Anticipation for COHEED AND CAMBRIA’s upcoming release, THE AFTERMAN: ASCENSION, is in full force.  The album will be released in Canada on October 9, 2012 on Everything Evil/Universal Music Canada.  Fans can pre-order the album on iTunes at the following link: http://itunes.apple.com/ca/preorder/the-afterman-ascension/id554223864

True to Coheed’s restlessly exploratory nature, the nine-track Ascensionfinds the New York-based band—singer-guitarist Claudio Sanchez, founding guitarist Travis Stever, bassist Zach Cooper and drummer Josh Eppard—staking out exciting new ground. “With all of our older albums, my thing was always figuring out how to fit my life into the Amory Wars concept,” Sanchez says. “I knew where each one sat in terms of the story. Whereas with this one, I allowed my life—my experiences and what I was going through—to frame the concept.
The Afterman: Ascension is the first volume of a remarkable new double album collectively called The Afterman.  Volume two, titled The Afterman: Descension’will follow in February 2013.  The storyline behind The Afterman double-album, depicts the life of celebrated cosmonaut/astronomer Sirius Amory, as he embarks on a journey into space, where he makes arguably the greatest scientific discovery known to mankind.  The first volume, ‘Ascension’, charts Sirius’ sci-fi journey into the stars of the alternate universe known well by Coheed fans as “Heaven’s Fence.”  The second volume, ‘Descension’, shows his fall back to his home planet and the not so warm welcome he receives, followed by a tragedy that unfolds from there.
Fans who pre-order “The Afterman Limited Deluxe Box Set: Amory Award Edition” will receive digital downloads of both AFTERMAN volumes, ‘Ascension’ and ‘Descension,’ when they are released, a VIP tour laminate that allows early entry at all Coheed headlining shows, a nearly 2 hour long documentary of Coheed on the road, a 78 page story, lyric, an artwork book, and much more. Over 5,000 ‘deluxe’ pre-orders were sold on the first day of availability.  For more info, visit: http://coheedandcambria.com/
COHEED AND CAMBRIA have been overseas performing at both Reading and Leeds Festivals, and will return to the U.S. for a string of performances including a date in Toronto.  Other Canadian dates will be announced when available.

Canadian Tour Date:
09.20 – Toronto, ON – Mod Club w/3 (SOLD OUT)
