Published Oct 22, 2008Influential melodic hardcore band Kid Dynamite formed from the ashes of the equally legendary and melodic Lifetime in 1997, and only released two albums before disbanding in 2000. From there, the members went on to play in None More Black, Paint It Black and the Loved Ones before last years Pete Wentz-approved Lifetime reunion.
Still, despite the quality of their other projects, its hard not to miss the pummeling aggression and addictive melodies of Kid Dynamite. Fortunately, Copper Lung Records will give fans a remedy with Carry the Torch: A Tribute to Kid Dynamite. Due early next year, the compilation will feature 26 covers from modern hardcore and punk bands, including Daggermouth, Lewd Acts, This is Hell and the Wonder Years. The release will also include a posthumous track from the Ergs! Some songs from the comp can be streamed here.
