Crannk Interviews Comeback Kid-Andrew Neufeld

I caught up with Comeback Kid‘s Andrew Neufeld to talk all about the seventh studio album for the Canadian Hardcore Heavyweights, “Heavy Steps” which was released on the 21st of January via Nuclear Blast Records.

Featuring the riff-heavy first single ‘No Easy Way Out‘, the tone-setting dynamic title track with punishing bass lines, masterful drumming and an infectious singalong chorus (“Heavy Steps”), and the no-frills metallic hardcore banger “Crossed”, Heavy Steps embodies all the things that make Comeback Kid so revered in their genre. The record is fast, fun, beautifully crafted melodic hardcore. Heavy Steps, which follows the hardcore veteran’s 2017’s critically acclaimed full-length Outsider, sees the band returning to their roots both geographically and musically. Although the members of the band are currently residing across Canada in Winnipeg, Toronto,and Vancouver, the band decided to write and record their latest effort in the band’s originating city of Winnipeg, Manitoba at Private Ear Recording Studio and once again enlisted the services of producer John Paul Peters (Cancer Bats, Propagandhi) who recorded the band’s debut album Turn It Around. In addition to co-production by Peters, on Heavy Steps, COMEBACK KID collaborated with prominent Grammy award-winning mixer and long-time fan of the band Will Putney (Knocked Loose, Every Time I Die). Featuring guest appearances by Gojira’s Joe Duplantier, Heavy Steps is no longer a prerequisite to realizing COMEBACK KID’s influence on modern punk, but a delivery of pure anthemic chaos, sheer speed, and force. It is a statement of intent. “It’s about hitting the ground running, not knowing when or where the ground could break from underneath you.” summarizes Neufeld. “It’s heavy steps on thin ice. Heavy steps on hollow ground.”
