Life and Death Brigade Fest is a festival that unites some of the biggest names in hardcore and other subsects of the underground. Held in Louisville, Kentucky, this year’s lineup was stacked yet again, featuring the likes of Magnitude, Fiddlehead, Higher Power, and many more. With packed crowds that were clearly passionate for music (as you’ll soon see), it’s festivals and shows like this that remind us why music is an escape.
Of course, at festivals like this there’s often the occasional special guest and even surprise set, but that doesn’t make Knocked Loose’s appearance at the festival last weekend any less awesome. What made the riotous set even more awesome is the crowd participation and the connection KL has with their audience. It’s awfully impressive, and really goes to show why the Kentucky band are playing major festivals just 5-6 years into their career. Check out the whole thing below.
