Coheed & Cambria Debut New Song “The Gutter” About Some Sci-Fi Shit
With respect to the fella who interviewed Coheed & Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez for Rolling Stone about the band’s return to the ongoing mega-epic sci-fi drama The Amory Wars on their latest album — his name is Ryan Reed and he seems like a nice guy — that’s cool and all, but we’re just here for the music, maaaaaan. I know plenty of Coheed fans get super into that stuff, but it’s just too much for me. I’ve always loved their music, though! To each his or her own, I suppose. Thankfully the RS interview covers some other Coheed-related topics, too.
So: “The Gutter” is the third single we’re hearing from Coheed’s new album The Unheavenly Creatures — following “The Dark Sentencer” and “Unheavenly Creatures” — and this one’s on the slower, more ballad-y side of the Coheed spectrum. There are some gorgeously layered vocal harmonies and a sweet guitar solo, and the song comes along with a visualizer video that presumably features some album artwork. I have no idea what the song’s lyrics are about an I don’t really care, but that doesn’t quell my excitement for the new Coheed album which I’m excited to dig into in full.
Oh and hey did you know that Coheed drummer Josh Eppard is a huge Mets fan? The guy’s for real, and constantly tweets about the team even in the back-end of this absolutely dismal season.
The Unheavenly Creatures comes out October 5, and can be pre-ordered here.
