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.

August 8 - Nashville, TN (Nashville Municipal Auditorium)
