"Man your own jackhammers" Maniacs because Coheed and Cambria have announced details of their widely anticipated new album, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind.
The ambitious thirteen track epic was produced by the band’s own Claudio Sanchez and Zakk Cervini and will be released worldwide on May 27th.
Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind welcomes us back to The Amory Wars as the 2nd instalment of the five-part Vaxis arc about a couple on the run from tyrannical forces and their mysterious new addition.
One of our most anticipated albums for 2022, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind includes the recently released singles Rise, Naianasha (Cut The Cord) and Shoulders, the latter of which vaulted into the Top 10 at Active Rock Radio in the USA, marking the group’s career highest radio chart position to date. Watch the video for Shoulders below.
The band has launched pre-orders for the album on all digital providers, as well as physical orders for the collection’s deeply immersive Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set.
The album’s limited-edition deluxe box set includes an exclusive 96-page illustrated hardcover novel A Window of the Waking Mind which was developed by Sanchez and written by his wife Chondra Echert with strikingly realistic colour artwork by Chase Stone.
The 9” x 12” box set also houses an exclusive Quintillan Speaker Containment Unit Lamp (approx. 8” diameter), a 3-panel fold-out poster of expanded album cover art, and the A Window of the Waking Mind Black Card which will allow all cardholders early access to tickets and early entry to Coheed and Cambria headline dates.
All box sets will also come with a CD copy and download of Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind along with an official Certificate of Authenticity. Fans who pre-order the limited edition box set before January 23rd, will receive autographed copies and have their name included within the pages of the accompanying illustrated hardcover novel!
