VAGRANT RECORDS SIGNS THE COMAS!
Vagrant Records Press Release:
"Vagrant Records is proud to announce that The Comas have signed to the label. The Comas are the latest addition to the label’s increasingly diverse artist roster, which includes Dashboard Confessional, Senses Fail, The Eels, Alkaline Trio and Paul Westerberg among others.
The Comas, from Carrboro, NC, released the highly acclaimed album, Conductor, in August 2004 and the band was featured as a “Band to Watch” in Spin Magazine (Oct. 2004) as well as a “New Faces” in Rolling Stone (Nov. 2004). Both magazines named the record to their “Best Albums You Didn’t Hear 2004” lists and Magnet included Conductor as their #3 best album of 2004. Pitchfork Media gave the album an “8 out of 10” and described it as “alternately dreamy and rocking, aching and pissed indie pop… an accomplished pop/rock album.”
The band is heading into the studio in mid-January with producer Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, Mark Gardener). An early summer 2006 release is planned followed by an extensive national tour."
