Coheed and Cambria return with their sixth studio album, a double concept album entitled, The Afterman.
Modern progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria's latest is a double concept album entitled, The Afterman, and is being separate full-length volumes. The first volume, The Afterman: Ascension, is out now, while the second volume, The Afterman: Descension is slated for release in February 2013.
Musically, The Afterman sees the band perfecting their powerhouse progressive rock, soul and even pop landscapes. The dual release also marks the return of original drummer Josh Eppard, who the band parted ways with in 2006, bringing with him his benchmark percussive grooves. Coheed and Cambria self-financed and co-produced The Afterman, alongside Michael Birnbaum and Chris Bittner, who produced the band's first three albums, in Woodstock, NY. The album was mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, The Shins, Foster the People) and Ryan Williams (30 Seconds To Mars).
