Coheed and Cambria reveal new album cover + details

CandCCoheed and Cambria have revealed the cover and track list for their forthcoming album, ‘The Color Before The Sun,’ which will be out on October 9 via 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. You can see the cover and track listing below.

While the most conceptually abstruse Coheed records have always had a foundation in reality, ‘The Color Before The Sun’ is the first time Claudio Sanchez exposes 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.

Roadside Graves announce new EP

Roadside GravesRoadside Graves will release ‘Acne/Ears,’ their fifth proper full length and first to be released via Don Giovanni Records. The members of Roadside Graves are scattered throughout the Tri-State area and even one is in Spain, these are not songs about other people, or influenced by characters in books as they’ve done in the past. This is the band’s attempt to recreate moments in their lives that weren’t necessarily poignant at the time, but grew to be just that as they aged. These are songs lived in and caved in, at times both depressing and care free. Wild and naive. Genuine and dumb. Take a listen to Gospel Radio via YouTube below, which is lifted from ‘Acne/Ears’.
