The Pure Noise Records Tour brought some of the best bands hardcore has to offer right now, from young rising bands like Sanction and Year Of The Knife, to veterans Stick To Your Guns and Counterparts.

With the news that Knocked Loose are holed up in the studio with Fit For An Autopsy guitarist/producer extraordinare Will Putney, fans of the band have to be excited that new music – the band’s first since 2016’s Laugh Tracks – is coming soon. After rumors circulated online earlier this week with the existence of a tour (presumably) supporting upcoming material, they were proven true. Knocked Loose are headed out on a spring headlining tour, with a heavy hitting support lineup that includes The Acacia Strain, the UK’s Higher Power, rising stars Sanction, and #weightliftingcore band Harm’s Way. Needless to say, this is the spring tour that heavy music fans have been craving. Just watch out for the moshpits.
While there’s sadly a plethora of formerly interesting bands now attempting to appeal to the lowest common denominator via lazy songwriting and lack of inspiration, there’s plenty of exciting acts that are rising from their local scenes to tour with known quantities. Some, like Knocked Loose, seemingly did so overnight – while others, like Code Orange, took more of a slow burning route to get nominated for Grammy awards.
No matter which way you slice it, if you’re a fan of hardcore, metalcore, grindcore, or really any heavy music subgenre, there’s plenty of exciting acts coming around. On this first edition of Notes From Underground, we’re bringing you the best the underground has to offer. Strap yourselves in and discover something new today.
