New-school hardcore leaders and Revolver cover stars Knocked Loose might be known for their ferocious mosh-pit anthems and unhinged live shows. But it turns out that the Kentucky-based heavy hitters have bigger goals in mind than just decimating the stage night after night. 

In October, the band made a statement on social media that addressed Domestic Violence Awareness month and cited a statistic stating that over 12 million people are victims of such crimes each year. "For a very limited time," they captioned a photo of a special T-shirt featuring their logo, "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." 

The pre-order was a huge success, and Knocked Loose kicked off 2020 with a celebratory announcement revealing what they were able to do through the fundraiser. "First post of the new year and we would like to announce that we were finally able to donate the check to The Center for Women and Families!" they told fans via Facebook. "I am completely blown away by how well our community came together for such an amazing cause. Almost $10,000 raised ... This blew our expectations out of the water. We are so grateful for any and every one that helped by purchasing or sharing the post, you helped spread awareness on a topic that often is forgotten and it will impact so many. From every single one of us, thank you!" See the post below.
