Coheed And Cambria have announced they’ll release a deluxe edition of their 2015 album The Color Before The Sun.

Titled The Color Before The Sun (Deconstructed), it’ll feature 30-tracks, including the album along with demos and other extras. It’s out on August 19 and available for pre-order from the band’s website.

Coheed say: “It features the original album’s 10 songs, both in the studio and in their early acoustic demo form, as well as two bonus acoustic demos that were never recorded in the studio.

“The demos, called ‘Big Beige/4th St,’ were named after Claudio Sanchez’s home ‘The Big Beige’ in upstate New York and his old apartment in Brooklyn’s 4th Street, since he wrote and tracked them in each residence.

“These acoustic demo tracks were previously only made available to core fans who purchased the band’s limited edition deluxe box set, which featured a 76-page physical book.”

The album will also feature seven bootleg tracks which were pulled straight from the soundboard from dates on Coheed’s recent US tour.

The Color Before The Sun was Coheed’s eighth album and their first non-conceptual work.

The band will head out on tour next week for a run of dates across Europe and the UK, before returning to North America for further shows.
