Coheed & Cambria vocalist and guitarist Claudio Sanchez has confirmed in an interview with Consequence of Sound that the band is working on new material. The new record will be the band's follow-up to their 2018 album Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures, and will be what Sanchez calls a forward-thinking album.
"I'll be honest. A lot of times, with bands who've been around and built a strong fanbase like we have, I think there might be a tendency, intentionally or unintentionally, to try to give the fans what they want and not take too many risks," he said.
"But after making music for so long and entering a pandemic, we didn't want limitations to the creative process. The [next] record is going to be what I hope people perceive this band to be in 2021/2022."
Sanchez later added that the new album is influenced by his son "and navigating parenthood within this strange new world we all found ourselves in."
