Brisbane new comers – The Comfort release dark, moody debut EP ‘Ghosts’ on February 14th after turning heads with single ‘Fair Weather’ in late 2014.
The band has received attention in the last 6 months for their killer performances with massive acts including More Than Life (UK), Trophy Eyes (Newcastle), Worthwhile (UK), Endless Heights (Sydney), Breakaway (Sydney), Far Away Stables (Sydney) and Young Lions.
The EP titled ‘Ghosts’ offers everything a melodic hardcore fan craves with the ambient guitar spelling out the emotion and heart that went into the songs all wrapped up in powerful screams and subtle, clean vocals.
‘Ghosts’ is the result of 2 to 5 years worth of writing about two separate journeys and the toxic relationships they entailed.
“Essentially the biggest break up EP of 2015,” said the band jokingly when asked about the EP.
The Comfort will launch ‘Ghosts’ on the 27th of February with an All Ages show hosted by Upstairs at 199 Westend with all proceeds going directly to Beyondblue – charity working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide in the community.
The Comfort consists of Liam Holmes (vocals), Dom Harper (vocals and bass) and Dan Brannon (guitar) bringing honesty and passion back to a scene that for too long has been a shadow of what it should be – with their unique brand of post-hardcore/post-punk, their energetic live show rivals that of The Chariot and Dillinger Escape Plan.
Ghosts is available on bandcamp on the 14th of February found at http://thecomfort.bandcamp.com/.
What people are saying:
“One of the best local bands I’ve heard in a f*cking very, very long time”
– Chris Burt (ex-The Amity Affliction, Sensaii)

Elijah’ trying to do ‘Brand New’, very cool.”
– Jayden Roy (Artery Foundation, ex-Taperjean Records)
“Rarely will I judge a band from their sound check, but right now I’m listening
to a band called The Comfort and it’s f*cking fantastic. Get familiar with
– Jimmy Kleiner (Wasted Years)
“The tones are gorgeous and everything sits well in the mix. It’s not often that bass is audible in heavy music, so it’s a pleasant surprise to have such a rich, voluminous bass tone… – 8/10” – Erised (iprobablyhateyourband.com)
