The single will include the band’s cover of the Midnight Oil classic as well as the previously unreleased song ‘Little Soldier‘, which came together during the Outsider sessions.
Andrew Neufeld explains why they decided to cover MIDNIGHT OIL: “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.”
The single will be released digitally on May 4 via Nuclear Blast. A limited print run of 500 7″ vinyl will be available direct from the band on tour. COMEBACK KID will be hitting UK shores on the following dates:
26.05. UK Leeds – Slam Dunk Festival North
27.05. UK Hatfield – Slam Dunk Festival South
28.05. UK Birmingham – Slam Dunk Festival Midlands
