The recently (last year) reunited infamous punk rock band, Black Flag, have announced pro skater Mike Vallely as their new frontman. He is the fifth they’ve had. Apparently it didn’t work out with Ron Reyes, who they fired in the middle of a show in Australia. Mike V managed Black Flag last year and actually plays in another band with Greg Ginn called Good For You. He also played a few shows with Black Flag in 2003.

Comeback Kid are set to release a new album, Die Knowing.

It will be the band’s sixth album, which will be released through Victory Records 4 March. You can only pre-order through Victory Records.

The goal with Die Knowing was to really capture the best parts of our live show and put those elements into the album. Lyrically, it’s a reminder to stay hungry while carving your own path, living life to its full potential. This will be the biggest and heaviest sounding Comeback Kid album to date. – Andrew Neufeld

For those who don’t know, Comeback Kid are coming to South Africa and arrive this week!
