“Though louder and more organic than 2004’s Conductor, it’s definitely the Comas: big, symphonic sound wrought from the super-sized melodies of the Jesus and Mary Chain and the chilly art-rock swirl of Smashing Pumpkins.” – HARP May 2007

(April 24, 2007) The Comas celebrated the release of their latest disc, Spells (Vagrant, 4/17/2007), with a headlining show at Luna Lounge on Friday, April 20th and the announcement of an eastern U.S. tour with Broken West that begins in May.

“We are damn excited to hit the road again!” says singer, songwriter and guitarist Andy Herod of the North Carolina-via-New York City band.

Spells is the band’s fourth full length and first for Vagrant. The Bill Racine (Flaming Lips, Rogue Wave, Mates Of State) produced album was recorded at a “spooky mansion” in the Catskill Mountains and the band’s heavier, cinematic sound is being acclaimed by the press. Spells received a 4-star review in BLENDER, which said, “…the big-screen sweep and high-definition melodies (suggesting Weezer’s sluggish pep buoyed by the Flaming Lips’ hallucinatory orchestrations) make this “malfunctioning android”‘s anthems of depression extra vivid,” and ROLLING STONE commented that “…cuts like “Red Microphones” and “Come My Sunshine” rock confidently, and the big, slow chorus of “Now I’m a Spider” shows they can make with the pretty.”

While at SXSW, The Comas recorded a live session for the up-and-coming website The exclusive songs will be available on Friday, April 27th at

The Comas are Herod, Nicole Gehweiler (guitars, vox), Matt Sumrow (piano, organ, vox), Jason Caperton (bass) and Nic Gonzales (drums).
