NEWS: Coheed and Cambria Reveal The Color Before The Sun Cover/Track List

August 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2015 – Coheed and Cambria have revealed the cover and track list for their forthcoming album, The Color Before The Sun (Oct. 9, 300 Entertainment).


The cover, which features a serene lake with a house disintegrating into the sky, was created by Nick Steinhardt (Touche Amore, Deafheaven) and reflects the story behind the ten-song album.


While the most conceptually abstruse Coheed records have always had a foundation in reality, The Color Before The Sun marks the first time Claudio Sanchez is exposing his raw feelings, narrated from his own perspective – the anxiety of fatherhood, the disorienting feeling of losing a home, the reflections had during early-morning walks. His own story is told through big, bright, driving, colorful songs that beam like power-pop, crunch like vintage ‘90s emocore and float with the expansive feel of space-rock.


Sanchez’s journey is captured not only in the music, but also in a limited edition, deluxe box set available for pre-order as of this morning at www.coheedandcambria.  The extensive collection offers fans two hardcover books: one featuring album lyrics and expansive artwork from The Color Before The Sun, while a separate book documents the the events and emotions of the time with prose and photographs.  Four different pieces of music are housed in the die-cut slipcase: The Color Before The Sun (CD), The Color Before The Sun demos (CD), an in-studio DVD and a clear 7-inch with two non-album demo tracks.  Purchasers also receive an instant download of “You Got Spirit, Kid,” a membership card, a custom house key, a lapel pin, a certificate of authenticity; as well as exclusive, members-only access to new music, videos, concert tickets, merchandise and commentary from the band.
