The Dreijer siblings begin their 20th anniversary celebrations this week

The Knife are making plans to mark their 20th anniversary.

Tomorrow (August 14) marks 20 years to the day since the duo put out their first record, a 7" vinyl on their own Rabid Records label featuring the tracks 'Afraid Of You' and 'Bird'. To commemorate the anniversary, they will launch a Bandcamp page for Rabid, which will include some previously unreleased music.

Featured on the page will be The Knife: Live At Terminal 5, a live album of a 2014 show the duo played at New York venue Terminal 5, which will be available on physical and digital formats in the UK for the first time. Their soundtrack to the 2003 Swedish thriller Hannah Med H will also be released digitally for the first time.

In addition to catalogue releases and previously unreleased The Knife material, Rabid's Bandcamp page will also host past solo releases from the pair's respective solo projects, including Karin Dreijer's work as Fever Ray.

As well as the digital releases, the pair have reissued 2005 record Pass This On on 7" vinyl, and released CD/DVD and LP/DVD editions of The Knife: Live At Terminal 5. Those releases can be found at Rabid's web store, while an event to mark the anniversary is in the works for later this year.

Rabid Records' Bandcamp page will be live from August 14, 2020.
