Powerhouse Rock Duo CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT Strike US Ground; SXSW 2012 Appearance

Cairo Knife Fight, New Zealand’s electrifying power rock duo, makes an intergalactic impact on US ground as they announce the arrival of their sonic sound to this year’s 2012 SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.  Cairo Knife Fight, who released their second EP “II” via Liberation Music in August 2011, is comprised of drummer / lead vocalist Nick Gaffaney and Aaron Tokona on guitar and effects.  Together, this potent pair issues forth pulsating guitar riffs illuminated with haunting vocals and phantasmal effects which have taken the stage alongside Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures and Queens of The Stone Age

Says Gaffaney of the band’s sound, "It's about the sound of it, the power of it and the experimentation within it.”

Cairo Knife Fight’s music whips up a melodic storm of riff-fired power that takes your mind, body and soul on a hallucinatory rock 'n' roll ride. Think: Radiohead meets Kyuss meets Sigur Ros. The band’s vibe is just as alluring and forceful as their music, having booted down the back door of New York's influential CMJ music festival in 2010 to get themselves a gig and get noticed; and this year they got the official invite to return.  In addition, not many bands can claim to have been personally invited to support the Foo Fighters twice in a year -- Cairo Knife Fight opened for the Foo Fighters at the band's special Christchurch Earthquake benefit show in March 2011 at the Auckland Town Hall and will again in mid-December at Western Springs.

Their 2012 debut appearance at SXSW in Austin, TX marks a milestone in the band’s career as they are officially invited to hypnotize the audience of one of the most prominent music festivals on US soil with their epic, hallucinatory rock ‘n’ roll sound. Get to know Cairo Knife Fight’s gritty, mesmerizing music and be prepared for their mosh-inducing live performances as they bring their heralded sound from down under to the US.
