The Brothers Comatose have announced their fourth studio album Ink, Dust, and Luck. Available worldwide June 15th, 2018, the album is a collection of 10 singles that mark the California bluegrass band's debut with indie label AntiFragile Music. The five-piece act's newest recordings put an undeniable stamp on their sound: a raw, raucous set of West Coast renderings of bluegrass, americana, and rock n' roll.
Deviating from their latest studio efforts (Songs From The Stoop, Respect The Van, City Painted Gold) where The Brothers Comatose self-produced and enlisted the technologies of the modern studio, on Ink, Dust & Luck the band worked with producer, indie-rock legend John Vanderslice, and recorded direct to two-inch analog tape.
“Ink, Dust & Lust is a snapshot of a band that’s truly found their collaborative voice,” says Ben Morrison, lead singer/guitarist of The Brother Comatose. “For the first time, every single band member contributed songs to the album. We took the old school, just straight to tape approach, and I think the raw energy really shines through. Vanderslice is a madman in the studio, we couldn’t have done this recording without his genius intuition supporting us all the way through.”
The band's most recent single “Sugar Please” features Americana songstress, Nicki Bluhm. A homage to classic country duets of the past, Bluhm expresses her admiration for the group: "Ben and The Brothers Comatose sure can write those sweet love songs from the perspective of the road. I have an appreciation for that livin’ out here myself.”
