St Albans power-pop band TV COMA is set to release their debut album next week, a project that has been years in the making.
TV COMA, who are all born and bred in St Albans, will release WUSS on Friday, November 19, after working on the album since 2017.
Like many musicians, bandmates Max and his brother Lee Troy, Jamie Rider and Robert Duke, found a lot of their music production was put on hold for a year due to the pandemic.
Speaking to StAlbansNews, Max said the band, named after ‘Generation Wuss’ an essay by Bret Easton Ellis, are looking forward to sharing their debut album.
He said: “We recorded the album in 2017 down in Southampton with a guy named Neil Kennedy, and since 2017 we have been gearing up towards the release of the album.
“But coronavirus got in the way for about a year and held it off.”
Speaking about their debut album, the band said: “TV COMA look to re-appropriate the word for their own disenfranchised generation by writing punk-flecked millennial pop songs drawn from the personal experiences of co-frontmen and siblings Max and Leo Troy.
“Delving into the psychology of the disoriented 20-to-30-year-old, WUSS will present a scathing, empathetic and essential new record; laying bare all facets of a generation left blinking at the lights of a rapidly changing world that they helped create, but no longer understand.”
WUSS will be available on all streaming platforms such as Spotify from November 19.
The band is also set to play at The Horn alongside Wiink And The Mighty Orchid King on Saturday, December 18.
