Knocked Loose Premiere Mosh-Fueling New Song, Announce New Album

Knocked Loose, 2019
Published on:

Fast-rising Kentucky hardcore crew Knocked Loose have announced their hotly anticipated second album, A Different Shade of Blue — the follow-up to 2006’s Laugh Tracks — which is due August 23rd via Pure Noise Records (pre-orders are available here now). The quintet have also unleashed the LP’s official lead single, “…And Still I Wander South,” which follows April’s first taste from the album, “Mistakes Like Fractures.” According to singer Bryan Garris, the new song “is about wanting to move on, or better yourself for whatever reason, but you keep going back to the same old thing. Whether that be depression or whatever you may be going through. You always wander back to the same mindset.”

Every Time I Die and the Damned Things vocalist Keith Buckley makes a guest appearance on the LP’s “Forget Your Name.” See the full track listing and album cover below, as well as Knocked Loose’s full slate of tour dates.
