Hardcore mainstays Comeback Kid release ‘Trouble’ EP

For the past two decades, Comeback Kid has stood as a cornerstone in shaping and pioneering the Canadian and international modern punk and hardcore sound. Today the band releases ‘Trouble,’ their new EP out on Sharp Tone Records. Produced and recorded by the band and John Paul Peters at Private Ear Recording in their hometown of Winnipeg during 2023, the new EP is a testament to Comeback Kid’s unwavering commitment to pushing forward on their own terms.

The band set out to create an almost palette cleanser from past material, leaning more upbeat, but still carrying the hard-hitting aggression they’re known for. With mixing and mastering from Will Putney, you can hear the layers and depth of sound the band carved out in every track on the release. The four songs are a sonic blast, as bright melodies cross waves with thrashy riffs and riled-up vocals.

“We wanted to be a little more melodic, fun, and bright with this,” says vocalist Andrew Neufeld, emphasizing the band’s evolution. Continuing on the band’s legacy, he states, “This band is everything to me. It’s allowed me to travel the world. It’s shaped most of my friendships. To be on stage and see the responses we get is the driving force of our lives.”
