On Sept. 28, Compassion Gorilla takes the stage.

With their third studio album, Coalesce, Compassion Gorilla offers up a unique interpretation of diverse and worldly musical styles, weaving together earthy and folkloric sounds with sophisticated and punchy modern sensibility. The album was released Sept. 14.

On tour promoting this new release the band boasts a six-piece lineup that includes Daniel Cryderman (trombone and vocals), Chris Fretwell (guitar, charango, requinto and vocals), Dan Beer (drums), Suzanne Stirling (trumpet), Ariel Palacio (accordion), and Brin Porter (bass).
