The Comet is Coming - Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery

There are going to be some massive shifts in our own lifetime as life begins to transcend biology… so let’s at least find some essential truths and inner peace so we can make wise decisions.
— Betamax

No sooner had we announced that the Jazz life-force The Comet Is Coming are joining us this year as our Saturday night headliner, the three-piece have announced a new album this Spring on the iconic Impulse! imprint.

Featuring saxophonist King Shabaka (Shabaka Hutchings) keys and synth player Danalogue (Dan Leavers) and drummer Betamax (Max Hallett), the record “aims to answer universal questions with universal truths” shares the label. A 21st century take on spiritual jazz that is part Alice Coltrane, part Bladerunner is the band’s follow up to their Mercury nominated 2015 debut. The album arrives with lead single Summon The Fire, a heads-down electronic groove. (stream)

“King Shabaka's saxophone lines veer from lethal melody through to all out noise, while the tumbling arrangement is hewn from its own solitary realm.” - Clash
