Several months ago, Bullet Tooth announced the signing of Chicago, IL collective Knockout Kid. In case you missed it, the band plays an aggressive blend of pop punk and hardcore that will almost certainly appeal to fans of acts like Four Year Strong and A Day To Remember.

With the dawn of the new year comes the news that Knockout Kid's new album, titled Manic, will be available on February 26. To coincide with the announcement, we're pleased to unveil a brand new track from the effort called "Jurassic Park After Dark." The song features Trey Sexton from Kid Liberty and can be streamed below. While you're jamming, we encourage you to pre-order Manic and follow Knockout Kid on Facebook.
