OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Coheed and Cambria has announced details of their widely anticipated new album, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind. The ambitious thirteen track epic was produced by the band’s own Claudio Sanchez and Zakk Cervini, and will be released worldwide on May 27.
Today the band has launched pre-orders for the album on DSPs and for the collection’s deeply immersive Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set.
Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind welcomes us back to “The Amory Wars” as the second installment of the five-part “Vaxis” arc about a couple on the run from tyrannical forces and their mysterious new addition. The album’s limited edition deluxe box set [packaging shot below] includes the exclusive 96-page illustrated hardcover novel “A Window of the Waking Mind” which was developed by Sanchez and written by his wife Chondra Echert with strikingly realistic color artwork by Chase Stone. The 9” x 12” box set also houses an exclusive Quintillan Speaker Containment Unit Lamp (approx. 8” diameter), a 3-panel fold out poster of expanded album cover art, and the A Window of the Waking Mind Black Card which will allow all card holders early access to tickets and early entry to Coheed and Cambria headline dates. All box sets will also come with a CD copy and download of Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind along with an official Certificate of Authenticity. Furthermore, fans who pre-order the limited edition box set before January 23rd, will receive autographed copies and have their name included within the pages of the accompanying illustrated hardcover novel.

Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind includes the recently released singles “Rise, Naianasha (Cut The Cord)” and “Shoulders,” the latter of which vaulted into the Top 10 at Active Rock Radio, marking the group’s career highest radio chart position to date.
Coheed and Cambria will celebrate the forthcoming LP with “The Great Destroyer Tour,” a U.S. headline run which will feature support from special guests Sheer Mag. The coast-to-coast trek is set to get underway on February 16 with a sold out show at the legendary Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA and will continue through mid-March giving audiences an opportunity to see the band live in intimate clubs across the U.S. For tickets and more information on the “The Great Destroyer Tour,” visit www.coheedandcambria.com.
