Comic book superheroes turned pop-punk band, Four Year Strong, roll into Xtreme Wheels tonight (Oct 7) with Canadian hardcore-punk act Comeback Kid. 2010 has been a busy year for both bands. In March Four Year Strong released their third studio record, Enemy of The World, a pit thrasher’s fantasy full of group sing a longs, chugging guitar breakdowns and speedy punk rock drums. The record is their follow up to 2009’s cover album, Explains It All, an ode to the 1990’s featuring covers of the Smashing Pumpkins, Alanis Morrissette, Third Eye Blind and Everclear among others. Meanwhile Comeback Kid is fresh off the release of their new record, Symptoms + Cures, an album that lands them on the heavier side of the post-hardcore spectrum with thick, dissonant chord changes and the guttural screams of vocalist Andrew Neufeld. On this tour, dubbed the Tonight We Feel Alive! Tour, Four Year Strong have vowed to dedicate a song to you. Yes you. All you have to do is go to their Facebook page, request a song and show up to the concert. They will play at least one request every night and dedicate it to the requester.
