Girl In A Coma To Release ‘Exits & All The Rest’ Backed With US Fall Tour

Girl_In_A_Coma_menuSan Antonio’s Girl In A Coma have left a permanent tattoo on the hearts of thousands with their piercing songs and nuclear performances. They’ve blazed a singular trail since Nina Diaz joined the band at age 13 and have found champions and comrades along the way including Joan Jett who signed them, Morrissey, Sia, Tegan and Sara, The Pogues and Amanda Palmer who have hand selected them for tours.

With their album coming out in just a few weeks, the band has unleashed the new video for album track “Smart” on yesterday.  Watch the “Smart” video on or HERE and for an early taste for the album, listen to it streaming on NPR’s “First Listen all week!

From sharing stages with their heroes to experiencing Arizona’s controversial laws firsthand, the album was born in an especially intense period for the band. “Hope” is a pogo ready punk assault that speaks to the Arizona immigration dispute while daring you to stay still. Album opener “Adjust” is a tale of persecution and a sonic minefield. Nina Diaz’s voice turns from a lament to a growl in a split second while the thundering combination of Phanie Diaz’s drums and Jennifer Alva’s bass rattle your ribcage. “One Eyed Fool” is a fearless and bare declaration of the universal need to be loved. “Cemetery Baby”underscores the bands ability to seduce you with melody no matter how tragic the message. “Smart” showcases GIAC’s own special recipe for a melodic pop song. The stomping rhythm of future GIAC anthem “Control” lays a foundation for Nina’s voice to build empires of heartbreak on. The stamp San Antonio’s music scene has left on the band is all over the album and it’s stabs of punk, tejano, rockabilly, classic rock and roll, rancheras, indie rock and ballads all contributing to a sound that can only be described as Girl in a Coma.

Girl in a Coma are that rare feral band, unaffected by trends, that has managed to stay wild and thrill us at every turn. Exits & All the Rest, their 4th album out November 1 on Blackheart Records, is the most heart-stopping turn yet. Be sure to catch the band taking over the stage live in a city near you!

“one of our favorite up-and-coming bands.”
“San Antonio’s Girl in a Coma construct intense, expansive post-punk workouts that are closer to grunge than bubblegum.”
– LA Weekly
“… a fantastic pop performance with a super-catchy hook, new-wave change-ups and chillingly calculated vocals from Nina Diaz.”
– AOL Spinner
