The Brothers Comatose have always been known to do things by their own design, and a tour on horseback is certainly an expedition the band had to encounter first-hand. In mid-October 2016, the five members of The Brothers Comatose and a trusted crew of equine experts all saddled up for a three-show tour throughout California's gold country in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
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. In advance of their showcase at AMERICANAFEST 2017 (Sept. 13 @ The High Watt, 10pm) and the forthcoming "Campfire Caravan" national tour with Mipso and The Lil Smokies, The Brothers Comatose release the debut song in a new series, "Don't Make Me Get Up And Go," produced by indie-rock legend John Vanderslice.
The Brothers Comatose and (((folkYEAH!))) are thrilled to announce the special addition of the T Sisters to the Comatopia 2017 artist lineup. Following the release of their much-anticipated self-titled sophomore album in 2016, the T Sisters are making a name for themselves as one of the West Coast's foremost indie-Americana acts poised to break out in 2017. T Sisters perform at Comatopia following tours with Amos Lee and The Wood Brothers. Hillstomp will no longer perform at Comatopia.
Grown from the heartstrings of the Bay Area, The Brothers Comatose have been delivering a beautiful combination of folk, Americana and bluegrass that has grown with the masses. Brothers Ben and Alex Morrison created the epic folk group after discovering a banjo in their mother’s living room. After that, the group has taken off and played with legendary groups such as Yonder Mountain String Band and Devil Makes Three.
The Brothers Comatose are one of the most exciting bluegrass outfits to emerge in the past decade, and I await each of their stellar releases with bated breath. I first encountered the band at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2015, where I stumbled across the latter portion of their set, the sound of the dueling fiddle and banjo drawing me in from across the sun-soaked fields of Golden Gate Park.

Americana mavens The Brothers Comatose bring their raucous, foot-stompin' live show on the road to premier venues across the West Coast and The Rockies with their Frostbite Tour throughout February and March 2017. The Brothers Comatose tour in support of a new The Covers EP: Volume 2 featuring a genre-hopping mix of rock, pop and country classics.
On their third album City Painted Gold, San Francisco string-benders The Brothers Comatose have deepened their rocking acoustic prowess to new heights. The musical comradery between banjo and guitar-slinging brothers Alex and Ben Morrison renders authentic each time they step onstage.
