Knuckle Puck Drop New Music Video, Fall Tour Dates


Knuckle Puck is giving fans a lot of good news for a Monday.

To begin, the Chicago-based band has released the music video for one of the track off of their new album Copacetic, “True Contrite.”

When asked by Billboard, who exclusively premiered the music video earlier in the day, about how the music video was made, guitarist Kevin Maida revealed that it was a painstaking process, but well worth it in the end.

“The making of the ‘True Contrite’ music video was one of the most painstaking, rewarding experiences ever,” said Maida.

“We basically had to shoot two music videos, one with the walls blank, then manually tape all the Polaroids to the wall, and then shoot everything again with all the Polaroids on the wall. It took a long time, but the video came out perfect.”

Check out the group’s “perfect” video for “True Contrite” below.

In addition to the new music video, the band has also announced a month and a half long tour in the Fall in support of Copacetic which was released on July 31 through Rise Records. Heading on the road alongside them will be Seaway, Sorority Noise, and Head North.

“When putting together a lineup for the headline, it was basically a no-brainer to have Seaway on it,” explained Maida about the lineup for the group’s first headlining tour.

“Our first tour ever was with Seaway, so it only seemed right to put some of our greatest friends on our first headline tour. Head North and Sorority Noise are some of our favorite bands both consist of truly genuine people. It’s going to be a great fall.”

The Fall tour will kick off on Oct. 14 at the Hard Luck Bar in Toronto and wrap up on Nov. 21 at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland.

Pre-sales for the tour are currently available on the band’s website. For the complete list of tour dates, scroll down.

Knuckle Puck Premiere “Pretense”


With their debut album set to be released in a couple of weeks, Knuckle Puck have return with the third single off of the impending album, a track titled “Pretense.”

Instead of premiering the song themselves, like they did with the first two singles, the Illinois group decided to get a little help from their friends from across the pond at RockSound.

Check out the new song below.

“Pretense” will join previously released tracks “Disdain” and “True Contrite” on Copacetic. Copacetic is slated to hit stores on July 31 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the record are currently ongoing on their website.

In support of the new album, Knuckle Puck is currently in the middle of the 2015 Vans Warped Tour. If you haven’t seen them, then you should, just keep an eye on their Instagram page because they like to post dummy-proof photos of where they’re merchandise tent is every stop. It’s kind of funny.
