Read "Chapters" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

Chapters—the title of Kneebody's 2019 release—has a certain appropriateness, as it definitely marks several new ones for the band. One being that lyric-oriented songs account for nearly half of the material on the album. Technically, vocals are nothing new to Kneebody. The band included one track with vocals on their 2002 proto-Kneebody album Wendel. Its 2009 ...

Kneebody: Anti-Hero

Read "Anti-Hero" reviewed by Mike Jacobs
