Interpol offshoot Muzz share “Knuckleduster” from debut LP (that’s out next week)
Muzz, the trio of Paul Banks (Interpol), Josh Kaufman (Bonny LIght Horseman) and Matt Barrick (The Walkmen), will release their self-titled debut album next week (June 5) via Matador. Here's one more taste before the whole thing drops. Where "Bad Feeling," "Broken Tambourine" and "Trinidad" have all been on the somber side, "Knuckleduster" is the closest to a Interpol-style rock song we've heard yet, more in the vein of "Red Western Sky" and the connection between the two songs continues with its video. “While we were shooting the video for ‘Red Western Sky,’ we discovered this great space underneath the museum," says Paul Banks. "Unplanned, we quickly set up and started filming again - capturing the video for ‘Knuckleduster’ on the same day. Hair was greener and times were simpler back then.”

Meanwhile, Muzz were interviewed by actor and occasional indie rocker Michael Shannon about their debut album. Shannon's weird, unique energy brings out some surprising and fun answers and you can watch the four parts of the interview that are out now -- with more still to come -- below.
