Boasting 15 songs over 78 minutes, THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES marks Coheed and Cambria’s furious return to concept albums, the ‘First Act’ in a brand-new story arc set within the backdrop of The Amory Wars universe. The LP was heralded earlier this summer with the arrival of its title track, “Unheavenly Creatures,” joined by an official video, streaming at the band’s official website HERE. Directed by P.R. Brown, “Unheavenly Creatures” takes us inside the story’s opening chapters where we see two captured criminals (Creature and Colossus) being walked through a ship on their way towards judgment for committed against society, and perhaps, one another. The video premiered via an exclusive interview with Sanchez at Marvel.com; Sanchez also joined Marvel’s weekly podcast, “This Week In Marvel,” for an extended discussion of THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES and much more, streaming HERE.
“Unheavenly Creatures” greeted by instant critical applause, with Rolling Stone declaring the track “finds the band in power-pop mode. (‘Unheavenly Creatures’) opens with plinky sequenced synths worthy of a retro video game and builds through distorted riffs to a massive sing-along chorus. ‘I fear, my dear, the end is here,’ Sanchez sings. ‘So run, run, run, run like a son of a gun.’”
