Breathe is the third single to be released from Knuckle Puck’s upcoming album 20/20, following on from RSVP and Tune You Out. The album is due for release on 18th September via Rise Records.
The new single features Mayday Parade vocalist Derek Sanders who also makes an appearance in the video.
Speaking on the single, Knuckle Puck vocalist Nick Casasanto says “I find myself dwelling on things when they go wrong. Maybe something happened that was beyond my control or I said something that I later regretted. When these thoughts enter my mind, they takeover and it’s hard to breathe, putting me into an almost dissociative state. It wasn’t until I discovered mindfulness that I started to regain control, telling myself to take a deep breath and purge the negative thoughts.”
He continues, “Life is going to constantly challenge you, but the only thing that truly matters is your mindset while weathering the storm. In these strange, infuriating and often scary times, remember to stay positive and breathe. Cool heads always prevail.”

Speaking on the new album Casasanto says “Not every song has to be an existential journey. We went into this album wanting to make people feel good about who they are and not upset about who they aren’t. There’s so much to be angry about right now, and rather than contribute to it, we wanted to give people a reason to feel good. I want people to want to listen to this record.”
