Hear KNOCKED LOOSE's new warning shot "Don't Reach for Me"

Latest single may be the "meanest song" they've ever written

One month out from the arrival of Knocked Loose's next album, You Won't Go Before You're Supposed to, the Kentucky wrecking crew are hitting out with another punishing pre-release single. Described by frontman Bryan Garris as "the meanest song I've ever written," it's an all-volume warning shot titled "Don't Reach for Me."

The new single works through a blur of spine-compounding motifs, from gum-soled mosh-bounding and warp-speed blasting, to a thick-as-tar backend breakdown. Through it all, Garris is firing off a series of high-pitched howls about not messing with him or his family.

The metallic missive, the singer explained in a press statement, is about "someone who tried their hardest to come into my life and mess with two out of the three closest people I have."

The video, meanwhile, finds the band holed up in a church, and hunting down an enemy while armed with cinder blocks, hanging nooses, axes and baseball bats. You can see the plaster-shivving, glass-smashing results from inside the holy house in the player up above.

As previously reported, You Won't Go Before You're Supposed to is Knocked Loose's first full-length since 2019's A Different Shade of Blue. The album features guest appearances from Motionless in White frontman Chris Motionless and post-everything performer Poppy, and arrives May 10th through Pure Noise Records.
