One of the biggest names in modern hardcore, Comeback Kid announce their seventh studio album, Heavy Steps will be released January 21, 2022 via Nuclear Blast worldwide (and New Damage Records in Canada).
Alongside the album announcement, the influential punk rock heavyweights have unveiled the tone-setting, dynamic title track and its humorously entertaining accompanying video.
Says lead vocalist Andrew Neufeld of the new single “I think of our new single ‘Heavy Steps’ as a bold statement of a riff right off the bat, and lyrically coming from an unhinged perspective about tearing through life. Instinct over reason – without even realizing how easily our worlds could implode from under our feet. A bit of a “just test me” type sentiment is being echoed in this song.”
Picking up where the comedic mini-thriller video for their riff-heavy banger No Easy Way Out left off (spoiler; Comeback Kid are chased in a forest and kidnapped), the video for Heavy Steps, which is also directed by Kevin Keegan, kicks off with a mysterious masked individual walking towards a stage carrying a couple of guitars while eerie, unnerving horror-esque score plays in the background. To everyone’s surprise and for pure comic relief, it becomes clear that the band has been kidnapped by an over eager father in order to play his son Skip’s 10th birthday party.
