Today marks the release of the highly anticipated second volume of 

prog-rockers Coheed and Cambria’s double album, The Afterman:

Descension.  The record, which a stream of which was made available

yesterday on Rolling Stone’s website, is available now on itunes via 

Hundred Handed/Everything Evil. 

 

Volume I of the band’s epic double album, The Afterman: Ascension,

debuted at #5 on the Billboard charts with its release on October 9, 2012.

The band recently stopped by Conan to perform the lead single off the

album, ‘Dark Side of Me’.  

 

In the story arc of The Afterman: Descension, we continue the conceptual

storyline from volume one, where Sirius Amory, i.e, “The Afterman” is a

scientist/cosmonaut who goes on a celestrial mission and makes what is 

arguably the most important discovery ever known to mankind.  But upon

his return, he discovers his ambitiousness may have brought him fleeting

fame, but also tragic repercussions.  

 

The band kicked off their nationwide headlining tour this week with two

SOLD OUT shows at the 930 Club in Washington DC.  This tour will also

include stops at The Wiltern in Los Angeles and a landmark show to close

out the US tour at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on March 16th. 

Tickets for all stops on the tour are on sale now!
