Comeback Kid Release New Song Featuring Gojira’s Joe Duplantier
Comeback Kid have released a new single and video, “Crossed,” featuring guest vocals from Gojira’s Joe Duplantier.
The song will appear on Comeback Kid’s anticipated seventh studio album, Heavy Steps, which is set for release on January 21, 2022.

Says lead vocalist Andrew Neufeld of the new single:
“’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 of the song’s music video, which was directed by Daniel Prieß and Max Maltais, 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.”
