From their beginnings as an instrumental post-rock band, Comrades has consistently created music that is both aggressive, ambient, complex, and emotional.
Drawing from their diverse musical backgrounds, band members Laura McElroy (bass/vocals), John Gaskill (drums/vocals) and Joseph McElroy (guitar) create music that they feel passionately about, and draft a space for the listener to take part in. Their passion and energy continues into their intense and sometimes chaotic live show. As a part of the DIY touring community since 2009, the east-coast based trio (now from Colorado) has been able to share their music all over North America, and Europe making friends as well as fans.
Their second full length, “Lone / Grey,” recorded at Glow in the Dark Studios (My Epic, Underoath, The Chariot), marries their love for ambient moments with heavy post-hardcore, intentional lyricism and melody with fierce delivery.
