While the two bands already collaborated last year on Dying Wish’s “Enemies In Red”, Dying Wish and Knocked Loose are one of many bands using their platforms for good in the wake of the George Floyd protests and riots all across the USA. The two bands have collaborated on a new shirt that benefits both the Portland Freedom Fund and the Louisville Community Bail Fund – the home cities of both bands.
Of course, once you see the shirt, you’ll probably notice the comments from disgruntled fans on social media. Some of them are hilariously uninformed, and many of the others are distressingly shortsighted as to what the real problem is here. Surprisingly, it might shock people that both bands are *gasp* anti-establishment! And it’s not like either band is profiting off this shirt, either. Clearly, none of the dissenters here have ever once read the lyrics of “Oblivions Peak”.
A shocking amount of people: A hardcore, metal and/or punk band that doesn’t support the police??????? What is this??!!!
Like do they not realize what anti establishment is about? pic.twitter.com/5t7ujX4hlE

Why are we targeting all police and not just the ones that are doing wrong? Idk how many times I have to say this. This is retarded.
