Roadrunner Records group Coheed and Cambria have unveiled a third new track from their highly anticipated new LP, THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES. “The Gutter,” an explosive six-minute operatic rock jam, is streaming today alongside an exclusive interview with frontman Claudio Sanchez at Rolling Stone HERE. THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES arrives worldwide on Friday, October 5th.
Coheed and Cambria’s new studio album THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES is available for pre-order HERE, with all orders receiving instant grat downloads of “The Gutter” alongside the recently released new tracks, “Unheavenly Creatures” and “The Dark Sentencer.” In addition, a limited vinyl edition of the LP entitled “THE UNHEAVENLY COLORWAY’ will be available for pre-order beginning August 20th exclusively via www.coheedandcambria.com. The vinyl package will be available in three colours, with each colour representing a different character in THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES concept arc.

Boasting 15 songs over 78 minutes, THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES marks Coheed and Cambria’s furious return to concept albums, the ‘First Act’ in a brand-new story arc set within the backdrop of The Amory Wars universe. The LP was heralded earlier this summer with the arrival of its title track, “Unheavenly Creatures,” joined by an official video, streaming at the band’s official website HERE. Directed by P.R. Brown, “Unheavenly Creatures” takes us inside the story's opening chapters where we see two captured criminals (Creature and Colossus) being walked through a ship on their way towards judgement for committed against society, and perhaps, one another. The video premiered via an exclusive interview with Sanchez at Marvel.com; Sanchez also joined Marvel’s weekly podcast, “This Week In Marvel,” for an extended discussion of THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES and much more, streaming HERE.
Coheed and Cambria made their long-awaited return this spring with the arrival of “The Dark Sentencer,” the first new music to be released by the band since their acclaimed 2015 LP, The Color Before The Sun. Leaked to fans by Sanchez along with the opening paragraphs from the album’s aforementioned novella, the 10-minute prog manifesto made global impact with Revolver declaring, “The soaring song with its rolling guitar riff could soundtrack the montage to any intergalactic underdog story.”

Of The Month - October 2016 - The Beards
The Beards - Sadly all good things must come to an end and this year see’s everyone’s favourite Australian Bearded rockers The Beards calling it a day, the band who formed back in 2005 have made a career of singing about Beards and in the ten years they have been together as a band they have toured constantly and released 4 studio albums titled ‘The Beards’, ‘Beards, Beards, Beards’, ‘Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard’, ‘The Beards Album’ and also the most recent greatest hits ‘Ten Long Years, One Long Beard’ and every song on these albums is about beards.
Back at the start of the year the band announced that they were calling it a day and frontman Johann Beardraven had this to say “We feel like we've achieved what we set out to achieve through music, everybody now agrees that beards are great, so the time has come for us to rest on our laurels. But not before we go around one last time and say a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's come out to see us over the years, and especially to everyone who's grown a beard, or adopted a pro-beard attitude.”
The band have spent the majority of the year touring across Australia saying a final farewell to their homebound fans and now the band are currently touring across mainland Europe before saying a final farewell to their UK fans in the middle of October and it is the perfect time to see the band on the live circuit as not only is it a farewell tour but the band will also be playing two jam-packed sets of bearded anthems from their impressive back catalogue, incorporating both the stripped-back acoustic sound that helped them gain radio play in Australia, and the infectious pop-rock that has won them a legion of fans worldwide.
The Beards are much-loved by audiences around the world for their refreshingly original concept, highly-interactive live shows and trademark sense of humour. Don't miss this hugely-entertaining Aussie phenomenon's victory lap of Europe this October.
