Coheed and Cambria: Year of the Black Rainbow 4/13


Coheed and Cambria
Coheed and Cambria have confirmed April 13 as the release date for Year of the Black Rainbow, their heavily anticipated fifth studio album. The eagerly awaited prequel to The Amory Wars tetralogy, Year of the Black Rainbow will be released by Columbia Records in both a standard format and a deluxe edition including a 352-page Year of the Black Rainbow novel, penned by the band's Claudio Sanchez and New York Times Bestselling author Peter David.

Presale orders for the deluxe edition of Year of the Black Rainbow can be placed here.

In addition to the CD and novel, the deluxe edition will include a "Making Of" DVD featuring studio and interview footage as well as a Coheed and Cambria Black Card, which will allow fans early entrance to shows, discounts on band merchandise and exclusive downloads and offers. Sneak peeks at the new album's artwork and other exclusive visuals can be seen here.

Year of the Black Rainbow is produced by Atticus Ross (Nine Inch Nails, Jane's Addiction) and Joe Baressi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool). According to Sanchez, "They have helped us evolve our sound to be more powerful and dynamic than ever and we think it's definitely our best work to date."

The new record also features the studio debut of Coheed and Cambria drummer Chris Pennie, who has been playing alongside Sanchez, guitarist Travis Stever and bassist Michael Robert Todd since 2007, and was featured on Neverender: Children of the Fence Edition, the CD/DVD box set documentation of the fall/winter 2008 four-night stands during which the band played its catalogue in its entirety, one album per night, in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and London.

Year Of The Black Rainbow's release will be preceded by a series of eight intimate club gigs on the Northeastern U.S., four of which are already sold out. Earl Greyhound supports.
