Knuckle Puck Share New Single & Video “Double Helix”


Chicago pop punkers Knuckle Puck have released “Double Helix”, a new track taken from their highly anticipated sophomore album, Shapeshifter. They have also shared its video.

Rise Records will release Shapeshifter on October 13, 2017 and the band previously released “Gone“, the first single from the new album, earlier this summer. Shapeshifter is currently available for pre-order.

Watch the new video below:

In early 2017, Knuckle Puck entered the studio to record the follow-up to Copacetic—their 2015 breakthrough, but midway through the process, the band (vocalist Joe Taylor, guitarists Nick Casasanto and Kevin Maida, bassist Ryan Rumchaks and drummer John Siorek) realized they were on the wrong path. They weren’t only making the wrong album for Knuckle Puck—they were making the wrong album for themselves. They knew they had no choice but to start from scratch.

Having such a struggle and being so disconnected in the recording process felt wrong,” Casasanto explains. “It felt so wrong, and we were all afraid to talk about it. There was some denial when we realized what was unfolding.”

When you reach early adulthood and start to see your life take shape, it’s also important to shape your identity and break yourself free from anything that might be holding you down,” Casasanto says. “That was a glaring parallel between what was going on with the record and what we were writing about at the time. Although it was tumultuous, I truly think we wouldn’t have written the same record without going through what we did.”

I hope the album instills a little bit of hope in people,” Casasanto says. “You look at politics and how fast the world is now, everything the internet is bringing to the world. It’s difficult to form an identity when there’s so much in your face. I hope people realize they should consume the things that really speak to them. Through that, I feel like it’s the most satisfying way to be who you want to be.”
