Coheed and Cambria have announced the details of their much-anticipated new album, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind. The 13-track LP will arrive June 24th.
Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind was produced by the band’s own Claudio Sanchez and Zakk Cervini. The album will feature the recently released singles “Rise, Naianasha (Cut The Cord)” and “Shoulders,” the latter of which scored the band their highest-charting radio single to date inside the Top 10 at active rock radio.
Coheed and Cambria will take the new tunes on the road this February on “The Great Destroyer Tour,” a US headlining trek featuring special guests Sheer Mag. Tickets are currently available via Ticketmaster.
The forthcoming album continues the band’s “Armory Wars” storyline and is the second installment of the five-part “Vaxis” arc about a couple on the run from tyrannical forces and their mysterious new addition.
The set’s limited edition deluxe box set features a 96-page illustrated hardcover novel A Window of the Waking Mind, which was developed by Sanchez and written by his wife Chondra Echert, with artwork by Chase Stone. Other goodies include an exclusive Quintillan Speaker Containment Unit Lamp, three-panel fold out poster of expanded album cover art and the A Window of the Waking Mind Black Card, which allows holders early access to tickets and early entry to Coheed and Cambria headlining shows.
All box sets will also arrive with a CD copy and download of Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind along with an official Certificate of Authenticity. Those who pre-order the limited-edition box set before January 23rd will get autographed copies and have their name included within the pages of the accompanying illustrated hardcover novel.
