Year Of The Knife Premiere New Song “Sick Statistic”

Year Of The Knife have premiered a new song titled “Sick Statistic.” This track was recorded for a new split 12″ that was put together for the Pure Noise Tour. In addition to Year Of The Knife, that trek will feature Stick To Your Guns, Counterparts, Terror, and Sanction. Year Of The Knife’s Madi Watkins had the following to say about the new song:

“‘Sick Statistic‘ is one of our most personal songs to date. The weight of the lyrics are matched only by the intensity of it’s instrumentation. Lyrically, it represents true hopelessness and the seemingly unbreakable patterns of self-destruction that accompany it.”
