The Band Perry Releases New Single “Comeback Kid”


The Band Perry answers all the rumors about the band and prove the critics wrong with their brand-new single, “Comeback Kid,”  Although the song’s lyrics can be applied to, as Kimberly Perry puts it, “anybody who’s walked through a challenging time and come out on the other side of it better and wiser and so much stronger,” there are a few subtle references that show that maybe this time it is a little personal.

Written by Kimberly Perry and her brothers Reid and Neil Perry, “Comeback Kid” is TBP’s first single since they signed with Interscope Records and Universal Music Group Nashville, the single was released by Mercury Records. The soft driving force is a little less pop and a little more country for the trio.

“I’m a comeback kid / Don’t know why bad things happen, but they did / I don’t think I deserve the hurt I get / But I’m made for it / It’s not the end, no, not the end,” the chorus of “Comeback Kid” goes. “I’m a comeback kid / Down for a minute, I’ll get up again / Looks like I’m breaking, but it’s just a bend / It’s not over yet, ’cause in the end / I’mma come back / I’m a comeback kid.”

A year ago in August 2015 The Band Perry released a pop-heavy single, “Live Forever” which didn’t do well at country radio. In October, the band announced a new album, but that project has yet to be completed. Then, after break up rumors in February, the Band Perry announced in March that they and their former record company, Republic Nashville/Big Machine Label Group, were no longer working together.

“We know there have been a lot of voices out there trying to tell their version of our story. We’ve chosen to remain quiet until now because it was important to us that our actions speak louder than our words,” Kimberly Perry says, “but now it’s our turn to tell our own story [with “Comeback Kid.”]”

The Band Perry will be performing at the WGAR Country Jam on Saturday, August 6 at Black River Landing in Lorain, Ohio.
