Twin brothers playing pop-punk, packed with soaring vocal harmonies and a jumping live show.
Based in Milford, Connecticut, and offering a blend of punk and pop-rock, Cometa was formed by twin brothers Grant [lead vocals, guitar] and Gareth Cometa [lead guitar, vocals]. Since the band's formation, they have recorded 2 albums, 'In Rhyme & Reason' (2013) and 'Radiance' (2015). They've played the 2015 Vans Warped Tour and have opened for such acts as All Time Low, New Found Glory, Rise Against, Story of the Year, and Sevendust.
Born in Manitoba, Canada, the brothers moved to the states in the late 90s and would begin writing songs together during college. "I was fronting my own band and Gareth started playing guitar," says Grant. "My band broke up and Gareth and I started writing together; naturally, we had good musical chemistry." The twins would email each other song ideas and edit each other's work. The result was, as Grant says, "a collection of some pretty bitchin' songs."
After grabbing up roommate Haroon Ramzan [bass/vocals], the band sent song samples to Wes Long [drums/vocals], who quickly joined the project after being found through Facebook. "I got an instant message from a complete stranger. Then I heard the riffs, the chugging, the vocal harmonies, and double bass runs, and I was pretty much sold" says Wes.
The band prides themselves on their energetic live show, songwriting, and connection with their fans. Most of the members have been trained with marching bands during their high school years. Today, you can find them as @cometamusic on all platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Spotify, and apple music.
