We've gotten two tastes of new music from Coheed and Cambria so far – the futuristic "Unheavenly Creatures" and the proggy "The Dark Sentencer."
Today, the band is back with a third, equally proggy and futuristic track: "The Gutter." The track comes from their new album, The Unheavenly Creatures out October 5th on Roadrunner. Take a listen:
The album is a concept record, here's how the press release describes it:
Boasting 15 songs over 78 minutes, THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES marks Coheed and Cambria’s furious return to concept albums, the ‘First Act’ in a brand-new story arc set within the backdrop of The Amory Wars universe.
Set for release on October 5, the box set includes an exclusive 80-plus-page hardcover illustrated sci-fi novel with strikingly realistic color imagery by Chase Stone, as well as the complete "Act 1" novella written by frontman Claudio Sanchez and his wife, Chondra Echert. The set also houses a fully wearable hard-plastic mask of the main character in "The Unheavenly Creatures", a CD copy of the album, as well as the exclusive bonus album, "The Crown Heights Demos", showing the songs in their original written form. Additional items include a three-panel fold out poster of expanded album cover art, and "The Unheavenly Creatures Black Card" which will allow all card holders early access to tickets and early entry to COHEED AND CAMBRIA headline dates.
