Bullet Tooth records just announced the signing of Chicago’s KNOCKOUT KID, a pop-punk hardcore band that have spent the last year touring the US and Canada extensively to support their self-released debut, ICWTJD. Comprised of Wade Hunt (vox), Jacob Fuerst (guitar/vox), Karl Nickolov (guitar/vox), John Jacobs (drums), and Nick Collis (bass), Knockout Kid has already sparked comparisons to Four Years Strong, A Day To Remember, and the Wonder Years. The band hit the studio earlier this year to add their own twist on the sound, and the debut twelve song album, Manic, will be released worldwide on Bullet Tooth in early 2016 on LP/CD/digital.
The album features a guest vocal from Trey Sexton (Kid Liberty) on the track “Jurassic Park After Dark.”
You can view the official announcement video below, as well as the band’s statement.
Speaking on the signing, the band said, “Joining the Bullet Tooth family is a dream come true for KNOCKOUT KID. Having grown up on bands from Josh and Bullet Tooth, it’s only right that they release our most ambitious album to date. The future has never been brighter.”
