Coheed and Cambria recently released The Unheavenly Creatures’ 10-minute prog manifesto, “The Dark Sentencer,” which was leaked to fans by frontman Claudio Sanchez along with the opening paragraphs from the album’s aforementioned novella. “’The Dark Sentencer’ opens with prickly guitars that build into a stadium-sized thump,” noted Rolling Stone while Revolver declared, “the soaring song with its rolling guitar riff could soundtrack the montage to any intergalactic underdog story.” Consequence of Sound hailed “The Dark Sentencer” adding, “Gang vocals and ephemeral harmonies underscore the band’s trademark shredding.”
Furthermore, Coheed and Cambria celebrated the 60th anniversary of NASA earlier this month by joining the National Symphony Orchestra as guest performers at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The event – NSO Pops: Space, The Next Frontier – featured music inspired by space—both fact and fiction—and saw Coheed and Cambria deliver a poignant performance of their song “Here To Mars” backed by the NSO Pops. The performance has quickly garnered over 700K views on The Kennedy Center’s Official Facebook.
This July Coheed and Cambria will set out on a U.S. co-headline mostly-outdoor tour with Taking Back Sunday and special guests The Story So Far. The 28-city U.S. tour runs July 6th – August 12th. Tickets for all dates are on sale now. For tickets and more information please visit www.CoheedandCambria.com.
Comprised of Claudio Sanchez (Vocals / Guitar), Travis Stever (Guitar), Josh Eppard (Drums) and Zach Cooper (Bass), Coheed and Cambria has gripped listeners and press around the globe with their visionary compositions and conceptual mastery.
