I know I'm late, but I'm taking a listen to their last album. This is without any doubt their most hardcore release, I'm fucking loving it at first listen. Can't wait to see them live again in a few weeks.
Die Knowing was the first release that took me some time to get into. It has grown on me and I appreciate the in your face hardcore style. I just wasn't expecting it, seeing as they are so amazing at writing those melodic riffs. But the passion and emotion is still found in the lyrics and music, so that's what keeps this band going strong, and THAT is the foundation of CBK in my opinion.
The site I write for did an Album versus feature on Comeback Kid: Die Knowing vs Wake the Dead. Check it out!
Really love the more in your face punk approach on this new album. Only downfall is that it took a good 4 years to write and release, taking touring and the live album release into consideration. Hopefully the next album isn't another 4 years away.
