Coheed and Cambria to release first non-conceptual album

Coheed and Cambria have announced the release of their eighth album, The Color Before the Sun, which will be released via 300 Entertainment, October 9.

This is the first non-conceptual album released by the group, whose first seven albums took place in the science-fictional universe of The Amory Wars.

“I kind of want people to know that Coheed can write that sort of record,” Frontman Claudio Sanchez said in a press release. “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.”

The group is touring North American and European festivals this summer and fall.

Coheed and Cambria's North American tour dates follow:

August 8 - Nashville, TN (Nashville Municipal Auditorium)
August 9 - Atlanta, GA (The Masquerade)
August 28-30 - Denver, CO (National Western Complex)
September 11 -12 - Chicago, IL (Douglas Park)
September 13 - Sterling Heights , MI (Freedom Hill Amphitheater)
September 19-20 - Toronto, ON (Downsview Park)
October 25 - Sacramento, CA (Gibson Ranch)
October 31 - Tempe, AZ (Tempe Beach Park)
November 6-8 - Austin, TX (Auditorium Shores)
