COHEED AND CAMBRIA have released the official visualizer for their first new single in three years, called “Shoulders”. You can check it out for yourself below.
Frontman Claudio Sanchez stated about the track: “In art, in your career, in relationships… No matter how much you give of yourself or try, you have to accept that not everything in life can be a perfect fit.”
It’s been over two years since COHEED AND CAMBRIA’s 2018 album, “Vaxis I: The Unheavenly Creatures”, was released as the band’s “return to concept” album. After stepping away with a more introspective album in 2015, Sanchez and the band returned to the sci-fi universe of “The Amory Wars” in what was said to be the first of a five-part series of albums. With 2021 upon us, and a major summer tour now announced, the volume of fans’ chatter for “Vaxis 2” and what and when that will entail are loading up the band’s social media pages.
COHEED AND CAMBRIA is a rare band whose music can transcend “scenes” and effortlessly cross genres of rock — from indie to progressive, to metal and pop-punk to classic rock. The band is frequently compared to progressive, operatic rock bands of the ’70s, ala QUEEN, SUPERTRAMP or RUSH, due to their thrilling concept albums that take you on a grand journey of sounds and often clock-in around 110 mins, but still somehow include sugary pop-laden hooks.
COHEED AND CAMBRIA will hit the road for a a co-headlining tour with THE USED in August. Support will come from MEET ME @ THE ALTAR.
