Knocked Loose, a hardcore band from Oldham County, is a force in the heavy music scene, combining deep and thoughtful subject material with visceral, primal and captivating vocals and musicianship. 

On the front end of an extensive international tour — that features a stop at Bonnaroo on Friday — Knocked Loose has released some brand-new music this week. 

The Upon Loss singles — “Deep in the Willow” / “Everything is Quiet Now” — are currently streaming on major platforms such as Spotify, and an accompanying cinematic music video directed by Eric Richter and Knocked Loose frontman/vocalist Bryan Garris is also out.

The Upon Loss singles are the band’s first new releases since the 2021 EP, A Tear in the Fabric of Life. A run of special edition Upon Loss vinyl options have already sold out. 

In a press release, Garris reflected on the meaning of the new songs and how the band approached the creation of the new music video. 

“‘Deep in the Willow’ and ‘Everything is Quiet Now’ are a reminder that we are heavy, intense, and extreme,” Garris said in the release. “Some elements come and go, but those will never change. After A Tear in the Fabric of Life we were inspired to see how much art we could incorporate moving forward — which led us to a style of video we’ve never attempted or approached. Taking myself specifically far outside of my comfort zone and pushing the boundaries on how I’ve been seen in the past was a creative experience I will never forget.”
