Song Review: “Gone” by Knuckle Puck

After gaining a lot of fans with Copacetic, Knuckle Puck is back with a new single that was released yesterday and publicized through social media. “Gone” is the first single that is released off of Knuckle Puck’s sophomore album Shapeshifter which is set to release on Oct. 13 via. Rise Records. You can pre-order their upcoming album and receive “Gone” instantly on their website.

“Gone” is what I expected Knuckle Puck to release. Instrumentally, Knuckle Puck has a distinct sound that has drums, guitars, and bass full of angst with a high speed sound. Lyrically, this song is fantastic. Knuckle Puck is great at telling stories through their lyrics, and this song does a great job with it. The lyrics are somber and pull at your heart strings in the right way. The hook of “There’s no way back, there’s no way back” sounds similar to the line “You tore me down, you tore me down” in Knuckle Puck’s song “Untitled” (off of Copacetic.) This single sure does not disappoint.

If you have yet to hear their music, I highly recommend hearing their first full length album Copacetic, 2015. My favorite songs off of the album are: “Evergreen,” “In Your Crosshairs,” and “Untitled.” Knuckle Puck does a great job with creating high intensity songs and power ballads. I’m excited to see what Knuckle Puck has in store for their upcoming album.

In other news, The Killers teased a new song “Run For Cover,” Turnover released their new single “Sunshine Type,” August Burns Red released “Invisible Enemy,” Brendon Urie, Oli Sykes, and more are shown in the new music video, “Boys“, by Charlie XCX. and happy 15 year anniversary to My Chemical Romance’s I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, and happy 12th anniversary to Paramore’s first album All We Know is Falling.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
