Love Coma was a Christian rock/alternative group in the early 1990s based in the San Antonio area of Texas.[1] The group disbanded in 1997[2] following the bankruptcy of its record label.[3]

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.[1] The Dallas Morning News, reviewing the album Language of Fools, wrote that the music is "[s]mart and subtle, seductive even."[4]
