On the eve of Pennsylvanian Nu-Core band TALLAH's breakout release, the band has announced plans to perform the highly anticipated record, "Matriphagy," in it's entirety for the first time on Thursday at KNOTFEST.COM. The performance was previously recorded at the haunted Willow Glen State Penitentiary, AKA "Prison of the Dead," in Reading, PA and was filmed by hate5six (CODE ORANGE, SICK OF IT ALL).

Commenting on the impending live set, vocalist Justin Bonitz says:
”This is Tallah getting even closer to our final form. With the pandemic happening, it is unlikely we will get to play live any time soon, so we have all this pent up energy and unfulfilled desire--artists and fans alike. Let this serve as a temporary cure for the itch.”
Director hate5six adds:
“I’d like to think I have my finger on the pulse of what’s fresh, but seeing Tallah live had me questioning if I’m slipping. As you’ll see in this set, they came out of the gate hard and didn’t relent. It left me wondering where the fuck they came from,” says hate5six. “Tallah convolves 90s nu-metal vibes with the adrenaline rush of a chaotic hardcore band, yielding something that feels relevant rather than dated. Filming this set was actually the first time I heard the band, which was intentional because when a band’s live performance inspires me it leads to a more organic and authentic video, one that is driven by heightened senses rather than stale choreography. If this set is also your first time hearing Tallah, sit back and let it consume you.”
Leading up to Friday's album release, TALLAH recently debuted a CROSSFAITH remix of their song, "Overconfidence." Stream it here:.

“Creepy, hyper-kinetic and unhinged… A simultaneous love for modern metallic hardcore leaders like Code Orange, Vein and Candy and Nu Metal era favourites like Slipknot, Korn and Linkin Park”
"Tallah is chaos! A total trip, it fits right in with modern metal titans like Code Orange, Vein and Candy."
