Coheed and Cambria are pleased to announce today a special “Deconstructed Deluxe” edition of their eighth studio album, The Color Before The Sun, due for digital release on August 19 via 300 Entertainment.

The 30 track presentation features the original album’s 10 songs, both in the studio, and in their early acoustic demo form, as well as two bonus demos that were never recorded in the studio. The demos, called, “Big Beige/4th St,” were named after Claudio’s home “The Big Beige” in upstate NY and his old apartment in Brooklyn, “4th Street” – since he wrote and tracked them in each residence. These acoustic demo tracks had previously only made available to core fans who purchased the band’s Limited Edition Deluxe Box set, which featured a 76 page physical book.  Also included in “Deconstructed” are 7 live “bootleg” tracks pulled straight from the soundboard from various dates on their recent US headline tour, that expose a very raw look at the band. 

Coheed and Cambria’s ten song album, The Color Before The Sun was released in October 2015 via 300 Entertainment, marking a bold departure for the NY-based band. It was their first non-conceptual album, pausing the beloved The Amory Wars, a seven-album science fiction saga that also bore a comic book empire, in favor of a more personal outing. “It’s very much a time capsule of my last the two years leading up to this recording,” Claudio Sanchez said. “I created The Amory Wars in 1998 because at the time, I was sort of afraid to share my personal stories, and I didn’t want these stories to be judged. So I translated my stories into fictitious ones to essentially hide behind,” Sanchez adds.

Rolling Stone declared The Color Before The Sun “a dramatic departure,” Noisey said the new album proves “there are no boundaries for a Coheed and Cambria album” and Alternative Press, in a four-star review, added “the album pops and pulsates with signature Coheed wails and riffs.” The Nerdist, who premiered the band’s ode to the ‘80s video for “You Got Spirit, Kid”, said the new music “features much of what has made Coheed and Cambria a force for the last two decades.”

The Color Before The Sun was Coheed and Cambria’s 6th consecutive Top 10 Billboard charting album, and their third to debut at #5 on the Billboard top current chart with 32,000 units sold. The record is available now via 300 Entertainment and can be purchased on  iTunes, Amazon and GooglePlay. 

Coheed and Cambria will be on the road in The States this Fall, on a massive tour with Saves The Dayand Polyphia.  Kicking off in Seattle this September, the tour takes the band through U.S. markets including a sold out show in Sacramento,  Chainfest in Santa Ana, CA (with Portugal the Man and Title Fight), a handful of stops in Canada and closing out with an already sold out show at Starland Ballroom in New Jersey.

The band will also be touring through the UK this August, appearing at Leeds and Reading Festival, with additional dates with La Dispute and mewithoutYou.
