Come is a cult American alternative rock band, formed in Boston by Thalia Zedek (vocals, guitar), Chris Brokaw (guitar, vocals), Arthur Johnson (drums), and Sean O’Brien (bass). Brokaw and Zedek had been introduced by a mutual friend in Boston shortly before Zedek moved to New York to join legendary noise rockers Live Skull in 1986. They stayed in touch, and Brokaw briefly played in Zedek’s side project Via before forming the influential slowcore group Codeine.
Come’s first release was “Car” (backed with “Last Mistake”), the August 1991 installment in the first volume of Sub Pop’s Singles Club. The single made them one of the most highly touted new acts on the underground scene, and there was more than one label eager to release the band’s first full-length effort (Eleven Eleven, 1992). The album was a great success with both critics and fellow musicians, and tours followed with Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr., Sugar, and Pavement, among others. After the release, Brokaw left Codeine, devoting himself full-time to Come.
After a successful European tour in 2022, Come is looking forward to touring Europe again in 2023 with the original line-up of Brokaw, Johnson, O’Brien, and Zedek.
