Published May 04, 2018Canadian hardcore lifers Comeback Kid have followed up their Outsider LP with plans for a new single. Along with a new original tune, the band have recorded a cover of Midnight Oil's "Beds Are Burning," which you can hear now.
As could be expected, CBK have beefed up the song, making it sound like a meaty hardcore jam. That is, until the undeniably memorable chorus kicks in.
Speaking of the cover, frontman Andrew Neufeld offered the following statement:
We recorded the 'Beds Are Burning' cover on a whim while recording our last record. I saw the video at a bar and it got me inspired to text and try to convince the band into it. It went over well so here we are with a new cover and another new song called 'Little Soldier' which I thought might have more legs if we released it as a single as opposed to a track 9 on a full length. It's a bit of a different vibe for Comeback Kid and a song that I had a lot of fun writing. Our labels are putting it out digitally and we pressed the 7 inches so for the first time CBK pressing our own music. Limited to 500 and only selling live and maybe through a couple friends. Playing it by ear if we will press more. This was a fun collaborative project.
