Black Note Graffiti, the outspoken Ann Arbor, MI. Rock band, have proven themselves once again to be a strong force in the music world with their crunchy guitar riffs and intense vocals. Their new single, “Knights” off of their forthcoming EP Rise Volume III, is no exception.
Black Note Graffiti is Gabrielle Bryant (vocals/keys), Kris Keller (guitar/vocals), Kurt Keller (drums), Ricardo Ortiz (vocals/guitar), and Adam Nine (bass). Ortiz says, "Knights runs two simultaneous themes conflicting both within themselves and to that which is greater: systematic oppression and toxic masculinity. With systematic oppression, we have a culture that only now recognizes the inherent imbalance of class that has been sewn into the fabric of our society. Concerning toxic masculinity, one can sometimes get lost in trying to “save” someone you love who is in a tough situation when you should just be there on their terms. Both require introspection, change of action, and empathy, not pity. Ultimately, Knights are about showing some fucking compassion." "Knights" was produced by Grammy Award-winning Producer/Engineer Chuck Alkazian (Pop Evil, Soundgarden, Tantric) at legendary Pearl Sound Studios (Asking Alexandria, Eminem, Filter).
