3 Nov 2014 The Knockout's new video "The Young Will Overcome"

THE KNOCKOUTS put the pedal to the metal, launching a NEW killer hit and music video The Young Will Overcome from the critically acclaimed album "5000 Miles From Louisville!

Success has followed THE KNOCKOUTS since their sweaty and raw beginnings, rocketing into the Swedish punk rock scene in 1996. Their cult following has seen them on the road with the likes of Social Distortion, Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot, Aggrolites, Living End, as well as playing at the biggest European rock festivals such as Peace & Love, Putte Parken, West Coast Riot, Azkena Rock Spain, and moreā€¦

They stole the trophy for the Best Punk Album at the American Independent Music Awards as well as two nominations, Joe Perry of Aerosmith from the Jury making the call that THE KNOCKOUTS song Ever Been Hurt was one of the best country songs he had ever heard!

Frontman, singer and guitarist of THE KNOCKOUTS, Johan Frandsen, a sponsored artist with Gretsch USA and Australia and legendary TV Jones is undoubtedly one of Europe's most skilled guitarists!

THE KNOCKOUTS deliver flawless rock with a Scandinavian twist, that perfect mix of laid-back rockabilly, punchy country with a dash of razor-sharp punk rock. The Young Will Overcome gets down and dirty with a dune buggy vibe - lowered and a little bit dangerous!

In the clip you'll see Johan playing his favourite guitar - the Chris Cheney Signature model!

THE KNOCKOUTS sequel to the award winning album 'Among The Vultures' is the new album, '5000 Miles From Louisville' recorded and mixed with star producer Stefan Boman (KENT, Hives, Hellacopters, Backyard Babies and others).
