Hardcore standouts Knocked Loose have announced their eagerly awaited follow up to their breakout full length release in 2019's A Different Shade of Blue with the confirmation of their next full length effort, You Won’t Go Before You’re Supposed To. The album is due out May 10th via Pure Noise Records and serves as the culmination of the Louisville collective's meteoric rise in recent years, pushing forward the sound, ethos and culture of hardcore. 

Enlisting the expertise of Grammy-nominated, genre flouting producer Drew “WZRD BLD” Fulk whose resume oscillates from from Lil Wayne, NLE Choppa and Kevin Gates to Motionless In White, Papa Roach and Disturbed, Knocked Loose have revisited the creative chemistry the pairing first achieved with the release of 2023 powerful preview in Upon Loss.  

Ratcheting up the band's most savage stylistic elements, You Won't Go Before You're Supposed To finds Knocked Loose amplifying their frenetic musical energy - manifested in gargantuan breakdowns and chaotic furies packaged into a 27-minute blitz of catharsis.

Guitarist Isaac Hale explained the band's creative headspace, “On this album, we go the fastest we've ever gone; we go the scariest we've ever gone. We also go the catchiest and the most melodic that we've ever gone, and that's the point,” emphasizes Hale. “Instead of branching off into a specific direction, we want to encompass ALL directions.”

Commencing the long-awaited album campaign, Knocked Loose have shared the caustic first single - one that aims pure hostility at the disingenuous and self-righteous in "Blinding Faith". Coupled with a captivating visual helmed by director Kevin Lombardo, Knocked Loose delivers their signature music assault with well-rationalized confrontation. 

Hale offered some insight on how the track reflects on his earlier years attending services with his family and noticing obvious inconsistencies some people in the congregation, “It was just hilarious how many people showed up to church that I knew were rude, horrible, selfish people. They knew that it made them seem like a better person — or if they said the words, it would redeem them of any negative quality just because they showed face.” 

Coupled with the arrival of You Won't Go Before You're Supposed To, Knocked Loose is set to embark on one of the most anticipated tours of the year. Teaming with Show Me The Body, Loathe and Speed, Knocked Loose will headline a North American run that has already sold out in a majority of the cities on the itinerary. 

Bookended by an appearance at Sick New World in Las Vegas on April 27th, along with a finale in St. Petersburg, FL., Knocked Loose have solidified their position as one heavy music's most in-demand units. See dates and cities below. Get tickets - HERE
