Comeback Kid announces world tour

Official press release: Non-stop touring Canadian hardcore band Comeback Kid announces they will soon be embarking on an eight-month tour that will take them to the USA, Japan, South East Asia, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, South America, Europe and the UK. CBK stop first in Hawaii for two dates in April before joining Canada's legendary political punk band Propagandhi in Japan for five dates starting April 16. CBK then fly to Southeast Asia to play in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong. In May the band travels to Mexico for four shows and plans are just being finalized for a tour of Russia to follow in June. In June and July CBK also tour Portugal, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Italy, and the UK. After a short summer break, CBK have eight dates booked for South America. Lead singer Andrew Neufeld describes his anticipation for the upcoming tours saying, "This year is shaping up to be pretty crazy. We really wanted to play some places that we haven't been before and go back to some countries that we don't get to often enough. We're going to Japan with Propagandhi who is one of most of us in Comeback Kid's favorite bands. We get to go to Central and South America, which we have been talking about forever, and go to South East Asia for the first time. All I can say is we're really, really excited!" CBK recently finished a five-week headlining tour of the US, and there are rumors of a Canadian tour this October. The band continues to tour in support of Broadcasting... (Smallman / Victory), released in 2007. Recorded with producer Bill Stevenson at the Blasting Room, the album exceeded all expectations for the follow-up to Comeback Kid's critically acclaimed sophomore album Wake the Dead (Smallman / Victory).
