Oldham County’s very own Knocked Loose make their long-awaited return to the shores of Britain, bringing along with them the likes of Last Wishes, Static Dress and Terror. With their latest album “A Tear in the Fabric of Life” and a sold-out show this was a night not to be missed.
“A Tear in the Fabric of Life” album was met to fantastic reviews from critics and fans alike. Continuing with their signature dark and bitter sound alongside video game samples, car crash sound effects, and a point when the music drops out for a deadpan recitation of the title. Standing in the photo pit at Electric Ballroom I stood and waited, eagerly anticipating the arrival of these hardcorde legends as they invaded the stage to see how well their new material would hold up live.
Electric Ballroom is arguably one of London’s most iconic venues and has hosted some of the greatest shows with bands such as Enter Shikari taking to the stage. Saying that however, the likes of Electric Ballroom had their hands full tonight with an evening of Hardcore seeing the room split into two on multiple occasions and with crowdsurfers flying over my head throughout the set! Fans begin to spill into the main hall after the dust settles from Terror’s spectacular performance, leaving fans fuelled for tonight’s headline entertainment. As the fans eagerly await the distorted and dystopian intro to “Where Light Divides the Holler” sets the tone as Isaac Hale (Vocals) and the rest of the crew crash onto the stage.
Raw power, aggression and a whole lot of chaos, just the things you’d expect from Knocked Loose’s triumphant return to London. With a brand-new incredibly successful new album, and the energy to kick your face in the band proved once again that they are a force to be reckoned with. “A Tear in the Fabric of Life” proved to be a huge success for the band’s career, bringing fans out in force, leaving the walls of the Electric Ballroom packed to the brim with new and old fans alike. With no signs of slowing down and an upcoming performance at festivals across the UK this summer it’s fair to say that this isn’t the last time we’ll see the likes of Knocked Loose descend on London town
