Comets On Fire will play their first live shows in 5 years this November, as they return from their hiatus.

The Santa Cruz band will play their first show together since 2008 at the White Horse Inn on 26th November in Oakland, California. They'll then head to the UK to play ATP's Netil House Take Over in London on 29th November and a performance at ATP's End of An Era Part 2" on 30th November at Camber Sands.

Their return comes after they started playing again in Ben Chasny's backing band for the Six Organs of Admittance album, Ascent. They continued to write and jam after the sessions.

Writing on their blog, singer and guitarist Ethan Miller said:

"We feel that Barry Hogan and the ATP co. have played a great part in the success and general "fun" of Comets on Fire and we want to ride that holiday camp train one more time. We have great Technicolor memories of the holiday camp festivals put on by ATP and not just the moments on stage or palling around with other artists in a drunken haze but also Utrillo swinging from the chandelier in our chalet until it dislodges from the ceiling and sends him flying down on the glass table top, kids we've never seen before storming our trailer apartment at 3am and then kicking the bathroom door open because they couldn't figure out how to open it (yes, it was locked, someone was inside (multiple people actually, passed out), spending long days off laying around on the picnic benches in the courtyard drinking wine and eating English cheese fresh off the southern farms and of course seeing some of the most astounding band lineups in the history of rock music crammed into one weekend on 3 different stages.

"I believe in the day and a half we were at the last ATP Comets attended I saw the Stooges, Sonic Youth, The Melvins, Peter Brotzmann, Flipper, Sun City Girls, Dinosaur Jr - and that's with falling asleep early the first night due to drunkenness and jet lag and leaving at dawn Sunday morning...the shit that a fan can see with a 3 day pass and a blood transfusion on the morning of the 3rd day is absolutely mind boggling.

"So anyhow, we're doing it again. F**k it!!! ATP is a blast, see you there."
