Kenny: Eastern suburbs of Melbourne
Cindy: When did you guys get together?
Kenny: since July last year
Cindy: how did your band name "Know Exit" come about?
Kenny: We wanted a name that had a good meaning behind it, so one day we thought of the name ‘NO EXIT’ but decided to change the NO to a “KNOW”.
Know Exit basically means that we, as individuals aren’t just in the band to play for the sake of playing but to also see people changed through our music. We don’t want to make it sound like we are full on nuns or anything, we actually prefer that people don’t think that we are christians until they meet us and talk to us. Pat (drums) is actually an atheist so we don’t really want people to label us as a "christian" band, we are just normal guys that believe in something we feel is real. o to sum us up, KNOW EXIT means that we know that there is so much more and that there is a better way than what is happening in the world today.
