Last month, Coheed and Cambria released their widely anticipated new album THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart and Top 15 on the “Billboard 200” chart. 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 Warsuniverse. The acclaimed record is highlighted by standout tracks “The Gutter,” “Unheavenly Creatures,” “The Dark Sentencer,” and “Old Flames,” the latter of which features an official music videodirected by Charles “Chas” Todd. The cinematic clip features striking choreography masterminded by Broadway luminary Jon Rua who is known for his roles in the 12-time Tony nominated Spongebob Squarepants and the Tony & Grammy Award Winning hit musical Hamilton.
A deluxe version of THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES is also available with the immersive VAXIS – ACT I: THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES – LIMITED EDITION DELUXE BOX SET. The deluxe box set includes an exclusive eighty-eight page hardcover illustrated sci-fi novel with strikingly realistic color imagery by Chase Stone, as well as the complete Act 1 novella written by frontman Claudio Sanchez and his wife, Chondra Echert. The box set also houses a fully wearable hard-plastic mask of the main character in THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES, a CD copy of the album, as well as the exclusive bonus album, The Crown Heights Demos, showing the songs in their original written form. Additional items include a three-panel fold-out poster of expanded album cover art and the Unheavenly Creatures Black Card which will allow all card holders early access to tickets and early entry to Coheed and Cambria headline dates.
