Coheed and Cambria have released a cover of KISS's Love Gun and released a video game based on their upcoming album Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind.
The acoustic cover of the iconic KISS glam rock hit can be viewed below.
Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind, the video game which is an 'endless runner' is playable right now here.
The game is free and playable on a web browser, and puts you in the endless running shoes of either Creature or Sister Spider, the two main characters introduced in the band’s last concept album, Vaxis Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures. The soundtrack for the game consists of tracks from Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind.
The KISS cover and the video game follow the release of the anthemic recent single, The Liars Club.
Accompanied by a gorgeous animated video that follows the opening chapter of the story of their widely anticipated album Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind, The Liars Club is yet another reason the record is one of our most anticipated releases of the year.
Watch the video for The Liars Club below.
Expanding on the The Liars Club Coheed and Cambria vocalist / guitarist Claudio Sanchez remarked
“When the truth is such a mess, who doesn’t want to live out a different reality? Who doesn’t want to embrace a lie?”
The Liars Club follows past 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.
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. 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.
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.
