Comeback Kid – Outsider

Comeback Kid – Outsider

Comeback Kid are set to drop their new album “Outsider” September 8th through Nuclear Blast Records, check out their latest video “Surrender Control” here:

Outsider, Comeback Kid’s sixth full-length and first on the iconic Nuclear Blast Records (New Damage Records in Canada) – represents the pinnacle of  progress to date, simultaneously pushing new boundaries while returning to the in-your-face immediacy of their first releases. “It’s always been about refining what we do and incorporating new things,” vocalist Andrew Neufeld affirms. “This time around, we were really focused on songs that we knew would connect from the stage.” To that point, Surrender Control is essentially a clinic in inciting a riotous moshpit with an anthemic chorus while Absolute injects some thrash metal into more familiar CBK staples of call-and-response gang vocals and a punishing outro breakdown. They’re as furious as anything in the band’s back catalogue and effective foils to more ambitious offerings like ‘Hell of a Scene’, which combines blazing blast beats in the verses with an infections melodic hardcore chorus, and the more hard rock-centric ‘Consumed the Vision’. Neufeld’s voice is as powerful and piercing as ever while also pushing into new, often more melodic territory. That’s fitting considering the wide breadth of topics he tackles in his lyrics, from the plight of innovative thinkers to a world ripe with distractions from meaningful interactions to wrestling with personal demons, however they might materialize.

Outsider is here September 8th with pre orders live now:
