Year of the Black Rainbow

Hey Everybody,

Happy Holidays and all that. We know you have been waiting patiently for Coheed info for 2010, so we hope this fills your hunger for now:

Our new album will be titled, “Year of the Black Rainbow,” and is set for release in April 2010 and will be followed by a headline tour of the US, and then on to Europe and the UK for festivals and such.

As most of you know, the new album will be the “Origin Story” or “The Prequel,” and likely the final story of the ongoing concept story of “The Amory Wars”

With “Year of the Black Rainbow,” we will be releasing a deluxe package that includes a NOVEL OF THE SAME NAME. Not a graphic novel, but a full 300+page prose novel, which will tell the origins of Coheed and Cambria, and much more.  There will be no mystery to this story, you will be able to explore it like never before.  Presales will start near the end of December, exact date and pricing to be announced soon.

Producing this record is:
Atticus Ross http://www.ninwiki.com/Atticus_Ross
And Joe Baressi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Barresi

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.
Some song titles are: “Here We are Juggernaut,” “The Broken,” “Pearl of the Stars,” and “Guns of Summer.”

Co-writing the book with Claudio is Peter David http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_David

The album will be released through Columbia Records/Sony in North America. For the rest of the world, Sony has licensed the rights to Roadrunner Records, who we feel will better make our music available in those territories, and opening up the potential for us to come to countries we rarely or never have been to before. We are very excited.

Can’t wait til you can experience it.

Peace,
Co&Ca;

so where does Prize Fighter Inferno fit into all of this cause i know that Claudio said that PFI acted as a prequel to The Amory Wars. oh wait nevermind Year of the Black Rainbow would come before Second Stage Turbine Blade and PFI would come before Year of the Black Rainbow right? could someone clarify please?

I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!! I was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to find out when the album would be coming out. I couldn't sleep last night cause i was so excited. COHEED & CAMBRIA IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE come to Corpus Christi i didn't get to see the show last year.

dude will you guys be selling the package with the book and album in stores? because if so id like to know what stores exactly!

Awesome title choice... (as always though) This e-mail made my freakin' week! I am so excited and happy for y'all. Chris has made himself at home with Co&Ca, and your sound has grown and progressed with every turning page in this fantastically original and beautiful concept. I was one of the Neverender Children of the Fence, so you can damn-well guarantee that I'll jump on this pre-order the second it's announced! Keep up the great work that y'all do! Can't wait for more news! CenturyTel Center in Shreveport, LA. will sell out in a heartbeat if y'all add it to your tour next summer! Congratulations on the wedding too Claudio! ~Jon in Bossier City, LA.
