Knocked Loose have unveiled a crushing new single ‘Suffocate’ featuring Poppy — listen to it below.

Last night, the American hardcore band shared the video for ‘Suffocate’ via Pure Noise’s YouTube channel. The track starts with a furious, hard-hitting riff as the band waste no time, diving straight into the heaviness and aggression.

Soon, Poppy joins them, screaming and leading the band into a heavy reggaeton-inspired breakdown. Watch the music video for Knocked Loose’s ‘Suffocate’ featuring Poppy below.


‘Suffocate’ is taken off Knocked Loose’s upcoming third album ‘You Won’t Go Before You’re Supposed To’, which is due for release on May 10 via Pure Noise. The album will also include a collaboration with Chris Motionless from Motionless In White.

Prior to releasing ‘Suffocate’, Knocked Loose released the lead single ‘Blinding Faith’ in February to accompany the album’s reveal, followed by ‘Don’t Reach For Me’ in March.

Knocked Loose are set to play Sick New World festival in Las Vegas this weekend. The band were announced alongside System Of A DownSlipknot and Slowdive – check for any remaining tickets here.

On the Poppy front, ‘Suffocate’ comes after she collaborated with Bad Omens on ‘V.A.N.’ earlier this year. The track marked her first release since dropping her latest album ‘Zig’ in October last year.

NME caught up with Poppy to chat about the album, during which she spoke about the importance of mystery in her music: “I prefer to let people interpret them. I feel like they change meaning over time and sometimes it’s a little bit too personal – not with ‘Motorbike’, that one’s not as close [to me]. But I feel like sometimes it gets a little bit washed out if you over-explain what a song is about to you. Because once it’s out there, it belongs to them, whoever they are.”
