Knocked Loose: From Hardcore Heroes to Unlikely Heavyweights

Dive into the world of Knocked Loose, the Kentucky hardcore crew making waves in both the underground scene and the mainstream spotlight. Despite their viral success on TikTok and endorsements from the likes of Demi Lovato and Billie Eilish, Knocked Loose remains unapologetically heavy with their latest album, “You Won’t Go Before You’re Supposed To.”

In the realm of hardcore music, Knocked Loose stands out for their unique blend of ferocity and innovation. Frontman Bryan Garris’s distinctively high-pitched vocals cut through the chaos with crystal-clear enunciation, adding a visceral intensity to their sound. Producer Drew Fulk’s meticulous attention to detail ensures that each track packs a punch, delivering a sonic onslaught that reverberates like a jet plane inside your skull.

But what sets Knocked Loose apart is their refusal to conform to expectations. While other bands might seize the opportunity to soften their edges and court mainstream appeal, Knocked Loose doubles down on their aggressive sound, crafting their heaviest and most punishing album to date. From the frenetic chaos of “Suffocate,” featuring guest vocals from Poppy, to the haunting intensity of “Blinding Faith,” each track is a relentless onslaught of sonic fury.

Despite their underground roots, Knocked Loose is poised to make a seismic impact on the mainstream music scene. With their uncompromising approach and unwavering dedication to their craft, they are set to shake the foundations of the industry and redefine what it means to be heavy. So, as the mainstream braces itself for the impending storm, one thing is clear: Knocked Loose is about to unleash a revolution, and the world won’t know what hit it.
