COMEBACK KID have released the new track “Crossed”, which is the third single from their seventh studio album, “Heavy Steps“. The song features GOJIRA frontman Joe Duplantier and can be heard below.
COMEBACK KID singer Andrew Neufeld says: “‘Crossed‘ is a no-frills metallic hardcore track. Lyrically it deals with someone in my life that seemed so far gone and I had to watch them dig themselves further and further into a low and unrealistic place. ‘Crossed into the void’ so to say. We enlisted Joe from Gojira to represent somewhat of an overlord menacing presence in the song. An overshadowing power via his blood-curdling scream. This song is direct and to the point about staying in reality and warns of the elements that could bring us further into darkness.”
Speaking about the Daniel Prieß and Max Maltais directed video for the track, Neufeld adds: “It was wild how this song and video all came together. So many people from all over the world contributed to this project. On top of the teams used to create the video, the track was recorded in Winnipeg and was mixed in New York by Will Putney. Then Joe [Duplantier] recorded his parts at his house (I believe) in France! This is one of the most fun collaborative projects that I have had the pleasure of working on.”
“Heavy Steps” arrives on January 21st via Nuclear Blast/New Damage Records.
