Knuckle Puck, ‘While I Stay Secluded’ EP premiere

October 23 2014, 10:34 AM EDT By Matt Crane


It’s been a big year for Chicago’s Knuckle Puck: They’ve toured with Senses Fail, put out a split with Neck Deep, released their first music video—and saw their fanbase swell in the process. With their new EP, While I Stay Secluded, the band take another step closer to becoming one of the dominant forces in pop-punk. The raspy, angsty vocals of Joe Taylor protest over sweeping guitars on songs like “But Why Would You Care?” and “Oak Street.” Stream the EP in full below, and let us know your thoughts.

While I Stay Secluded comes out October 28 on Bad Timing Records. Pre-orders are on sale now. You can catch the band on tour with Modern Baseball this fall/winter. (See the dates below the stream.)
