The Mountain Goats are in superb form on their 19th studio album.

On the first of March, 2020, John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, Matt Douglas, and Jon Wurster, aka the Mountain Goats band, visited legendary studio Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, TN.

+ Indies only vinyl is on metallic gold vinyl in gatefold sleeve and download.

+ Standard black vinyl is also gatefold with a download.

+ CD digi with + 16 page booklet

Darnielle armed his band with new songs and reunited with producer Matt Ross-Spang who engineered last year’s In League with Dragons. In the same room where the Cramps tracked their 1980 debut album, the Mountain Goats spent a week capturing the magic of a band at the top of its game. The result is Getting Into Knives, the perfect album for the millions of us who have spent many idle hours contemplating whether we ought to be honest with ourselves and just get massively into knives.

"Getting Into Knives" includes guest performance on Hammond B-3 organ by Charles Hodges (of numerous Al Green records) & guest performance on guitar by Chris Boerner (of the Hiss Golden Messenger band).

In addition to Mountain Goats, John Darnielle is an American author whose debut novel, 'Wolf in White Van', was New York Times Best-Seller and National Book award nominee.
