ONTARIO TOUR DATES THIS MONTH
TORONTO, ON – November 2, 2023 – Today, Toronto five-piece indie-rock outfit, Long Range Hustle, team up with Chicago-based alt-pop artist, Tedious & Brief, to release a beautifully melancholic rendition of the band's heavy-duty head-banger, Comeback Kid. Originally appearing on their 2022 album, I am alive, but only if you say I am, the remix - Comeback Kid (Redux) - sees Long Range Hustle take on a more electronic-influenced approach to the song. Listen to Comeback Kid (Redux) here - out now via Sans Shoes (Canada) / AntiFragile Music (International). Watch the accompanying visualizer, directed by the band's AJ Fisico (drums, vocals), here.
"Comeback Kid was originally written as a slow, contemplative tune reflecting on being caught in absentia during someone's most tragic time of need," shares Paul Brogee (co-lead vocals, guitar, violin). "But when we took it to the studio it turned into a heavy-duty head-banger, so it was a particular pleasure to bring some melancholic yearning back to this song, helped in no small part by Jamie's dark and soulful voice. Typically a very 'live' sounding band, this was our deepest foray yet into more electronic-influenced production, pulling on our love of bands like Sylvan Esso, Purity Ring, and Big Red Machine. We learned a lot working with Tedious & Brief, and I can't wait to see how this project affects our trajectory from here."
Jamie Jacobsen (a.k.a. Tedious & Brief) offers: "Comeback Kid is one of those songs that I heard and immediately thought 'damn, I wish I wrote that song.' So to be asked to feature on it and have some creative liberty as to where the song went dynamically was really special for me. It’s an emotional tune with nostalgic undertones that builds into this beautiful, organized chaos by the end. Through months of long distance collaboration this song morphed into something even cooler than I could have anticipated and I'm really stoked to have been a part of it."
"Even for a track that is supposed to be a return to the songs slower melancholic roots, we couldn't help build it into something with a little grandeur at the end," the band adds.
