NEW ALBUM ‘LOSING WHAT WE LOVE’ OUT 20TH OCTOBER 2023 ON PURE NOISE RECORDS.

Knuckle Puck, one of the most celebrated acts in the modern pop-punk scene recently announced their new album ‘Losing What We Love’ to be released 20th October 2023 and now we are treated to the title track off the record. Over the last thirteen years the band have nurtured their craft across three albums and have artfully balanced their emotional spectrum, trading in high-tempered and deeply introspective lyricism, but also cutting the tension with an underlying layer of optimism. But now, with the release of their fourth LP, Knuckle Puck are done sugarcoating life’s hard truths. It is a record about coming to terms with exactly that. It is an attempt to lean into the transition between a high point in life to a low point. These songs are a tribute to the familiar while acknowledging that nothing can stay the same forever. Recorded with longtime producer Seth Henderson (State Champs, Real Friends), album follows 2022’s ‘Disposable Life’ EP and marks the band’s first LP for Pure Noise Records. In many ways, it’s a throwback to their earliest days – not necessarily in sound, but in songwriting essence, tapping into the same collaborative magic they found in bedrooms and garages across Chicago’s south suburbs as teenagers.

‘Losing What We Love’ (the song) sways between clinging on to what was and letting go completely. If you choose your company wisely, you can allow yourself to give away all that you have to offer without hesitation or fear.” says the band. It’s clear there’s a newfound energy inside their ranks, a steadfast belief in one another that steered the ship during ‘Losing What We Love’ and will carry the band long into the future. In many ways, it’s the same spirit of unity that bonds their fervent crowds – the ones that pack sweaty clubs around the world to sing and scream along with Taylor and Casasanto’s impassioned vocals. And even if they’re not cut with as much lyrical optimism this time around, the sheer power and honesty of Knuckle Puck’s songs on LP4 will still give audiences a rallying cry around which to gather in transformative moments of community.
