Two New Albums from Coheed and Cambria

Coheed and Cambria have announced the release dates of their new opus "The Aftermath". Yes, you read correctly, release dates. The album is a double one that will be released as two single albums. Volume One, "The Afterman: Ascension," will be released on October 9th 2012 and Volume Two, "The Afterman: Descension," in February 2013. The Afterman follows up 2010′s well received "The Black Rainbow."

As with all of their previous work, the albums are part of a greater story set within an alternate universe, and these two are specifically set during "The Armory Wars".

Claudio Sanchez says:
“This is without a doubt, the most honest record I’ve ever written. Though all the songs can be interpreted through our main character in the story, they were initially written in a very spontaneous manner"
"In the past, I’ve always had a predetermined idea of what the story was going to be when I approached the songs. With ‘The Afterman’ being a new story within ‘The Amory Wars’ arc, I allowed the events of my life to drive the concept, and therefore opened up the songwriting to a fuller degree."

You can read more about it in the pages of Rolling Stone. In the meantime, here is the beautiful official trailer for the albums.
