Grandiose as standard for the prog-rockers sixth album.
So, Coheed And Cambria will be releasing their next album in two installments. 'The Afterman: Ascension' will see the light of day on October 08 with 'The Afterman: Decision' coming in February 2013. A teaser trailer for the record can be seen above, bonkers.
The quite geeky might want to know that a deluxe version of the ‘The Afterman’ will be made available at some stage, it will include a hardcover coffee-table book with expansive art by Heidi Taillefer and Nathan Spoor with collaborative written work from singer/creator Claudio Sanchez and writer Peter David that will create a song by song experience.
The extremely geeky might want to know that the records are about a geezer called Sirius Amory, the most celebrated astronomer/scientist in the alternate universe of Heaven’s Fence. Sirius (pronounced “Sy-ruhss”) is credited with the discovery of the energy force (known as The Keywork) that binds the 78 planets of these worlds together. He embarks on the greatest discovery of his existence, and possibly mankind’s. By doing so, what is truly most important to him begins to slip right through his hands.
None of that make any sense to you? Ok, you just need to know that after performances at Reading & Leeds in August the band will play the following UK shows toward the end of the year:
08 - LONDON Koko
09 - GLASGOW ABC
11 - BIRMINGHAM Academy
12 - MANCHESTER HMV Ritz
