ALONGSIDE ANIMATED SHORT FILM: ‘A TEAR IN THE FABRIC OF LIFE’ CREATED BY MAGNUS JONSSON, STORY BY BRYAN GARRIS. EXTENSIVE TOUR IN EUROPE IN FEBRUARY 2022.

Knocked Loose have released their stunning and visionary new EP in full – ‘A Tear In The Fabric Of Life’. It’s their most dynamic and contained offering to date, and a balancing act: a mid-length EP with grand ambitions and scope, one full of new sonic elements and a cohesive aesthetic that hangs onto Knocked Loose’s trademark anthemic delivery.‘A Tear In The Fabric Of Life’ is a story written by Knocked Loose frontman/lyricist Bryan Garris and comes to life within an extraordinary animated film directed and created by Swedish filmmaker Magnus Jonsson, who is known for his visual curiosity and often exploring dark themes, in abstract and surreal worlds. So too with ‘A Tear In The Fabric Of Life’, which is a massive progression, but not a departure. The end result feels like a stress test: six songs that speak to each other in a language that’s equal parts Phil Spector and death metal and that balance the tension between technical mastery and catchiness. This is Knocked Loose, distilled, and taking a leap. ‘A Tear In The Fabric Of Life’ was recorded and produced by Will Putney. The EP expands on the narratives hinted at on ‘A Different Shade Of Blue’, their highly lauded 2019 full-length that cemented them as one of heavy music’s most prominent acts. With quarantine upending their extensive touring schedule — “we’ve kind of been consistently on the road since 2014,” says Garris — the group found themselves in early 2020 sequestered near their hometown of Louisville, in Oldham County, Kentucky. By June, they were hunkered down in a cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, focused on writing a concept album. By the end of September they had finished recording. Last week Knocked Loose wrapped up a massive, sold out headlining tour and will continue onwards this week in support of Gojira. Kentucky hardcore crew Knocked Loose and Los Angeles beatdown veterans Terror are teaming up for extensive tour of the UK and Europe in February 2022.
