Michael Knott (and those that work with him) are always talking about upcoming projects. This page is an attempt to capture those projects that will most likely get released at some point in the future. Please see the unreleased page for past projects that were announced or discussed, but that never saw the light of day. All details below are subject to change based on what is released.
Michael Knott & Rick McDonough – Strip Cycle II
On November 13, 2019, Knott posted a video of himself and Rick McDonough recording a new song (possibly called “She’s a Winner”?) that they say will be on a new album they are working on called Strip Cycle II.
Michael Knott Vinyl Releases
Various record labels have indicated the desire to release many Knott classics, including Rocket and a Bomb, Screaming Brittle Siren, and Shaded Pain. Some, if not all, of these may soon see the light of day.
Fear Knott: The Music & Message of a Rock ‘N’ Roll Chameleon
David Di Sabatino, the producer behind Fallen Angel: The Outlaw Larry Norman and Frisbee: The Life and Death of a Hippie Preacher, has officially began working on a documentary about Michael Knott. Knott and many people that have worked with him in various bands and projects have already been interviewed for the project. No other details, themes, or release dates have been announced, but this is currently an active project that most likely will happen before too long.
Michael Knott – Pennies for Stormie Lane
This is set to be Mike’s first piano-based album. The original plan was that Mike would record piano and vocal for an album’s worth of material dedicated to his daughter, and that the production would be completed at Jeff Elbel’s studio with other musicians. After a long hiatus, work has commenced on this album and we will probably see it released soon-ish.
Michael Knott – Even Star
Even Star is an upcoming solo project by Michael Knott. One song from the project has been released as a demo. According to Down the Line magazine:”Even Star will hopefully come out sometime before Christmas.” Michael explains it, “This record is a trip, it’s not super heavy, it’s kind of light as far as the mix and the tones. There are some really cool songs on it.” This album was inspired by Liv Tyler’s character in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and as Michael relates, “It’s not like I’m really in to that kind of stuff, but I was in to her character, so I decided to do a whole record about it. It’s real interesting because it starts to change in to this spiritual thing as well, one where God is involved. It’s a whole different angle, but it’s a trippy record.”

Possible songs titles so far:
Struck Last May – 2nd album
A MySpace bulletin announced that a second Struck Last May album is in the works, and should be out by early 2009. It has since been delayed.”Struck Last May is a two-person experimental conceptually based project laid upon the foundation of guitars and samples, directed by the orchestration of emotion.” (from the Struck Last May MySpace page)
