COMEBACK KID Announce Midnight Oil Cover



Canada's finest hardcore/punk outfit, COMEBACK KID, have announced the release of brand new music in the form of a 2 track single, Beds Are Burning. 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

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
