The New Website is Open!

Hello everyone and welcome to the new Kniteforce website!

Isn’t it grand? Yes it is! Its splendid. I am ridiculously happy with it, and I am pretty sure you will be as well. Massive thank you to John Dent who has crafted a site that is nigh on perfect. I mean, we will add to it because we cant leave shit alone, but you know…

This blog post could be very long as there is so much to say, but I am going try and be brief and condense it all, and before I can really get on with it, I have to talk a little bit about the KF Bandcamp site:

Firstly, and importantly, we are not going to use Bandcamp in any real way from now on. New releases will appear on this site, and only weeks later will we add maybe 5 copies on Bandcamp, simply to notify people that the new releases exist. And those releases WILL NOT have the digital files attached to them. This site is now the primary place for many of the labels, and for some labels, like KFW, its the ONLY place to get them.

So to be clear, if you bought anything on the KF Bandcamp recently, such as the presale of Hectic, Acen, Wislov and JDS, those orders will go out as usual, and YOU WILL GET THE DIGITAL FILES AS USUAL. But after those last releases are sent out to everyone, we will zero out the stock on all the releases in the KF Bandcamp store and we will not be updating (that bundle is due to land in the next 2 weeks by the way).

There are numerous reasons for this change, partly its because of all the annoying stuff that Bandcamp forces on us, but mainly its because what we have here in the new site is about four hundred and sixty three times better. So lets just do a nice list of all the things you need to be aware of:

1. New Releases:

We have a bunch of new releases, and they are all IN STOCK. 

PLEASE NOTE: Bundles have their own section in the store now!

When you buy ANY physical release, you will automatically get a link to the digital download. This site supplies the digital in a zip file - and you get the whole release in wav and 320 mp3 formats, plus artwork and bonus goodies if we have them. We also have some represses, and you will find them on the front page of the site :)

2. A Free Record:

For this first week, we are giving away a free record with every order. You can “buy” the record here:

K03 - Luna-C - The Fucking Selfish EP Vol. 2

I say buy because you still have to pay for postage lol. I am generous, but not THAT generous. The record in question is one of my own, a pressing of some tracks I made ages ago but had remastered as I think they deserved to be on vinyl (hence the title of the EP lol) and I think you will love it. Please only order one copy as this is a very limited press of 150. If you order more than one, well, we will still only send you one lol.

3. Back Catalogue:

The entire older back catalogue has been put up on the site. EVERY digital release on this site has been remastered. We already had the Kniteforce  and Remix catalogue remastered. But now we have also had KFA, Influential, and Knitebreed done. Basically, if we are selling it on this site, it is a remastered version. And we are considering making some of the long sold out but previously unavailable vinyl releases available as digital files exclusively for this site. We will see :) If you are asking where Malice is, yes, it too has been remastered, but we have some other plans and those remasters will go up soon…all will be revealed there. We are even gonna do the smaller labels like Dyne and Strange Room. And there are compilation albums and other obscurities still to go up. Just…give us time! The council and I have already spent 100s of hours just uploading!!!

4. Subscribers / VIPers:

If you paid for a subscription on the KF bandcamp site, please set up a user account for this site, then email  or pm me on FB to let me know you have done so. Please use the name and email you used for the Bandcamp subscription so I have it for reference, and I will add you to the VIP section on this site. It has to be done manually because the VIP section on this site is invite only, and forever, and cost free. I always wanted it like this, but Bandcamp forced us to do it other ways. But we are here now, so…

VIPers get:

  • An automatic 10% discount on all non exclusive items.
  • Exclusive vinyl, CDs, and digital releases and content.
  • The first 60 Kniteforce Records releases for free as digital downloads.
  • The first 20 Remix Records releases for free as digital downloads.
  • The first 15 Knitebreed Records releases for free as digital downloads.
  • Early options on limited releases such as the Ks and KFWs!

5. Merchandise:

I wanted this ready for the day the site went live. I also wanted Skeletor’s Snake Mountain as a kid. Sometimes you just have to wait. I have been waiting 40 years for Snake Mountain. But we are expecting slipmats, kf shirts and record bags in the next week or two.

6. Friends:

Now that we have a shop that can handle it, we will shortly be stocking releases from labels we are friendly with, such as Cantina Cuts and Liftin Spirit. This is another Snake Mountain type deal, I just did not get time to get those releases ready. But they are coming…

7. Ticker:

You will notice the ticker on the front page. Right now its telling you about the free record, but in the future it will be used to tell you the progress of releases - what has been cut, what test presses have arrived, and incoming vinyl. So that will be fun and informative!

8. This Blog

I will be blogging more often about KF and forthcoming releases and things. But now Saiyan also has access to the blog and will be telling you about KFA and Malice. Meanwhile, Bradders and Lowercase will also be talking about their new projects, including the KF Radio and Twitch (we have a Twitch now?), 2nd Drop Recordings and Remix Records, which they are now managing!

9. Forthcoming, and how we are running…

One of the main reasons for leaving Bandcamp was simply practicality. Currently, we are releasing music on our own labels: Kniteforce, Knitebreed, KFA, Remix Records, Kniteforce White, with plans for both Malice and Influential. But we are also releasing music for our friends at Out Of Romford, Bear Necessities, and Stompin’ Tunes. More recently, Boombastic Plastic has come to us with a TON of unreleased material, and we have more coming from Just Another Label  - represses and unreleased EPs as well. The first 3 are cut, and the first 10 are confirmed…and then remixes too. WAIT! I missed out Hectic lol, thats how busy we have got! I can list all of those and miss out one of the best hardcore labels ever? Oh, and then theres 2nd Drop, Lazarus and 4 The Core vinyl coming too. And a HUGE project I cant even mention that is on none of those labels. Its busy, you know?

All of this is just to say that while Kniteforce is, and always will be, primarily a record label, we have grown and changed and spread out….and now? Now we are a little more than that, and so we need to have a website that functions sort of like a store. Like a specialist store, because I am truly not interested in stocking everything that comes out. But I am very interested in creating and promoting good music, and working with good people, and finding fun exciting projects to get my teeth into…for that, we need a proper outlet, a proper store, where we can release music on a bi weekly or even weekly basis. We just…outgrew Bandcamp.

So welcome to the new Kniteforce Revolution website. Its gonna be fun! Oh, and heres a video for the forthcoming KFW EPs, out on the 27th of July…
