Yes, we're about a week late in sharing the news, but announcements this grand cannot be overlooked. Coheed & Cambria announced their new album Axis II: A Window of the Waking Mind to be released on May 27th, entering the second chapter of the band's five-part Vaxis story arc, the first of which was 2018's The Unheavenly Creatures. As you can tell by Chase Stone's movie poster-esque cover illustration and the narrative driven music video for the anthemic single The Liars Club, this is far from your standard album release, and rightfully so as Coheed & Cambria tread down a unique path of towering creative ambition.


In addition to the album announcement and the expansive collector's edition it boasts, Claudio Sanchez and co. are set to embark on a new headlining North American Tour alongside Dance Gavin Dance and Mothica this summer, rounding out one strong bill.
