London-based Mercury Prize nominated synth-sax-drum trio featuring DANALOGUE (Dan Leavers), SHABAKA (Shabaka Hutchings) and BETAMAX (Max Hallett), emerged straight from lockdown and went to Peter Gabriel’s Real World decked out studio tucked away in the English countryside, with the help of the band’s longtime engineer Kristian Craig Robinson.
The Comet Is Coming grabs you by the head and doesn’t let go with their relentless and fiery sound, “at once eliciting thoughts of impending doom and possible hope” (Pitchfork). The ingredients: 80s synth models, saxophone and drums, sprinkled with visceral punk rock, interstellar jazz blasts and dance-floor trances.
On their fourth album, Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam, The Comet Is Coming burns brightly, soundtracking our epoch of change and find space in their intuition, skill and improvisation.
Limited to 1000 copies, the VMP exclusive edition of The Comet is Coming's Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam is pressed on Sea Blue vinyl at Precision Record Pressing (PRP). The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil stamped and numbered jacket.
