Brothers Comatose

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.

Z2 Entertainment is thrilled to announced the 25th Annual Microbreweries for the Environment feat. The Brothers Comatose with special guests The Drunken Hearts, plus Chain Station on Friday, April 28th. Tickets are on sale 10 a.m. this Friday at bouldertheater.com.

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.

Expansive, uplifting, and just downright beautiful, City Painted Gold is one of the most anticipated records of the coming year – at least amongst the loyal fans The Brothers Comatose had won while touring across the country in support of their past two releases.

Despite their name, the band is anything but Comatose. “It's just one, big, extended Morrison music party,” they say.  Ben and Alex Morrison, guitar and banjo, and lead vocalists, front this rocking string band that has become a West coast headliner and national touring act in a mere four years.
 

It's The Brothers Comatose  first festival and it's coming up in just over 2 weeks in Calpine, CA at the Sierra Valley Lodge ​(45 min north of Truckee). The lineup includes:The Brothers Comatose, ​Hot Buttered Rum, Steve Poltz, The Sam Chase & The Untraditional, The Easy Leaves & The Dixie Giants...plus DJ sets by DJ Big Dwayne and Another Jerk.

It was bound to happen that the San Francisco-based Brothers Comatose, one of the hottest bohemian bluegrass bands on the circuit would wind up pickin’ and grinnin’ from the Terrapin Crossroads stage at Phil Lesh’s lair in San Rafael, California.
