With ‘Comeback Kid,’ the Band Perry Will Tell Their Side of the Story
The Band Perry have been teasing their comeback on social media and in a new video released to the press the sibling trio reveal why they've been silent and what we can expect from their new single "Comeback Kid" out Aug. 1.
Neil Perry begins by saying how excited the trio is to be sharing new music. Then Kimberly Perry goes on to thank country radio for all of their support and love that they've sent the band over the past year. She then sets the record straight on the band's silence.
"We know there have been a lot of voices out there trying to tell their version of our story," she says. "We've chosen to remain quiet until now because it was important to us that our actions speak louder than our words. But now it's our turn to tell our own story and the best way we know how with a new song called 'Comeback Kid' headed your way."
Kimberly went on to explain that the new song isn't just the band's narrative of what they've been thinking and feeling over the past year. Instead, "Comeback Kid" is a universal message.
"It's the story of anybody who has walked through a challenging time and have come out through the other side of it better and wiser and so much stronger," she explains.
The lyrics further tell the band's story of the past year and it seems like it was a rough one.
"They like to kick you when you're down / They like it better when you're there on the ground / And up 'til now, I've never made a sound / I bet they've never had a broken heart / But they sure know how to beat the hell out of one," the band sings.
Don't think the Band Perry are calling it quits after a little adversity, though. The chorus shares the band's optimism and ability to keep going despite the obstacles stacked against them.
"'Cause I'mma come back / 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 / I'm a comeback kid."
The Band Perry's "Comeback Kid" will be available Aug. 1. It will be released by UMG Nashville, the group's country record label partner. They've also signed a record deal with Interscope Records and are said to be "transitioning to pop." In March, they split with longtime label Big Machine Music.
