It is time to finally say that our original drummer Kyle Profeta has left Comeback Kid. His last show was a few weeks ago in California. Kyle has been a significant and contributing member to our band since it's inception. We wrote "All In A Year" in his bedroom back in 2000. An amazing friend and an incredible talented drummer. Thanks Kyle for the great times. See his statement we have shared below. Kyle we wish you all the best! Love you! We would also like to welcome Jesse Labovitz to the fold. He is now on his second tour with us and is killing it. We are psyched to have him on board! We're out on tour across Canada...
