Canada’s finest hardcore/punk outfit, Comeback Kid have signed with New Damage Records for Canada and Nuclear Blast for the rest of the world. Alongside the signing announcement, Comeback Kid have released a killer new track featuring Canadian legend and label mate Devin Townsend. “Absolute” will appear on the band’s highly anticipated follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed Die Knowing. Details on the new LP will be announced in the coming weeks.
Listen to “Absolute” below:
Of the signing, new track and the band’s forthcoming record, vocalist Andrew Neufeld had this to say, “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,” Neufeld continues. “There are a few collaborations and we stepped outside 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.”
