'On this album, we go the fastest we've ever gone; we go the scariest we've ever gone. We also go the catchiest and the most melodic that we've ever gone,' guitarist Isaac Hale said.

Knocked Loose has put out the lead single for its upcoming record, which will be the band's first full studio album in five years.

"Blinding Faith" was released alongside a chilling music video directed by Kevin Lombardo on Tuesday, Feb. 27. It will appear on the band's upcoming album You Won’t Go Before You’re Supposed To, which is due out on May 10 via Pure Noise Records.

The new song is another well-considered metalcore track from the Kentucky group that's performed at events like Coachella and Bonnaroo. "Blinding Faith" utilizes more industrial and gothic sounds than the band's previous record A Different Shade of Blue, which was defined by its death metal influences.

The album's title was inspired by frontman Bryan Garris' "borderline phobia of flying."

On one particularly difficult flight, he spoke about his anxiety with a fellow passenger who tried to console him.

"You won’t go before you’re supposed to," she said.

"On this album, we go the fastest we've ever gone; we go the scariest we've ever gone. We also go the catchiest and the most melodic that we've ever gone, and that's the point," guitarist Isaac Hale said.

"Instead of branching off into a specific direction, we want to encompass ALL directions."

The record includes at least two features, one from the Grammy-nominated songwriter Poppy on the track "Suffocate" and another from Motionless in White frontman Chris Motionless on "Slaughterhouse 2."

Neither of the Upon Loss Singles released last year will appear on the new album.

It will appear on their upcoming album 'You Won’t Go Before You’re Supposed To,' which is due out on May 10.

Hale described "Blinding Faith" as a song about religion.

"It was just hilarious how many people showed up to church that I knew were rude, horrible, selfish people," the guitarist said.

"They knew that it made them seem like a better person – or if they said the words, it would redeem them of any negative quality just because they showed face."

Knocked Loose is currently in the middle of a European tour that will wrap up at London's O2 Arena on Sunday, March 10.

They'll then appear at the Sick New World Festival in Las Vegas before embarking on a North American tour with support from Show Me The Body, Loathe and Speed. The trek will begin in Detroit on April 29 and end in St. Petersburg, Florida, on June 9.

Many of the North American dates are already sold out, but the remaining tickets can be purchased through Knocked Loose's website.
