Coheed And Cambria will release their eighth album The Color Before The Sun in October – and it’ll be their first-ever non-concept title.
Claudio Sanchez and co have launched a lyric video for lead track You Got Spirit, Kid, which becomes available as a digital single on July 10.
It’s the first time the band have stepped away from setting their albums around The Amory Wars, their science fiction saga about the lives of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon.
Sanchez says: “I want people to know that Coheed can write that sort of record. I’ve always said ithere’s never been a limitation on the band – it makes no sense to me to draw a line in the sand and never cross it.”
The Color Before The Sun was recorded at St Charles Studio in Nashville, and produced by Jay Joyce. Coheed hit the road next month with dates in the US and Europe, plus a standalone appearance at the UK;s Heavy Fest:
