Excerpt from video premiere below:
Coheed and Cambria Premiere official “Island” video on People Magazine
‘Batman v Superman’ and the Battle For Times Square
Lead singer Claudio Sanchez is no stranger to comics- as Coheed and Cambria’s latest album marks a bold departure from the beloved The Amory Wars, a seven-album science fiction saga that also bore a comic book empire. Sanchez is also a staple of the comic book scene and a regular at San Diego Comic Con, inviting his fans to come out to signings. He felt it appropriate to create this video as an homage to both New York City and his favorite characters.
“When I think of these two iconic characters, I think of opposite attraction” says Sanchez. “I think of myself and my wife. How two opposite ends of a spectrum can create harmony and balance. In one way or another, these characters have been paired up with like-minded love interests, the Bat and the Cat… The Alien and the Amazonian… I wanted to bring the Dark and the Light together.”
