Success has followed THE KNOCKOUTS, stealing the trophy for the Best Punk Album at the American Independent Music Awards and with the single ‘A Lie Like In Natalie’, on high rotation on the national Swedish rock station BANDIT ROCK.
They have been on the biggest European rock festivals such as Peace & Love, Putte Parken, West Coast Riot, Azkena Rock Spain, and more…
The success of the Album, Among the Vultures, included massive tour schedules throughout Europe.
THE KNOCKOUTS were invited to open Brian Setzer’s (founder of the Stray Cats) Rockabilly Riot Tour. Joining them in gigs across Europe and Scandinavia ending with an EXPLOSION as THE KNOCKOUTS front man Johan Frandsen joined fellow Gretsch Guitars/ TV Jones endorsed artist, the legendary Stray Cats front man Brain Setzer and drummer Slim Jim on the stage for the encore performance at the Helsinki Ice Hall.
After long friendship with Slim Jim and Jonny Bowler (Guana Batz, Nick 13/Tiger Army), they did a guest appearance with THE KNOCKOUTS for one night only at Debaser Slussen, Stockholm. What a success!
THE KNOCKOUTS are world famous for their fantastic live shows.
Exceptional magic when phenomenal musicians join forces and share the stage to deliver their own brand of punchy rockabilly and razor sharp country punk.
THE KNOCKOUTS will record a new album within short time. Better than ever – Swedish dynamite at its best!
