Comadre



Comadre is a band from Redwood City, a suburb of San Francisco, California, comprised of former members of Heartcrosslove, One’s Own Ruin, and Light This City. Their sound is a shoot-off of hardcore and punk, played fast and chaotic with an abundance of energy, but with a large focus on melody and tunefulness as well. Their influences can perhaps best be shown by the covers the band has performed live, by groups such as Rites of Spring, Refused, Kid Dynamite, and Suicide File.
After playing a handful of shows and releasing a three-song demo under the moniker Coffin, the band changed their name to Comadre in the fall of 2004. The word comadre, in addition to being loosely translated as “godmother,” also is a slang-term for anyone not related by blood to be a part of another’s family.
Since their formation, the band has released two LPs (“The Youth”, “Burn Your Bones”), one EP (“Songs About the Man”), a Split LP (with the german band Trainwreck), and a Discography tape (which doesn’t include the Trainwreck split). They have also extensively toured the United States of America, Japan and Europe, in America most commonly with Los Angeles-based cinemagrind band Graf Orlock, and in Japan with hardcore band Endzweck.
