Recorded by producer Will Putney, Knocked Loose recorded 12 anger-filled tracks and created what vocalist Bryan Garris believes to be some of his most intensely personal lyrics to date.

Garris explains that the album’s lead single “is about wanting to move on, or better yourself for whatever reason, but you keep going back to the same old thing. Whether that be depression or whatever you may be going through. You always wander back to the same mindset.”

Check out the official music video for “…And Still I Wander South” below!

The full lyrics to the new single can be viewed below.

I spent so much time focused on the difference 
Eclipsed by the shadows of my past
Nothing will sustain
Nothing is built to last
There’s a hole in the dark 
Where the waters rest 
No waves in a grave
In a grave unkept 
As above so below 
Lost inside this hole 
My mouth is a drain
Where no water flows
A jaded infatuation 
Nothing more
I need lightning to strike in the same place twice
I cast out a prayer for wings
Anything to remove this vice
Trapped in my head
Where the waters rest
I’ve spent so much of my life 
Trying to get out
And still I wonder south 

A Different Shade of Blue is slated to drop on TKTKTK via Pure Noise Records Aug. 23.
