Before their first studio album, Knocked Loose released EPs and splits in 2014 and 2015. It wasn�t until 2016 that they signed with Pure Noise Records and released their first studio album, Laughed Loose, which came out in September of 2016. A music video accompanied the release of the Laughed Loose album, and it showcases their two songs �Billy Mates� and �Counting Worms.� Later, a second music video was released for the track, �Rain.� You can also find additional videos to their music like a music video for �Last Words,� �Deadringer� and �The Gospel.�
Their music has been described by New Noise Magazine as being a fusion of the hardcore band ComeBack Kid, thrash legends Slayer and metalcore heroes Code Orange.

The band has stated that they do not want to be pigeonholed into one genre, however, and prefer to play diverse styles.
