A St Albans based band are launching their debut short album, known as an EP, next month following the success of a song they published on YouTube in response to England’s efforts at the World Cup.
The band, TV Coma, will launch their album, Body Negativity, in September ahead of a launch show at The Horn on Victoria Street on Saturday 8 September from 8pm to 11pm.
The band which is made up of locals Lee Troy, Max Troy, Jamie Rider and Robert Duke have already tasted success as their song I Don’t Like Football has already had over 12,000 hits on YouTube.
Taking musical influence from the likes of Jeff Rosenstock, Charly Bliss, The Muffs, Frankie Valli, Blur and more, TV Coma are a self-hating millennial rock band.
Wallowing in a void of deep unemployment, TV Coma started life as an outlet for the frustrations of brothers Max and Leo, who were trapped in the draining daily slump of a life without gainful occupation that will be all too familiar to many young creatives. Their resulting debut EP, Body Negativity, is an entirely DIY affair with all six songs written and demoed by Leo, Max and Jamie.
The band then convened in Max’s bedroom and recorded their individual parts, before Max became a solitary production warrior, mixing the whole EP in two weeks.
Max Troy from TV Coma told My St Albans News: “We are really excited to launch our first EP and The Horn is a great place to introduce it.
“We have played there a few times and we hope lots of people will come out to see us on 8 September, which is a day after the launch of Body Negativity.
“The response to the I Don’t Like Football has been great. We never liked football when we were younger but with England did so well and it became obvious we should write a song.”
