Knuckle Puck + Shoreline
Chicago’s Knuckle Puck specialize in a muscular and melodic blend of old-school punk rock and emo. Following a series of buzzed-about EPs in the early 2010s, the band gained wider attention with their 2014 full-length Copacetic and its 2017 follow-up Shapeshifter. Knuckle Puck toured the U.S. and Europe heavily, playing with bands like Neck Deep, Good Charlotte, and Mayday Parade and releasing a third album, 20/20, in late 2020. After signing with the Pure Noise label, they returned in 2023 with a more intense tone on their fourth album Losing What We Love.
