    Coheed and Cambria have announced an upcoming double album! The first of which is titled “The Afterman: Ascension” and will be released October 9, 2012 followed by it’s second volume, “The Afterman: Descension” slated for release in February 2013.


    The Afterman: Ascension,’ will be available on both physical and digital platforms October 9, 2012 via Hundred Handed/Everything Evil, and distributed through Fontana/Ingrooves.

    From the press release:

    A deluxe version of the ‘The Afterman’ will include a hardcover coffee-table book with expansive art by Heidi Taillefer and Nathan Spoor with collaborative written work from singer/creator Claudio Sanchez and writer Peter David that will create a song by song experience. David previously worked with Sanchez on the prose novel adaptation of the band’s 2010 album “Year of the Black Rainbow,” and the graphic novel adaptation of their 2003 album “In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 (which reached #4 on the New York Times Bestsellers list for graphic novels earlier this year).” All the band’s titles, including ‘The Afterman,’ fall into a grand sci-fi story arc called ‘The Amory Wars.”


    Musically, ‘The Afterman’ sees the band perfecting their powerhouse progressive rock, soul and even pop landscapes. The dual release also marks the return of original drummer Josh Eppard, who the band parted ways with in 2006, bringing with him his benchmark percussive grooves. Coheed and Cambria self-financed and co-produced ‘The Afterman,’ alongside Michael Birnbaum and Chris Bittner, who produced the band’s first 3 albums, in Woodstock, NY. The album was mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, The Shins, Foster the People) and Ryan Williams (30 Seconds To Mars).


    “This is without a doubt, the most honest record I’ve ever written,” says Sanchez. “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,” he continues,” 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 (“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.”

    Following the album announcement, a number of tour dates in the Northeast US and Europe have gone up for sale at Cinderblock

    Okay now when do we get our first song? Another countdown probably coming fairly soon I'd imagine. Oh ya, and I'm excited as fuck! Kinda sucks the double album is getting two separate release dates but hey, I'll take that over just a single album with a single release date any day :)

    October is so far away. I can deal with August but fuck you September. Fuck you in your booty.

    I wonder how many tracks/minutes per volume. I'm hoping 12-14 each.

    The Afterman is also the title of a Belgian post apocalyptic film from 1985. It will be interesting to see the context of the title within the album.

    I can hardly contain my excitement. It's going to be one hell of a damn long wait to October 9th...

    Anyone else hear the Pink Floyd influence in the song that's being played over the video?

    I really really like the album name, and the video goes perfectly with the music. I cream myself every time at 1:10. Holy smokes. I feel like Coheed is in a new era. I can't wait to see what comes of this. I'm ready to start throwing money.

    Also, I wonder if the 2nd half of the LP will be called something other than Ascension? Or if the double LP is titled just that - The Afterman: Ascension. Either way, I'm too damn excited.

    Also, I hope they leave the dialogue in the track for the album.

    *writes a check to Claudio. Leaves it blank.

    Also, where did the "Acsension" part come from? It wasn't in the trailer. Also anyone notice the words on the bottom at the end? One said Everything Evil. I didn't catch the other

    I was curious about this too. Maybe they're starting their own label from which to release, since they're off their US label now, and that's the name?

    I'm beyond excited for this. I have a feeling this is going to rejuvenate the story in the music after a somewhat bland YOBR storyline.

    Based off the title "the aftermath" it seems like this is post-destruction of the keywork.

    I assumed "Ascension" is the name of album 1.

    The world link after the video leads to tour dates with 6-8 in the northeast US and 10-12 in Europe just prior to album release.

    The Afterman: Ascension: Volume I: Hundred Handed and Volume II: Everything Evil

    I'm probably way wrong but w/e
