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 27th.

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 2nd 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.

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 16th 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.

For the last 20 years, Coheed and Cambria have continuously broken the mold of what a rock band can be, forging their own path and building a universe around their music unlike any other. Whether it is in the way their genre-spanning approach to songwriting has allowed them to bridge worlds without being contained to one, or the multifaceted story arc of their albums and comic book series which mark the longest running concept story in music, Coheed and Cambria have consistently shaped new standards, never conformed. Comprised of Claudio Sanchez (Vocals / Guitar), Travis Stever (Guitar), Josh Eppard (Drums) and Zach Cooper (Bass) the band has gripped listeners and press around the globe with their visionary compositions and conceptual mastery. In 2018, Coheed and Cambria made a stunning debut with their album Vaxis I: The Unheavenly Creatures, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Hard Rock Albums" chart, #6 current sales and Top 15 on the "Billboard 200" chart.

An album about vaccination? No thank you. Might as well turn on the TV and rock out to CNN for free.

We should disable comments so nobody can make fun of that Claude Sanchez chick

Oh so "Coheed" think vaccination is "tyrannical." As they submit their passports & for some countries proof of vaccinations to tour overseas, put on their seatbelts, etc. F uck these anti-vax clown losers.

vaxxes II: a booster

Vaxis is the name of Nea and Nostrand's child, of whom little is yet known. His tale will be told across five Coheed & Cambria albums, the first of which was 2018's Vaxis - Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures - Seeing the pro vax & anti vax crowd loose their minds over a fictional character thinking is about the C19 vaccine is hilarious.


anonymous 8 days ago

those first few coheed albums are legendary

Vaxxtard 2: myocarditis Boogaloo. Really though who would get vaxxed at this point the virus is 2 years old and omicron is the common cold. The only people vaxxing at this point are trying to compensate for their vapid existence with no accomplishments to purpose. The only thing they can be good at is boot licking.


anonymous 8 days ago

"with no accomplishments to purpose" Lol. English much, mouthbreather? BTW: Your break is over at Jiffy Lube, get back to work.

I Hope "A Disappearing Act" is about robbing a Walgreens

Incel Rogan worshippers who watch "Idiocracy" and think it's about anyone other than the reflection they see in the mirrored surface of a deathcore CD they cut their Oxy up on are triggered.

Claudie and the Chancy Meatballs

I am so stoked. I am booked to get my 12th booster. Yeah boys. Get vaxxed for someone else's health, not your own.

anonymous 8 days ago

just make a fake card like most people are doing and be done with it, you really think the gorilla working the door in Billings is running that shit through a database?


anonymous 8 days ago

All I can think of is Danny Tanner got the Vaxis.


anonymous 8 days ago

This band jumped the shark after the bass player robbed a pharmacy for drugs while taking a taxi back to the show. Lololol


anonymous 7 days ago

Even Tanner here, would you like to make more money? sure we all do. now you can by sending 100 bitcoin to coedfeminist@gmail.com. Get in on the ground floor of the best pickles in baltimore. Pay no mind to the defunct social media sites and google saying our business is permanently closed. Just let me shoot up, i mean shoot up our profits in a matter of weeks.
