Of course, Knocked Loose have never shied away from tackling important issues, with frontman Bryan Garris unveiling his most personal lyrics to date in new album A Different Shade Of Blue.
“I think I’m always going to use lyrics as personal expression and to get things off my chest – it’s very therapeutic,” he told Kerrang! earlier in the year. “Throughout the Laugh Tracks cycle, when I started doing interviews, it was something that I had to get used to – having people that I don’t know asking me very personal questions. I don’t really like talking about super-personal things in interviews, so I try to keep that within my lyrics. That made it even more personal, I guess, because it’s even more private.”
When asked about if he ever felt nervous in opening up, knowing that Knocked Loose now have more listeners than ever, he responded: “Sometimes I’m lucky enough to have somebody find me at a show and tell me that my lyrics have helped them in some way, and that means the world to me. It’s amazing, and I always hope that I can provide that service for somebody. But for me personally, it’s been a weird thing to accept, knowing that a lot of people that I don’t know are going to know all these things about me.”
