KNOCKED LOOSE Call Out TAYLOR SWIFT For A Feud
Up-and-coming hardcore band Knocked Loose will be releasing their highly anticipated new album, A Different Shade of Blue on August 23rd. Coincidentally, it's the same day mega pop star Taylor Swift will be releasing her album, Lover. Lover is almost a surefire bet to be #1 on the charts when its released but Knocked Loose aren't going down without a fight.
Knocked Loose frontman Bryan Garris jokingly thought it would be a fun gag to call Taylor Swift out for a feud in anticipation of their albums being released the same day. What Garris did not anticipate was that his joke would be retweeted hundreds of times, go viral and that he would have Swift fans coming after him.
Garris originally tweeted "Hey @taylorswift13 , big fan. Looks like we (@knockedloose ) are releasing an album on the same day this year… August 23rd. Let’s see who sells more first week. Good luck."
After seeing the retweets pour in, Garris had to clarify he was just kidding around and is a fan "This is a joke btw and I am an actual fan of Taylor Swift lmao." He did make sure to also include a pre-order link for his next album.
