JoJo Worthington Shares New Single “The Divide”
The space between opposite opinions can seem so huge. I think we’ve really thrown it out of proportion. We should still be able to converse, respect and ultimately agree to disagree when it comes to most topics. It just felt like the news and social media just wanted to continue driving this huge divide between political identities.
You know in movies when there’s an earthquake and the earth splits open and it separates the protagonist and the love interest and then sometimes you see people fall in the gap? It’s kinda about the people in the gap and trying to find a home there. – JoJo Worthington

COMA HOLE are streaming the entirety of their debut self-titled EP over at Metal Injection. The EP will be released this Friday on all streaming platforms.
The band comments:
“We are beyond stoked to be releasing our debut EP Coma Hole. We’ve diligently worked on carving our own sound over the past three years, attempting to traverse through upbeat grooves, aggressive high-energy riffage, and incorporate some droning, heavily hypnotic melodies. The album focuses on the existential struggle of self worth, identity, and mortality, which is all woven tightly together through natural archetypes in the lyrical wordplay as well as the cover art. As only two people, we are a small band trying to craft a big sound and aspire to blend our dynamic and style seamlessly with our lyrical themes. Steve and I hope this collection of recordings hits every mark on the musical spectrum and is as enjoyable to listen to for others as it was for us to create it.”
