"WHK Unsigned Bands Feature"

Good thing vocalist Joseph Olivio won enough money to pay his rent when he bailed on his first rehearsal with guitarists Ryan Aldrich and Paul Sommers in favor of a poker game. "Ryan was all pissed when he blew off the practice, but I was able to convince him to give Joe another shot," says Summers. "After all, paying the rent playing poker is better then working a straight job any day in my book." - Alternative Press July 2007


Self Titled EP Released March 2007.

Liars Make Good Lovers EP Released October 2007



Somewhere in the cold and windy Chicago night a new musical movement is gaining momentum. Smooth as silk yet tough as nails, White Hot Knife’s romantic sound is defined by thundering beats that are designed to capture and hypnotize. Chic bass driven melodies and angled patterns of fluttering guitar are bringing this sound to the forefront of the indie rock scene. White Hot Knife has emerged from the ashes of former hardcore and electronic projects to create a sound that blends eroticism with dark pop elements in a way never seen before.

Backed by the bruised and bloody guitars of Paul Summers and Ryan Aldrich, Joe Olivio’s vocals are a siren of warning carefully aimed at the heart. The rhythm section comprised of Collin Patrick and Ken Boksa roars steadily as White Hot Knife etches it’s signature sound into the mind of each new listener they encounter.

According to Unrated Magazine, the band “has been growing from day one, and makes sure that each song is an effort toward creating something distinctive”. Threadless.com recognizes the bands talent, and thinks the new EP “is truly something special!”. Q101, WXRT, WLUW and WNUR have all embraced WHK, featuring their tracks on air. Alternative Press has also given WHK the nod, showcasing them in their July 07 issue.

With every performance, the crowds swell larger and larger; dedicated fans and curious new listeners alike. Get ready to march to the beat of your own funeral drum, White Hot Knife is here.
