Biography

Winnipeg, Canada (2000 – present)

Comeback Kid is a Canadian band from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Formed in 2000, the band is signed to Victory Records. Their name comes from a headline in a newspaper about hockey player, Mario Lemieux coming back to the NHL. The band was formed in 2002 by Andrew Neufeld and Jeremy Hiebert who were both members of the band Figure Four, which is currently on hiatus. They were joined by their friends Scott Wade and Kyle Profeta, but CBK was originally intended only to be a side project. Their initial popularity was mainly due to word of mouth within the hardcore scene.

Upon releasing “Turn It Around” on Facedown Records in 2003, Comeback Kid began touring full-time, covering most of North America as well as Europe. They also appeared on many high profile hardcore festivals like Hellfest and Posi Numbers festival. Following the touring for “Turn It Around”, Comeback Kid entered the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado to begin recording their sophomore full length.

In February 2005 Comeback Kid released “Wake The Dead”, their first for Victory Records. After some long tours, vocalist Scott Wade left the band. Neufeld became the band’s vocalist, and they began recording their third album “Broadcasting”. The release of “Broadcasting” was followed by more steady touring, culminating with a summer long tour supporting Rise Against in North America, and their first appearance on the “Never Say Die” tour in Europe with Parkway Drive. By the end of 2007 the band was to take a short hiatus. At this time bass player Kevin Call left the band on good terms, issuing a statement regarding leaving Comeback Kid.
