2021-09-17 - One of the biggest names in modern hardcore, Comeback Kid have released the fast paced, riff-heavy banger “No Easy Way Out”. The track, which was recorded in Winnipeg, MB at Private Ear Recording studio, is the first new original music to be heard from the influential hardcore/punk outfit since their 2017 release Outsider.

"This was an attempt to conjure up an edge of your seat rhythm that stays the course but builds intensity the whole way through until the end,” said lead vocalist Andrew Neufeld. “The feeling of looking over your shoulder and running for dear life. This is a stomper hardcore tune with a pummeling pace. When you're pushed in a corner, there's no easy way out!"
Accompanying the single is an age-restricted music video conceptualized and directed by Kevin Keegan. Amplifying the tracks feeling of needing to escape but also running into the realization that that may be harder than what it seems, the video for “No Easy Way Out” is a captivating comedic mini-thriller that sees the band being chased by a psycho kidnapper in a forest in Western Canada.
Earlier this summer, Comeback Kid announced a slew of tour dates for 2022. For a complete list of EU/UK dates, see below.

About Comeback Kid
Over the last twenty years Comeback Kid have been hailed as one of the major counterparts when it has come to shaping and pioneering both the Canadian and international modern punk and hardcore sound and scene alike.
Having formed in Winnipeg, before later releasing their 2002 demo, and the acclaimed, Turn It Around in 2003 via California’s Facedown Records, the five-piece have undoubtedly over the years been able to balance a DIY ethos and dependability, with that of a humanitarian ethos, and genre defining musicianship which has broken down the boundaries of hardcore, and transcended the genre onto a global stage.
Breaking into the mainstream with 2005’s career defining, Wake The Dead, Comeback Kid broke boundaries and both literally and musically stormed across new terrains, projecting the once underground genre on a globally touring scale alongside the likes of then Victory Records label mates, Earth Crisis, Terror and Refused.
Standing strong in the face of adversity and change, it would be 2007’s Broadcasting that would elucidate both Comeback Kid’s and the new sonic soundscape of 21st century punk music with vocalist Scott Wade stepping down and powerhouse, Andrew Neufeld taking over on vocal duties.
“We’re a hardcore band, but we don’t feel like we belong to any particular sect of that,” states Neufeld alongside band members, Jeremy Hiebert (guitar, Figure Four), Stu Ross (guitar, Misery Signals), Chase Brenneman (bass, Living With Lions), and Loren Legare (drums, Living With Lions). “We don’t want to be limited in any sense and prefer to work on our own terms.”
Now one of the most volatile leaders within the global heavy music community, and carrying the torch of igniting endless genres through playing with both sheer speed and force. Arguably 2017’s Outsider would pioneer a new path in which Comeback Kid would forge for some of today’s new heavyweights to follow, cementing the band’s status as one of the most revolutionary forefathers to carry the genre into the future.
Now with their seventh record on the horizon, the band are defining what it means to be both an integral, yet impressive units within both the foundation and edges of punk.
