The band originally recorded for The Leaf Label - the full-length debut album Channel The Spirits was nominated for the 2016 Mercury Prize. In 2018 the band signed with Impulse!, and released another two superb albums and a bunch of singles.   The members of the band use the pseudonyms "King Shabaka", "Danalogue", and "Betamax" to respectively refer to saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, keyboardist Dan Leavers, and drummer Max Hallett.

The Comet Is Coming has a planned disband at the end of the current summer festival season, but the trio has decided to do a limited number of autumn shows. One of them is the headline slot on the Bratislava Jazz Days.
