Comeback Kid Release Cover Of SNFU’s “Reality Is A Ride On The Bus”

Comeback Kid have released a cover of SNFU‘s “Reality Is A Ride On The Bus.” You can purchase that track via Bandcamp.

The group commented:

“The legendary SNFU are one of the world’s greatest punk rock bands. When we were kids, some of the first punk shows we attended were SNFU shows. You could always expect a wildly energetic and uniquely entertaining performance.

On July 16th 2020 we were saddened to hear that SNFU frontman, Kendall Chinn, aka Mr. Chi Pig, had passed away. In honour of Mr. Chi Pig and SNFU’s undeniable contributions to the punk scene worldwide, we pay tribute to their legacy with our rendition of “Reality Is a Ride on the Bus.”

The song is available for purchase on @bandcamp with 100% of the proceeds being donated to @Raycamcentre. Ray-Cam Co-operative Centre offers programs low cost to youth, families and seniors who live in the area (the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, one of Canada’s poorest postal codes). Programs are geared towards meeting the challenges of the community, including food security, safety and the educational, social and recreational needs of members.

RIP Mr. Chi Pig

Thanks to Tim Creviston, Dave Grabowsk , Jordan Voth for killing this as we recording remotely across the country.
* also thanks to @Michael Ieradi and Cole Young for the media help.”

Comeback Kid Premiere “I’ll Be That” Music Video, Announce Fall Dates

Comeback Kid have premiered a new video for their song “I’ll Be That.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Outsider.”

The band commented:

“For ‘I’ll Be That‘, we shot another hybrid video working with our good friend from Finland Sami Joensuu for the second time. We collaborated on the narrative trying to incorporate a story that involves someone being their worst enemy and trying to escape themselves before it all catches up to them. The band performance was shot in Lisbon, Portugal on an afternoon before we played a show there earlier this year. Excited to finally get this out.”

Comeback Kid To Cover Midnight Oil‘s “Beds Are Burning” On New 7″

Comeback Kid will be releasing a cover of Midnight Oil‘s “Beds Are Burning,” along with a previously unreleased track titled “Little Soldier“ on May 4. The tracks will be available digitally and as a limited edition 7″. Andrew Neufeld commented on the cover:

“A while back I randomly saw the video for the song ‘Beds Are Burning‘. I had heard it in passing many times before but the video intrigued me at that particular time. After finding out that it was a protest song about giving back lands to an indigenous group in Australia, it resonated with me because of the current situation our Canadian government has with its indigenous people.”

Comeback Kid Premiere “Hell Of A Scene” Music Video

Comeback Kid have premiered a new video for their new song “Hell Of A Scene,” via Brooklyn Vegan. This song is from their new album “Outsider” which was released today (September 8).

The band commented:

“‘Hell Of A Scene‘ was intended to be a song brighter in mood. We always had a laugh writing and playing this song in rehearsals, but it always felt right. One of my favorites on the new album. We shot this video in Aalborg, Denmark while on tour this last summer during some down time an afternoon before a show that night. It was very on the fly and spontaneous. Pleased to premiere it on our album release day.

To release our 6th studio album, with a fresh start on Nuclear Blast/New Damage is a significant moment for us. It really feels like we are starting a whole new chapter with the band. On this record we allowed ourselves to step outside the box a little more musically while still binding to the traditional Comeback Kid sound, resulting in what I think is our most dynamic material yet.”
