Malaysian punk rock band, Trophy Knives just released a music video for ‘Last Known Residence’ on 19th April through Skesh Entertainment’s YouTube channel. Taken from their brand new EP ‘Turmoil’, the music video was directed and produced by Nadeem A. Salam of Skesh Entertainment. The music video was also edited by Sam Shapiro who is famously known for his work with Stone Sour, Underoath, Stick to Your Guns and many other amazing bands.

Trophy Knives have been around for quite some time, under different names. Wired Nerves, with Thanesh Muniandy displayed impressive charisma together with his brother and probably the head honcho of the current lineup, Vinesh. With Trophy Knives, the band sounds grittier to the teeth, and showcased a form of raw punk Malaysians can warm up to.
