Coheed And Cambria’s New Album Is Already 75% Written


Coheed And Cambria frontman/guitarist Claudio Sanchez has made considerable progress on the band’s next studio album and the concept behind it. Appearing recently on MetalSucksThe MetalSucks Quarantinecast, he stated of that:

“I’ve got about maybe 75% worth of a record [written]. The concept is pretty much in a lock. I’ve actually started talking with Chase Stone, who did the last album’s art as well as the companion illustrated novel that went with it. So we’ve been slowly talking about some of the conceptual things and maybe we’ll start bringing this part of the story to life.

Funny, I started this song in September, it was called ‘Hallelujah Quarantine.’ It’s crazy! So in the second part of Vaxis, there’s this criminal organization called The Liar’s Club and they have this thing that sort of travels through the galaxy and they call it The Quarantine, not the actual structure but they have this celebration called The Quarantine.

It’s almost like a cotillion where the young come to party and to decide their fates. But this organization is really just taking these young kids to use them as blood banks.

Thats a very loose part within Vaxis II, this story. Looking at this, I’m like, man, I don’t know if this song is now insensitive for what we’re enduring.

Is this even going to be a part of it? Am I going to have to rename this whole sort of thing that’s happening in the story and rewrite this song? I don’t know.

There are songs. I’m not really all that worried about it. It’s just crazy that I kind of just stumbled upon this tune and I’m like, ‘Aww man. How am I gonna do that one?'”

As you’ve likely put together, the album will be apparent direct follow-up to the band’s latest album, 2018’s “Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures“.
