Canada’s hardcore punk outfit, COMEBACK KID have signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast (New Damage Records in Canada). For the past months, the band have worked hard on the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed ‘Die Knowing’, which is scheduled for a release later this year. Today COMEBACK KID in co-operation with NOISEY present the first single off of the as of yet untitled new album. ‘Absolute’ features fellow Canadian music legend Devin Townsend and can be checked out below! COMEBACK KID will soon hit European shores for a 3-week run of shows throughout sweaty clubs and big summer festivals. See the details below.
UPDATE: The band have announced the details for their upcoming sixth studio album! ‘Outsider’ is going to be released on September 8th, 2017 via Nuclear Blast (via New Damage Records in Canada).
Vocalist Andrew Neufeld commented:
“We are ecstatic to be signing with Nuclear Blast. A label that has been running for 30 years and home to some of hardcore and metal’s most integral acts. Like COMEBACK KID, Nuclear Blast is a label that focuses it’s energy globally as they have offices all over the world. That is really exciting for us as a band that prides itself on playing in as many corners of the earth as possible.
Here in Canada we are joining up with long-time friends at New Damage/Dine Alone. We have worked closely with them before so we know it will be a great fit and fresh start in our home country.
Our new album is going to be the most diverse and interesting record yet in my opinion. There are a few collaborations and we stepped outside of our box and out of our comfort zone a lot on this one. I’ve worked with Devin Townsend on another project before so to have him sing on “Absolute” was awesome for us. I was conjuring up his vocal style anyways when laying down the guide vocals before we knew he was on board for the song. When we asked him to be a part of it he was open and willing so we thank him for that. He definitely put his unique stamp on it.
On to the next chapter for COMEBACK KID with a new team to help us share our music. We will be starting a new cycle of touring around the world starting this summer. Can’t wait to share what we have been working on.”
