Things have been going pretty great for the dudes in Kneebody. They recently signed to Concord. Their debut album on the label, The Line, drops September 24th. As their EPK below can attest, now that they've got some major label backing, they can focus on rocking hard and not spinning all the production plates at once. The proof will soon be in the pudding.

On top of that, saxophonist Ben Wendel is all over Linda Oh's fantastic new album, Sun Pictures. Keyboardist Adam Benjamin pitched in on EDM extraordinaire Daedalus' upcoming album, Drown Out. Of course, there's also the requisite touring in support of The Line so make sure to check them out live while the rest of us will make sure to cop the album on iTunes and Amazon when it drops in September.
