Comeback Kid release new track feat. Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier
Comeback Kid have revealed a new single and video, "Crossed," featuring guest vocals from Gojira's Joe Duplantier. The song appears on the group's seventh studio album, Heavy Steps, which is slated to arrive on January 21 through Nuclear Blast.
Directed by Daniel Prieß and Max Maltais and filmed in Quebec, the new video can be found below.
Vocalist Andrew Neufeld comments: "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."
"It was wild how this song and video all came together," Neufeld continues. "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."
