Girl In A Coma Debut Video Of Bowie's "As The World Falls Down"

The San Antonio-based trio, Girl In A Coma, were chosen by Joan Jett herself for her Blackheart Records label and have toured extensively with Morrissey, at the personal invitation of the man who penned the song that inspired their name. After successfully releasing a series of three "Adventures in Coverland" EPs on 7-inch vinyl this April, Girl in a Coma will release these tracks as a full-length CD along with three brand new tracks October 19th on Blackheart Records.

Girl In A Coma is thrilled to share a new video, directed by Robert Rodriguez for their cover of David Bowie's "As The World Falls Down."

With "Adventures in Coverland," Girl in a Coma delve further into the band's collective musical history, recording their own versions of classic songs that helped shape the sonic core of Trio B.C., a record which prompted Alternative Press Magazine to rave that the band had "really hit their stride" and Billboard to enthuse that the ladies were "full of swagger and in fine form."

The new songs on the record include a vibrant update of Buffalo Springfield's ‘60s protest anthem "For What It's Worth," an acoustic version of their song "BB" and a new original Girl in a Coma song, "Yo Oigo," which was written to be featured in Robert Rodriguez's new movie "Machete." The band displays their reverence for Selena's music with their amped-up reworking of "Si Una Vez," a stunning highlight of the record, and were honored to perform the song at the 2010 Tejano Music Awards.

Having toured in the past with Morrissey, Sia, Pogues, Cyndi Lauper and more, Girl In A Coma hit the road this Fall wrapping up the tour with several performances with the Dresden Dolls.
