Cairo Knife Fight sign with Golden Robot Records

Author Benedetta Baldin - 19.4.2024

Golden Robot Records are proud to announce the signing of internationally acclaimed band Cairo Knife Fight to its roster. Alongside this exciting news, the band reveals the release of their latest single titled Afterbias, set to drop on April 26, 2024.

Afterbias’ emerges as a poignant tribute and a profound musical journey. Lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Nick Gaffaney shares the inspiration behind the track, stating, “Afterbias is a riff I had kicking around for years and just couldn’t find a home for. Following the death of my first bandmate, Aaron Tokona, it took on a new life and seemed to be the right sound at the right time. Lyrically everything fell into place quickly and it can really be seen as a message to him, something I think he would’ve loved.”

The single carries a depth of emotion and significance, serving as an homage to Gaffaney’s late friend and collaborator. With profound lyrics that resonate with personal connection, Afterbias’ encapsulates a raw energy and an evocative narrative, inviting listeners into an immersive musical experience.

Recording Afterbias’ at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 was a dream realized for Cairo Knife Fight. Gaffaney reflects on the experience, expressing gratitude for the opportunity, “Having the chance to make that kind of statement about an old friend and putting it all together in an environment like Studio 606 was a dream come true and not something you get to do every day. I’ll always be grateful for that opportunity.”

Golden Robot Records is thrilled to welcome Cairo Knife Fight to its esteemed family of artists. Known for their innovative sound and electrifying performances, Cairo Knife Fight brings a unique blend of musical prowess and emotional resonance to the label’s repertoire.

Gary Poole, the band’s manager, says, “It’s especially rare these days to find a label that actually cares about the music and the artist as opposed to social media numbers. Mark Alexander-Erber ONLY cares about the music and the artist. We’re grateful he was a huge fan of our band, and went out of his way to find us! We look forward to a long, successful run with Golden Robot Records and the incredible team Mark has assembled there.”

With its official launch slated for April 26, 2024, Afterbias’ promises to captivate audiences worldwide with its compelling narrative and infectious melodies.

Cairo Knife Fight is redefining what two musicians can create live, slaying audiences across the globe with their beautiful, yet raw and primal uniqueness. Formed in New Zealand, and now splitting their time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Cairo Knife Fight is:

Nick Gaffaney on lead vocals, drums and keyboard bass (all at the same damn time)


George Pajon Jr. (Grammy winning guitarist for some of the biggest names in the business: Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, Carlos Santana, Macy Gray, John Legend, Nas and Sting, just to name a few) creating seemingly limitless guitar soundscapes and incendiary riffs.

The band’s incorporation of various loops and live treatments defies believability and pushes the limits of what two musicians can do on one stage.
