Speaking of the album, the band just so happen to be dropping the album the same day pop giant Taylor Swift will release her next album, Lover.

Knocked Loose vocalist Bryan Garris took notice of this, and had some words for the pop star.

“Hey @taylorswift13 , big fan. Looks like we (@knockedloose ) are releasing an album on the same day this year… August 23rd. Let’s see who sells more first week. Good luck,” he wrote.

Garris then clarified it was a joke, and promoted his album.

There were definitely some Swifties in the replies who were not happy with the tweet, but we think the entire thing is hilarious. We’re all just waiting on that response from Swift to see if she’s up for the challenge.

The band previously unveiled the lead single from the album, a cathartic new jam titled “…And Still I Wander South.”

Recorded by producer Will Putney, Knocked Loose recorded 12 anger-filled tracks and created what 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!
