Reach The Sky
During the morning of Thursday, Oct. 23rd, Comeback Kid had their van and trailer stolen outside their hotel in Montreal while on the "Through The Noise Tour." After driving to Montreal following a show in Drummondville, PQ, the band checked into their hotel at 2:30am and parked the van in a public lot. When they returned to the lot the following afternoon to go to the venue, the van was gone.
“We called around to make sure the van hadn’t just been towed,” said guitarist Jeremy Hiebert “and once we realized what had happened, we just tried to deal with it.” In addition to their van and trailer, the band lost all of their gear and merchandise, as well as their personal belongings.
While some people would be deterred by such an incident, Comeback Kid just forged on. Using borrowed gear they played Thursday night in Montreal, headlining the Through The Noise Tour with Misery Signals, Bane, Out Break, Shai Hulud and Grave Maker. They will finish the tour with dates in Toronto, London, Guelph and Hamilton before returning home and resting up before a South American tour in November.
Bane will tour the East Coast next month with Meltdown, I Rise, and Wake Up Call. The latest tour dates are as follows:
5/1 Haverhill, MA @ Welfare Records
5/2 Amherst, MA @ Mercy House
5/3 Lemoyne, PA @ Champion Ship
5/4 Philadelphia, PA @ First Unitarian Church
5/5 Baltimore, MD @ Otto Bar
5/6 Virginia Beach, VA @ Liberty IV
5/7 Providence, RI @ Club Hell
5/8 Waterbury, CT @ Bobby Allens
5/10 Syracuse, NY @ Klub Polski
Ah, Bane in New York City’s Knitting Factory: non-stop straight-edge hardcore at its finest. Boston’s Bane plugged their gear in, and from the first force of front man Aaron Bedard’s strong vocals and heavy and energetic 3-chord and punch-packed drum backing from the band, fans were singing along in unison while moshers threw themselves across the floor. Bane made it clear they were excited to play New York City.
Bane’s merchandise booth was jam-packed with fans waiving their money and pointing to shirts. Personally, I fell in love with their black shirt with gold glittered ‘BANE.’ Inevitably, Bedard gifted me with a shirt and a hoodie. I can’t express enough how much this band RULES in every way! More...

After more than three years, Silent Drive (featuring members and ex-members of Bane and Drowningman) have posted a new song online. The new track, titled "Mexican Standoff," will be featured on the band's second album for Equal Vision Records. As such, the demo material will be re-recorded for the new album. The drum tracks were recorded in Vermont with drummer Dave Joyal's friend, Mark Lucia. Vocals, guitar, and bass were recorded in Massachusetts with Silent Drive's new second guitar player, Andy Kyte. The band states that the song is one of "the heavier tracks on the record and you can still expect the 'no song sounds the same' style on the next album."
A note from the band regarding the recent addition of Kyte: "Andy has been a friend of ours for years, He actually played second guitar in Silent Drive when the band was formed in early-2003. After we started jamming with Andy, we realized it helped fill out our sound to a degree we had never thought possible in the past. Now we have more room to experiment."
Two songs from the forthcoming SICK OF IT ALL tribute album — HATEBREED's version of "Ratpack" and BOUNCING SOULS' rendition of "Good Lookin' Out" — are available for listening on the Sick Of It All's MySpace page for the CD.
"Our Impact Will Be Felt" will hit shelves in the United States on April 24 through Abacus Recordings and features such additional heavy hitters such as SEPULTURA, RISE AGAINST, BLEEDING THROUGH, IGNITE and UNEARTH.
Each week leading up to the album's release there will be two new songs streaming for fans to listen to and get an inside preview of the album.
