"Out Of The Coma" is the much anticipated new album by COMUS, their first in over thirty three years.

It features three brand new songs, "Out Of The Coma", "The Sacrifice" & "The Return", through which courses the unmistakable, Stygian DNA of "First Utterance", plus the only known recording of the band playing their legendary "Malgaard Suite", live at a college gig in 1972.

The new songs all feature in the band's current live set, and have been enthusiastically received by audiences.

"The Malgaard Suite" was planned as the follow-up album to "First Utterance", but it was rejected by the band's then-record label.

This recording, made on a mono cassette-player, languished forgotten for some thirty years before being re-discovered and given to the band.

Is an aural artefact, raising tantalising questions as to what COMUS might have become, had their ambition to record it not been thwarted.

COMUS in 2012 consists of five original members, Roger Wootton, Bobbie Watson, Glenn Goring, Colin Pearson and Andy Hellaby, plus reeds-player & percussionist Jon Seagroatt from Red Square.

The album was recorded, mixed and produced by Jon Seagroatt.
