Comeback Kid announce new 7″ that features a cover of Midnight Oil’s “Beds Are Burning”

Canadian hardcore mainstays Comeback Kid have detailed a new, two song offering that will be available as a 7″ on their upcoming Australian tour. The EP will feature a cover of Midnight Oil’s “Beds Are Burning” (you know the song, even if you think you don’t) and a track from the “Outsider” LP sessions called “Little Soldier”.

On the decision to cover the track, singer Andrew Neufeld:
“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.”

Frustratingly there is no advance stream, but the EP is out digitally on the usual platforms on May 4th via Nuclear Blast.



Madball to release new album “For the Cause” in June

New York hardcore legends Madball have announced that their new album For the Cause will be released on June 15th via Nuclear Blast. The record was produced by Tim Armstrong from Rancid, who also guests on the album, along with Body Count‘s Ice-T and Psycho Realm’s Sick Jacken.

Bandleader Freddy Cricien comments:

“We are beyond excited to finally drop ‘For The Cause’!! To say we’re happy with the end result is an understatement! This record accurately defines the current state of our band… our sound, our state of mind, our ambitions, our flaws, and our attitude!

Tim and us go way back, he’s an old friend and super talented guy… across the board! A legend in his own right. He invited us to come record with him and it all fell into place very organically. He’s respected our band from day one and was excited to be a part of this. We’re honored to have him on board.

It’s truly an honor to have Ice-T on our record! I grew up on his music from his early hip hop stuff till now. He’s an iconic figure but also a ‘class ac’, you don’t always get both at once. Ice has a great respect for NYHC and Madball, means the world. This was meant to happen…. real recognizes real.”

The record will be Madball’s first one since 2014’s Hardcore Lives.



The Exploited explain why they haven’t released an album in over 15 years

The Exploited frontman Wattie Buchan recently explained to Metal Underground why it’s taken so long for the band to release a follow-up to 2003’s Fuck the System. He says:

“We told the label six years ago that we had an album almost ready. We’ve got at least sixteen brilliant songs written, I just need to put lyrics to them, but with my health problems I’ve not been able to do it. We’ve got a couple of songs written but it’s hard to get us together once a week for practice because we all live far away and our guitarist and bassist have jobs. Hopefully with my health being better, we’ll try and get something done, but I’ll never do anything unless it’s a hundrsd percent. We could go into the studio tomorrow and I could throw out some some lyrics, but it wouldn’t be hundred percent and that would be exploiting the punks.”

Canadian hardcore punks Comeback Kid have released a music video for the song “Surrender Control”. Give it a watch below.

Vocalist Andrew Neufeld had this to say about the song:

“Surrender Control is one of the first songs we wrote for this new album. Stu brought the original idea to the table and we messed around revising it for months leading up to the recording. We flew to Europe a day early before our last tour to shoot the video in Frankfurt, Germany with our friend Daniel Prieß. The song’s theme deals with the uphill battle some of us deal with while facing the perils of excess with anxiety.”

The track is from the band’s upcoming album “Outsider” which is due to be released on September 8th via New Damage Records and Nuclear Blast.

Comeback Kid are touring later on this year with Every Time I Die. You can find more information about the tour here.
