Bio:
All great things have humble beginnings…and Comeback Kid is no exception. Originating in 2002 as a way to put out some fast, energetic music, CBK has since turned into one of the most infectious forces in independent music today. Guitarist Andrew Neufeld was playing with prominent hardcore band Figure Four when he was presented with the opportunity to launch a new project, creating music different in style from Figure Four. It also gave him a chance to concentrate on guitar, giving singing duties to Scott Wade with Figure Four into one of guitarist with Comeback Kid.

With a lineup that also featured drummer Kyle Profeta, bassist Cliff Heide and fellow Figure Four guitarist Jeremy Hiebert, Comeback Kid immediately began to write and play local shows - all squeezed in-between Figure Four’s extensive touring schedule. After putting out Turn It Around in 2003, Comeback Kid signed to Victory Records in 2005 and released the astonishing hardcore masterpiece, Wake The Dead. The new effort was a call to arms. It was life
changing and life affirming. It was the communiqué that the restless youth of the world desperately needed. Punknews.org called it a “hands-down 10 out of 10.” Wake The Dead made Comeback Kid one of the most celebrated hardcore bands of new millennium.

The band responded to the call and toured the globe several times over in honest hardcore fashion. They played any festival, VFW hall and basement that would have them. Countries that do not even speak the band’s language still understand the message and hailed Comeback Kid as today’s premier hardcore band, making them one of the most successful bands in the genre.

Even with the departure of Wade, with Neufeld reclaiming the lead vocals, the band enters 2007 with a new record that will further their message of community and strengthen the perseverance and pride of the hardcore scene. Broadcasting … is the band’s monstrous new collection of anthems that will inspire listeners to tear into the pit, and chant along as if their lungs depended on it.

Broadcasting… combines breakneck hardcore punk rock in the tradition of Minor Threat, Bad Brains and 7 Seconds with forward thinking lyrics and ferocious melodies similar to Rise Against, Rancid and Bad Religion. It is the band’s most ambitious record and one of 2007’s most anticipated releases.
