Bio:

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 Ben Trussell (drums/vocals), Laura McElroy (bass/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, making friends as well as fans.

In 2016 Comrades released “Lone/Grey,” an album which was recorded at Glow in the Dark Studios (My Epic, Underoath, The Chariot), and marries their love for ambient moments with heavy post-hardcore, intentional lyricism and melody with fierce delivery.

Comrades come on strong once again in 2019 with their sophomore release “For We Are Not Yet, We Are Only Becoming.” The full length shows a new level of passion from the husband/wife team and delivers more of the post-hardcore ambient chaos we love.
