Are you as excited about the upcoming Coheed and Cambria show with Taking Back Sunday at the AMP on Tuesday, July 31 as we are? If you read our recent preview of the incredible Cox Summer Concert Series, you know that we absolutely cannot wait for this show! When it was originally announced, there was no real indication that there was new Coheed material in the works to coincide with the tour, but that is no longer the case with today’s release of new single, “The Dark
Sentencer”, which you can stream here. The band is already performing the song live, so it’s probably safe to assume that we’ll hear it at the AMP this summer, possibly alongside other new material. Nothing else is definitively known about a new album at this time, but the band recently signed with Roadrunner Records and it’s likely that they’ll have a record out before the end of the year.

Prior to 2015’s “The Color Before The Sun”, Coheed and Cambria’s lyrics focused exclusively on the story of “The Amory Wars”, an original sci-fi narrative created by Coheed front man Claudio Sanchez. “The Amory Wars” is also a long-running comic book series, written by Sanchez and currently published by BOOM! Studios. Northwest Arkansas resident and current Marvel Comics artist Aaron Kuder got his big break into the comics industry providing art for several issues of Sanchez’s epic story. The lyrics of “The Dark Sentencer” revisit the story of “The Amory Wars”, and musically it’s also a bit of a return the heavier, prog-influenced sound of the band’s earlier albums.

Please stay tuned to Shindigmusic for all the latest Coheed and Cambria news ahead of their long-awaited Northwest Arkansas debut performance!
