The Comet Is Coming

About The Comet Is Coming

Identified as Betamax Killer, Danalogue the Conqueror, and King Shabaka -- aliases of drummer Maxwell Hallett, keyboardist Dan Leavers, and saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings -- the Comet Is Coming describe their sound as "apocalyptic space funk." The London-based musicians had several individual outlets prior to their 2013 formation. Emboldened by jam sessions, the Comet Is Coming signed to the Leaf Label, where they issued Prophecy, an intensely rhythmic and animated EP, in 2015. Channel the Spirits, their debut long-player, arrived in 2016 and was nominated for the Mercury Prize. The trio signed to Impulse Records two years later and released Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery in 2019. They followed with Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam in 2022. ~ Andy Kellman
