Isaac Hale from Knocked Loose talks KNOTFEST

Perri Leigh

Bruised and bloodied, Knocked Loose open the pit with a brutal sound that falls between hardcore punk and metalcore. The Kentucky quartet released their stunning and visionary conceptual six-song EP A Tear in the Fabric of Life in 2021 about grief and isolation that was accompanied by a short, animated film created by Swedish filmmaker Magnus Jonsson. 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 and have toured consistently since it’s release. After their Australian visit, they’ll be hitting the stages of prestigious festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Welcome To Rockville and Bloodstock to name a few.

The Everblack Podcast spoke to KNOCKED LOOSE guitarist Isaac Hale about their upcoming appearance at Knotfest Australia, latest album ‘A Tear in the Fabric of Life’, bands 10 year anniversary and their brotherhood, future plans and more!
