Pre-order this beast here :   - Handnumbered, limited to 500 copies (side A/B on black vinyl - side C/D on white vinyl), CD and “special” inserts included. All orders will ship within four weeks.




Fear of musical routine. Will of pushing back boundaries with a classical rock instrumentation. Astounding violence executed in one of the most distinguished ways. Incredibly meticulous attention to detail. With so much selection criteria, very few could pull this all off whilst harnessing a consistent sound. And if there's one band that has always sweat blood and water to access there in the midst of bands like Starkweather, Breach, Today Is The Day, Neurosis, Oxbow and Converge, then it's without a doubt COMITY. A more than deserved sacrament after fifteen years of a spanner thrown in the works, between disillusions, line-up & record label issues amongst many other aborted plans - going as far as making them momentarily give up in 2007. COMITY have behind them fifteen years of noise and incredible live performances (with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Cave In, Today Is The Day...) not to mention a discography with a fascinating progression which propel the band to the rank of one of France's biggest glories at the release of their second album "As Everything Is A Tragedy" in 2006.

"The Journey Is Over Now", their first full-length in five years, shows a band more ruthless and musically ambitious than ever before. Four tracks delivering 52 minutes of an oppressive but finely worked chaos : a maze of winding riffs and unique melodies.

"Because there's nothing for them here, they search elsewhere. A long journey which will finally lead them to nowhere. Still inspired by Philip José Farmer's novel "To Your Scattered Bodies Go", lyrics are based upon the will of living and the endless quest of absolution. An ironic mise en abyme of musical composition : abstract, without end nor goal. Our goal has always been to convey a multitude of emotions, of feelings with maximum intensity. Whether it's riffs, structures or through integration of new instruments : lap steel on all tracks, "distorted" saxophone, "grinded" sitar, bass synthesizer or choirs & vocals interwoven and inseparable, we always had the need to write and play this music, without bounds nor strains. Once again recorded live with the same will to sound simply rock, without frills and as less overproduced as possible. We choose to keep a standard tuning, a less saturated sound, without compression and with natural-sounding acoustic drums. Now that this project is complete, we want to share our music on stage with as many people as we can. This time, free downloads will be distributed to put sharing and accessibility within the level of our investment."

Recorded and mixed between Laval and Paris by sound sorcerers Amaury Sauvé & Sylvain Biguet, mastered by Carl Saff, this fine-cut monolith of darkness shows a band in constant soul-searching and who has been able to push their art in ways they never would have dreamed possible. Exhausting in their ability to bring fluidity and atmosphere to their extremely dense compositions, "The Journey Is Over Now" reminds that COMITY is, more now than ever before, a band impossible to pigeon hole. This is extreme rock'n roll, and nothing else.
