Girl in a Coma – “Walkin After Midnight” – Music Video

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 19 on Blackheart Records.

Girl In A Coma has released a new video for their cover of Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight,” directed by band member Jenn Alva. The video highlights the band’s ability to seamlessly travel through genres always offering their signature electrifying. seductive touch. Check it out on AOL Spinner where it premiered today or HERE.

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 an 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, The Pogues, Cyndi Lauper, Tegan and Sara and more, Girl In A Coma hit the road this Fall wrapping up the tour with several performances with the Dresden Dolls. Be sure to catch the band taking over the stage live in a city near you!
