Comeback Kid release ‘Outsider,’ made a video for “Hell of a Scene” (watch)

Winnipeg melodic hardcore staples Comeback Kid have been at it for about 15 years now, and today they released their latest album, Outsider, their first for Nuclear Blast (order yours). Along with its release, we’re premiering the video for “Hell of a Scene.” The 1:50-long song goes back and forth between some of their blastiest stuff and their trademark melodic side, and the video is mostly performance footage shot on the streets of Denmark. Here’s what vocalist Andrew Neufeld tells us about it:

“Hell Of A Scene” was intended to be a song brighter in mood. We always had a laugh writing and playing this song in rehearsals, but it always felt right. One of my favorites on the new album. We shot this video in Aalborg, Denmark while on tour this last summer during some down time an afternoon before a show that night. It was very on the fly and spontaneous. Pleased to premiere it on our album release day.

You can watch the new video and the album trailer, and stream the new album below.

As mentioned, Comeback Kid are going on a headlining tour with support from NYHC vets Burn (whose new album is also out today) and recent Southern Lord signees Jesus Piece.

That tour includes a NYC show on October 19 at Brooklyn Bazaar (tickets). All dates are listed below.
