If you’re a Coheed and Cambria fan…well, we have some good news for you! The group is back.
On Wednesday (July 21), the New York founded act released a brand new song titled “Shoulders.”
The three-and-a-half-minute song marks the band’s first “proper studio recording” in nearly three years.
According to the accompanying press release, “Shoulders” touches on the highs and lows of the band’s multi-decade career in the music world and “how at times it can be frustrating to be an outsider to trendy circles, but in the end, doing it your own way has the biggest rewards.”
Coheed and Cambria vocalist/guitarist Claudio Sanchez adds: “In art, in your career, in relationships… No matter how much you give of yourself or try, you have to accept that not everything in life can be a perfect fit.”
Check out the new song above.
“Shoulders” comes three years after Coheed and Cambria released their ninth studio album, Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures, in 2018. No word on whether “Shoulders” will be a standalone single or part of an upcoming record.
Next month, Coheed and Cambria will hit the touring circuit alongside The Used for their co-headlining amphitheater tour. The 18-city trek kicks off on Aug. 27 at the FivePoint Amphitheater in Los Angeles. It concludes a month later, on Sept. 24, at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. Meet Me @ the Altar, and carolesdaughter will perform on select dates.
