As many of our fans and close friends know, we have been lying low over the past couple of months with shows and recently have not been as active. However just because we have not been rocking the stage doesn’t mean we haven’t been hard at work. Over the months that have passed by we have been working out an elaborate piece artwork. Something we consider to be very beautiful. Something we are truly proud of. We think you would be too. Yes, we have been composing our sophomore album, titled “Turning the Triad”. Our new concept “Turning the Triad” is going to be released at 10th Street Live in Kenilworth NJ on August 11th, 2012. We want ALL of you there to celebrate with us what we have created. We will reveal plenty more details regarding “Turning the Triad” and everything involving it soon. We thank you all so much.
Oh, and by the way, you should get very, excited for new sounds. Big things are coming.

Hello everyone! It has been some time since the last blog entry, the reason for that is we have been that much more busy with the band and all the work that we have been doing with our music. A lot has happened since the last entry, as most of you probably already know, the band has released our debut album "Who Gives a Hoot" and is now available for purchase! Since the release show November 20th, 2010, the band took a few weeks off from playing shows for many reasons, but the main reason we took some time off was to begin rehearsing our music with our newest member Ronnie, who is now our drummer. We are very pleased with our new line up, and we are guaranteed you will be as well. Some upcoming shows that are coming up are:
January 8th, Saturday night, at Architekt Music located in Butler NJ. Architekt is a brand new music venue that just opened up back in early October. Although it just opened it has already built a big name for itself. It is going to be a very cool show and one certainly not to miss out on. Tickets can be bought in advance from any band member for $10, or at the door the night of the show for $10 as well.
January 20th, Thursday night, at The Crossroads located in Garwood NJ. The Crossroads is a very well known venue that is always a great place to be for great live music, great food, and certainly a great time. The band will be returning to The Crossroads for the first time after our album release show. Tickets for the show can only be purchased at the door for $8.
February 5th, Saturday night, at The Backstage Coffeehouse located in Edison NJ. The Backstage is home to many local bands of NJ and is always a pleasure to check out shows at the venue. Tickets can purchased in advance from any band member for $8, or at the door for $10.
We hope that you can make it to all of these upcoming shows! More shows will be posted as soon as possible. Make sure you "like" and check our facebook page for all updates as well. http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Knight-Owls/139780649373042 Thanks again everyone! -M.C. -TKO
Hello Knight Owls fans! This is a very late update with what is happening with the band, if you can't guess, the band has been very busy between booking shows and getting our album out and on sale for fans to purchase. Lets start with shows. The band has recently just played 2 shows, 1 of which was at The Crossroads in Garwood, a very nice place for people to hear good music and eat good food, and the other was a guest spot at The Knights Of Columbus' (Woodbridge, NJ)Halloween party. Both were very productive and a great time for the band and the fans! We will be back at The Crossroads at a date TBA in the future. Coming up we will be playing The Stone Pony once again, although this time its not just a straight forward showcase, it is a Original Band Competition. 5 Bands will play, and 1 will advance to a final show to play, the winner of that show will receive many rewards provided by the venue. So please come out to see us and support us November 11th at The Stone Pony! Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Another gig booked a little farther away in time is at Architekt Live! A new venue located in Butler NJ. We will be playing there Saturday night, January 8th. Trust us, its going to be worth the ride there! Now, our upcoming album, "Who Gives a Hoot" is just a matter of days from being completely ready to go on sale. When we will put it up for sale on Reverbnation, our Big Cartel page ( http://theknightowls.bigcartel.com/ ), and in person of course is still to be determined. More than likely we will look at our schedule and find the closest date we are playing, in relation to when we want to release it (Sooner rather than later) and make our decision based off of that. So that is all for now, but there is certainly a lot more to come! -T.K.O. -M.C.

However we will keep you updated on whats happening with that on a regular basis! Thats about it for now, more gigs are booked and on the horizon but we wont bother you with that now.

Hello everyone, so lately what we have been up to is recording and we are very near to finishing our LP. The album should be finished by hopefully mid August to late August. Some tracks from the album will be going up soon on our page here on ReverbNation. As we are coming very close to that, we have taken a little bit of a break from the studio and are getting our live material very tight and are in the process of finding some gigs in the near future, its most certainly on our agenda. Stay tuned for more news to come soon. Also come and "like" the band on our facebook page. Thanks.
