Cycling through states of mind and fits of feeling, CANNONS ebb and flow between otherworldly electro-soundscapes and evocative vocal transmissions, layering breezy pop atop cinematic sonic architecture. The L.A. group—Michelle Joy [vocals], Ryan Clapham [lead guitar], and Paul Davis [drums, keys]— physically incite body movement and mentally provoke thought. The trio have consistently enabled escape via their songs. Following a tireless grind, they quietly shook-up popular culture with their 2019 independent sophomore outing, Shadows. The single “Fire For You” initially toppled The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs Chart at #1 in the wake of a placement on NETFLIX’s Never Have I Ever. The success translated to multiple radio formats as they clinched #1 on both Alternative and Triple A, earning them a 2022 iHeart Radio Award nomination for ‘Best New Alternative Artist.’ With the song notably eclipsing 87 million Spotify streams, SiriusXM touted the band on the “Class of 2020, while YouTube named CANNONS among its “Artists on the Rise.” Beyond inciting critical applause, they wowed audiences at LollapaloozaFireflyOutside Lands, and more. After amassing hundreds of millions of streams and earning acclaim from Consequence, OnesToWatchLA Weekly, and more, the trio captivate like never before on their third full-length offering, Fever Dream [released March 25 via Columbia Records], led by the singles “Bad Dream” and “Hurricane.”

 

The upcoming tour will be the first time The Knocks will be performing their fully LIVE electronic performance in more than 3 years, a celebration of the recently released and eagerly anticipated third album, HISTORY, available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. Among its many highlights, HISTORY includes the brand-new single, “Nobody But Me (Ft. Cold War Kids).” Listen HERE.  The album also includes collaborations with MUNA, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Foster The People, Cold War Kids, Parson James, Dragonette, Cannons, Mallrat, Donna Missal, YOKE LORE and POWERS, alongside such high-energy singles as “All About You (Ft. Foster The People),” “Bang Bang (Ft. Donna Missal),” “Walking On Water (Ft. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs)“ and the spellbinding “Slow Song (w/ Dragonette),” which is joined by an official music video shot in Mexico City and starring Aquaria from Ru Paul’s Drag Race and The Real Housewives of New York City.

The Knocks have been hailed worldwide for a carefree electronic sound that freely draws from soul, funk, disco, hip hop, house, and pop. Comprised of James Patterson and Ben Ruttner, the NYC-based duo have unleashed a dizzying array of dance music for more than a decade, spanning two acclaimed albums, multiple EPs, collaborations with artists across the musical spectrum, high profile network TV appearances, and showstopping DJ sets and live performances all over the world. The Knocks’ first LP release since 2018’s New York Narcotic – highlighted by the Alt Radio hit “Ride Or Die (Ft. Foster The People)“ – HISTORY follows the duo’s recent collaboration with Kungs (“People“) as well their feature on ODESZA’s “Love Letter (Ft. The Knocks).”
