Through The Noise Tours Endures More Tragedy

This is just getting fucking ridiculous…

Comeback Kid has always been a resilient band and an event this week did nothing but solidify that fact. During the morning of Thursday, Oct. 23rd, Comeback Kid had their van and trailer stolen outside their hotel in Montreal. After driving to Montreal following a show in Drummondville, PQ, the band checked into their hotel at 2:30am and parked the van in a public lot. When they returned to the lot the following afternoon to go to the venue, the van was gone. “We called around to make sure the van hadn’t just been towed,” said guitarist Jeremy Hiebert “and once we realized what had happened, we just tried to deal with it”. In addition to their van and trailer, the band lost all of their gear and merchandise, as well as their personal belongings. While some people would be deterred by such an incident, Comeback Kid just forged on. Using borrowed gear they played Thursday night in Montreal, headlining the Through The Noise Tour with Misery Signals, Bane, Out Break, Shai Hulud and Grave Maker. They will finish the tour with dates in Toronto, London, Guelph and Hamilton before returning home and resting up before a South American tour in November.

CBK Live Show Review

A Review from Abort Magazine on the first stop of the Through The Noise Tour

See the full review at: http://abortmag.com/?p=2212

This show was sold out, as have been the last four along the tour. It made it’s stop in CBK’s hometown of Winnipeg last night, and much hooting and hollering ensued. About 800 people, and each one doing this classic hardcore (see picture) move on each other. 400 people strangled to death by the end of the show. Only the strong will survive.

Comeback Kid Australian Tour Dates Announced

CBK return to Australia in January 09.

As part of the “Boys of Summer Tour”, Comeback Kid will be co-headling the tour with Australian’s Carpathian. Check out the dates on our tours page, and below is the official official press release.

2009 will see the return of one of the country’s most loved single-stage festivals. Since it’s inception, the BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR has played host to some of the biggest local and international hardcore, punk and rock acts, including Evergreen Terrace, Misery Signals, Parkway Drive, Set Your Goals, I Killed The PromQueen, Silverstein and The Getaway Plan. In this, it’s forth year running, the ELEMENT BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR will travel to more cities and towns then it ever has before!

And here is the line up… CARPATHIAN, COMEBACK KID, VERSE and AGAINST!
Melbourne straightedge hardcore band, Carpathian, will lead the ELEMENT BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR 2009 onslaught. The Carpathian story is one of set backs and frustrations, but overall triumph. After various line-up shuffles, Carpathian found their winning formula after guitarist Martin Kirby took back over the vocal reigns from I Killed The Prom Queen frontman (turned short-lived TV celebrity), Michael Crafter. After ripping through UK and Europe alongside label mates Parkway Drive and US act On Broken Wings, Carpathian returned to Australia with more determination, more passion and a more brutal sound. Their second full-length album, ‘Isolation’, was released by Resist in July of 2008 to a massive #19 ARIA debut. Full of rockin’ heavy hardcore riffs, furious lyrics, blood-curdling vocals and world-class production, ‘Isolation’ is an emotioncharged, energy-fuelled behemoth that the band only improves on live. Don’t miss the wrath of Carpathian on the ELEMENT BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR.

Next is Comeback Kid. These Canadians formed with one simple purpose in mind: to get out and play some fast, furious hardcore. Two critically acclaimed albums later and after tirelessly touring in the UK, Europe, Canada, USA, Japan, New Zealand and Iceland with bands such as Rise Against, Sick Of It All, Madball, Bad Religion, Dropkick Murphys and Terror, Comeback Kid have become one of the biggest names in hardcore today. For the ELEMENT BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR, Comeback Kid will once again show Australian fans why they have cemented themselves as one of the world’s best live acts.

s the second international act on the bill, the ELEMENT BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR will bring US group Verse to Australia for the very first time! Since releasing their second full-length album ’From Anger And Rage’ here on Washed Up Records, Verse’s Australian fanbase has growing rapidly. They are a defiant band; taking risks, expressing opinions and exploring ideas. The band has always had the anger expected from hardcore bands, but with a more stylistic approach. Their latest studio effort, ‘Aggression’, demonstrates their epic songwriting, screaming vocals and political ideas.

Rounding out the stella line-up is Brisbane boys, Against. Against is one of the true stalwarts of the Australian hardcore scene. With a slew of successful releases under their belt through Common Bond Records and more recently, Trial And Error, the five-piece is set to drop another full length in early 2009. With a new line-up in place and a more intense, metallic sound, Against will be on a mission to remind us all what they are capable as they take their well-earned place on the 2009 BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR.

The ELEMENT BOYS OF SUMMER TOUR 2009 will hit Toowoomba, Brisbane, Nambour, Mermaid Waters,Wyong, Sydney, Canberra, Summerville, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Freemantle during January. Tickets will go fast so don’t miss your chance to catch what may be the tour of the year!!

Comeback Kid Tour and DVD Announced!

CBK are pleased to present their Canadian Fall tour along with Bane, Misery Signals, Shai Hulud, Outbreak and Grave Maker. All to coincide with the release of their forthcoming DVD and live CD release.

Comeback Kid, one of the hardest touring bands in hardcore today, is thrilled to announce the October 14th release of Through the Noise a retrospective documentary and live concert DVD (Smallman Records in Canada).  Corresponding with the release of this DVD, Comeback Kid will headline a cross-Canada tour with support bands Misery Signals, Bane, Shai Hulud, Outbreak, and Grave Maker. 

Through the Noise contains the documentary “Our Distance,” which uses intimate footage to follow the band both onstage and off, touring, and recording from Comeback Kid’s first show to present day.

Alongside the documentary, the DVD features “Live in Leipzig” a crushing live performance of Comeback Kid playing in Germany on November 23, 2007. Surrounded by six cameras, Comeback Kid’s onstage intensity is vividly captured as they shred through songs spanning all of their albums.

A 17 track audio CD of “Live at Leipzig” is also included in the package.

The Through the Noise tour planned in support of the DVD will take Comeback Kid across 20 Canadian cities starting October 8th in Vancouver, BC and ending October 27th in Hamilton, ON.  Misery Signals, Bane, Shai Hulud, Outbreak, and Grave Maker join Comeback Kid on all dates.
