Comrades come on strong once again in 2019 with their sophomore release "For We Are Not Yet, We Are Only Becoming." The full length shows a new level of passion from the husband/wife team and delivers more of the post-hardcore ambient chaos we love. "For We Are Not Yet..." drops June 7.
You can hear their new single "Fault Lines" here:
From their beginnings as an instrumental post-rock band, Comrades has consistently created music that is both aggressive, ambient, complex, and emotional. Drawing from their diverse musical backgrounds, band members Ben Trussell (drums/vocals), Laura McElroy (bass/vocals), and Joseph McElroy (guitar) create music that they feel passionately about, and draft a space for the listener to take part in. Their passion and energy continues into their intense and sometimes chaotic live show. As a part of the DIY touring community since 2009, the east-coast based trio (now from Colorado) has been able to share their music all over North America, making friends as well as fans.
In 2016 Comrades released "Lone/Grey," an album which was recorded at Glow in the Dark Studios (My Epic, Underoath, The Chariot), and marries their love for ambient moments with heavy post-hardcore, intentional lyricism and melody with fierce delivery.
