The music world’s most intriguing storytellers, Coheed and Cambria, have released their widely anticipated new album Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind. The 13-song collection is available today is the next phase in the band's ongoing sci-fi saga The Armory Wars. Produced by the band’s own Claudio Sanchez and Zakk Cervini, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind features the singles Comatose, Rise, Naianasha (Cut The Cord), The Liars Club and Shoulders.
Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind has been garnering critical acclaim from around the globe, including from us here at Maniacs where we have been very, very, hyped on each of the singles. Even while boasting some of Coheed’s most accessible material to date, Vaxis II is putting the story front and centre more than ever, with accompanying cinematic visuals in both music videos and an official novelization.
Vocalist Claudio Sanchez recognizes that not everybody will immediately get it, but he’s confident in the story he’s telling because he’s seen it bring people together firsthand.
"I know it'll probably be hard for some when you look at the album and you're like; this looks like a movie. What's
even in here? ” “But why hide that? Hopefully, if you don't want the concept, you can look past the story and the art and just enjoy the music. But if you do dig deeper, I think you're going to be well rewarded."
In exciting news for Aussie Coheed fans, Maniacs are now offering the album in both vinyl and CD format.
