Hot Knife

Brooklyn, NY

Hot Knife is a melodic, riff-driven, and (at times) surfy punk band repping Brooklyn, NY. Founded in fall 2015—a dozen years after members Vic Castello and Luke Taylor went to high school together—they joined up with Ryan Weber and Matt Ferraro to start writing songs. Boasting a formidable resume, Hot Knife features current/ex members of Spanish Gamble, Static Radio, and Candy Hearts. Last year, the band teamed up with with Phil Douglas of Iron Chic to record a 2-song EP released by NJ label Black Numbers. In March, this year, they hit the studio with Jesse Canon (who has worked with fest vet bands like menzingers and none more black) for their debut EP release, details TBA!
