THE BROTHERS COMATOSE
Whether traveling to gigs on horseback or by tour bus, Americana mavens The Brothers Comatose forge their own path with raucous West Coast renderings of traditional bluegrass, country and rock ‘n’ roll music. The five-piece string band is anything but a traditional acoustic outfit with their fierce musicianship and rowdy live shows reminiscent of stadium rock concerts. In fall 2017, “Campfire Caravan” featuring The Brothers Comatose, Mipso, and The Lil Smokies hosts three of today’s foremost emerging indie Americana bands as they trek across the United States to more than 30 cities. “Campfire Caravan” honors the musicians’ early days playing music, when they’d perform for friends and family in basements, living rooms, and around campfires. “Campfire Caravan” celebrates the American tradition of gathering communities around music.
Following three critically acclaimed full-length studio albums (Songs From The Stoop, Respect The Van, City Painted Gold), the five-piece string band disrupts the traditional album cycle and focuses their 2017/2018 release schedule on a series of strategically released songs. Produced by indie-rock legend John Vanderslice, the first four new songs to be released in 2017 include the sun-soaked new single “Don’t Make Me Get Up And Go” that channels harmony vanguards The Beach Boys.
“Cedarwood Pines” is an early-‘70s-esque alt-country number reminiscent of a George Harrison, post-Beatles sensibility. A new music video for “Cedarwood Pines” captures the band’s recent horseback tour across California’s gold country in the Sierra Nevada Foothills featuring beautiful California vistas, saloon and events center gigs, and the band of brothers loving life out on the range with their characteristic whimsical charm.
“Get Me Home” reflects the struggle for commitment and fidelity in a relationship that has to survive the rigors of artists hitting the road while their partners are at home. Life as a nationally touring act has its extreme highs and lows. As the days go on with show after show, relationships must bear increasing distance, temptations, and loneliness. Despite crazy schedules and differing experiences between two lovers, “Get Me Home” keeps the gravity of being faithful and remembering the promises made at the center of one’s life while touring the world.
Beautiful acoustic guitar work and crooning baritone vocals from lead singer Ben Morrison opens up “Joshua Tree.” An escapist tale for a couple weighed down by the burdens of big city life, “Joshua Tree” hones in on how simple pleasures become amplified when experienced in a magical desert world such as Joshua Tree, CA. Running through the sand, drinking cold wine, dreaming about the sun, there isn’t a worry in the world. Even with city life weighing you down, “Joshua Tree” celebrates a destination where you can leave your concerns at the door and focus on what’s important.
The Brothers Comatose is comprised of brothers Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals) and Alex Morrison (banjo, vocals), Gio Benedetti (bass, vocals), Philip Brezina (violin), and Ryan Avellone (mandolin). When they’re not headlining The Fillmore for a sold-out show or appearing at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the band is out on the road performing across America, Canada, Australia, and hosting their very own music festival, Comatopia. In 2018, The Brothers Comatose traveled Asia for a month of cultural music exchange and education with American Music Abroad, a program directed by the State Department.
