Coheed and Cambria are giving us another taste of their upcoming, double-CD, sixth studio album. The band has posted a stream of the album’s title track, “ The Afterman ,” at RollingStone.com.
Frontman Claudio Sanchez says that the songwriting process for the album was inspired by the death of his wife’s close friend. "She found out about it through Facebook, which is the most impersonal way to receive this intensely personal news," Sanchez tells Rolling Stone . "Later that night, I sat down and just started writing a song. It became the album's title track, from the point of view of her experience. Everything else followed from there."
The Afterman: Ascension , will be available in stores on October 9. The second album, The Afterman: Descension , is slated for release in February 2013.
