Love Coma was a Christian rock/alternative group in the early 1990s based in the San Antonio area of Texas. The group disbanded in 1997 following the bankruptcy of its record label.
Critics have compared the band's sound to that of Simple Minds and The Mission UK, and band members cite other influences such as The Waterboys and The 77s. The Dallas Morning News, reviewing the album Language of Fools, wrote that the music is "[s]mart and subtle, seductive even."
