Knuckle Puck have announced a new album, Losing What We Love, arriving Oct. 20 via Pure Noise (preorder). The band say that the record, and especially new single “The Tower,” take on a darker tone than Knuckle Puck fans may be used to hearing.

“For a long time, we felt a responsibility to have this overwhelming hopefulness to our lyrics,” guitarist and co-lead singer Nick Casasanto says. “This time around, we started writing more honestly with less intent to sound cool or hopeful. It feels like we’re in a bit of a losing battle with the state of the world, but in the past, we’d say, ‘Oh, but it’s all OK!’ Now we’re saying, ‘No, we should be panicking.’ This record feels like more of an expression than a motivational speech.”

“‘The Tower’ is a song about welcoming the inevitability of death, destruction, and chaos,” the band add. “The world is bleak right now, and this song is a reflection of that. It shows a darker side of our band than what we have let people see in recent years, which was a big reason for choosing it as a single.”

Get a taste of this darker Knuckle Puck by listening to “The Tower” and watching the video below. The album also includes “Groundhog Day,” which came out last fall, and you can stream that below, too.
