Coheed and Cambria Reveal New Album Details, Unleash ‘You Got Spirit, Kid’ Single
For those of you wondering, yes, Coheed and Cambria are doing more than penning songs based on Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissenting decisions. In fact, the veteran band has been putting the final touches on new music that’s expected this fall.
You can get your first taste of the band’s upcoming album by checking out the upbeat, confetti-filled video for “You Got Spirit, Kid” in the player above. If you like what you hear, the song will be available for digital download globally on July 10.
As for the new disc, it’s titled The Color Before the Sun. Go ahead and circle Oct. 9 on your calendar as that’s the day the album will be released via 300 Entertainment. The disc is notable for the fact that it’s the group’s first non-conceptual release. The band gathered at St. Charles Studio in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce to put together their latest collection.
Speaking about the decision to deviate from the massively arching story of The Amory Wars that has dominated their career, frontman Claudio Sanchez stated, “I kind of want people to know that Coheed can write that sort of record. I’ve always said in the past that there’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.”
Look for Coheed and Cambria back on the road next month. Dates can be seen below and tickets can be purchased here. There are a handful of Euro dates with the band saluting their In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 disc.
