Metalcore up-and-comers Knocked Loose have always been very outspoken about tackling heavy societal issues and they’re putting their position to good use with a new merch item.
The band are releasing a new limited-edition shirt with proceeds going to help survivors of domestic abuse to coincide with Domestic Violence Awareness month.
The Kentucky heavy hitters are donating everything they receive from the shirt to their hometown’s Center for Women and Families.
“Every year, over 12 million women and men are victims of domestic violence,” the band say. “For a very limited time (until 10/29) we will have these shirts for preorder on our website – a reminder that there are survivors and victims with voices that need to be heard. All proceeds will be donated to help survivors of domestic abuse at Kentucky’s Center for Women and Families in memory of Tiffany Tomerlin. #Lovedoesnthurt.”

More on Knocked Loose
We spoke with vocalist Bryan Garris about their new record, A Different Shade Of Blue, when the album was arriving back in the summer. Garris revealed that as much as he enjoys playing in the band, he dreads the recording process.
“As the vocalist, I’m the final piece of the puzzle when it comes to recording. Everybody in the band is like, ‘OK, we did it. Now it’s your turn.’ It’s putting your voice under a microscope where everybody can hear your imperfections. If my voice wasn’t where I wanted it to be, I wouldn’t record. Some days, after I’d be getting ready, Will would press ‘record,’ and I’d scream once, and I’d be like, ‘Nope. See you tomorrow.’”
