start writing their own music and jamming together. Ben Young was the guitar tech for Linkin Park's Brad Delson, and Warren Johnson joined him on the drums. Eventually, the pair worked for Fall Out Boy together, and recruited Pete Wentz's bass tech Brian Diaz for their new group, thus forming the trio.
A press release for the announcement of their debut release Proof of Concept notes that the members have also worked for Slipknot, Deftones and Guns N' Roses. Pre-order the upcoming EP, out Oct. 2,here.
