Mr. Smalls Theatre on October 30.

Knocked Loose is touring in support of their highly acclaimed new album, ‘A Different Shade of Blue’ which debuted #1 at Current Rock, Current Hard Rock, LP Vinyl Albums and Independent Record Label Current Albums this week.

The new record is INSANE.. a true melting pot of ideas, approaches and styles. The very young heavy-hitters Knocked Loose have taken hardcore / metal / punk scenes by storm in just a couple years. Hailing from Oldham County, KY, they’ve changed the genre as we know it & have garnered a massive, dedicated fanbase across genres & generations along the way.

A Different Shade of Blue, Knocked Loose’s mammoth of a sophomore effort and huge step forward for hardcore and metal as we know it, sees the young band leap from upstart hardcore-influenced favorites to bonafide key figures of the genre.

Forged on musical bonds built at an early age, Knocked Loose came together in the small yet relatively formidable hardcore and punk scene of the greater Louisville, Kentucky area. Though the scene was relatively strong, a lack of available bands, touring parties and scarcity of gigs forced diversity – mixing genres and challenging young ears with new ideas, approaches and styles. That diversity­ created the basis of Knocked Loose musically and the genesis for their approach, an amalgam of heavy influences that never commits to any singular style but maintains a loyalty to the hardcore tradition.

Clocking in at a lean and mean 37 minutes, A Different Shade of Blue grabs the listener by the throat from the jump and slowly tightening that grip for the duration. Knocked Loose continues to tour relentlessly. They hit the road this fall on their headlining North American tour with Rotting Out, Candy and SeeYouSpaceCowboy. See below for all dates.
