Coheed and Cambria Went From “Here to Mars”
When Coheed and Cambria announced their new album The Color Before the Sun they made a big deal out of the fact that it would be the band’s first that wasn’t a part of the whole Amory Wars conceptual storyline. And that IS a big deal, since that story has become a big part of the C&C mythos.
But then I listened to the first song they released from the album, “You Got Spirit Kid.” And now I’m listening to another new one called “Here to Mars.” Not only have I not paid any attention to the lyrics of either one, but I’m realizing I never listened to Coheed and Cambria’s lyrics in the past either. It really doesn’t matter to me either way! I come for the music — which sounds distinctly and unmistakably like Coheed and Cambria, no one else — and as long as that’s good, so are we. This band could be singing about poop and farts and I’d probably like it just the same / wouldn’t even know.
So, here’s “Here to Mars,” via Rolling Stone. It’s a sweet song, and I’m sure if you like Coheed and Cambria you’ll agree, otherwise not. Check it out in lyric video form below.
