One of my favorite bands, Porcupine Tree, has released the video for their second single, ‘Bonnie The Cat’, off their latest album ‘The Incident’. Unfortunately, I couldn’t embed it so you’ll have to GO HERE to check it out, which I highly recommend that you do as this video is beautifully done and has a very creepy vibe about it.
This week marks the releases of two hotly anticipated titles that just so happen to be written by the frontmen of two of the most popular rock bands in the world. One is, of course, Rob Zombie’s “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BARON VON SHOCK?!”, and the other is Claudio Sanchez’s first issue in “THE AMORY WARS: IN KEEPING SECRETS OF A SILENT EARTH: 3″. For all you “COHEED AND CAMBRIA” fans you can make the jump and read the first 6 pages of the first issue before it goes on sale this Wednesday from BOOM! Studios! Read on for the skinny.
In 1998 Claudio Sanchez conceived an idea of a science-fiction called the Bag.On.Line Adventures which would go on later to become known as The Amory Wars. In 2002 Coheed And Cambria released their first full length, “The Second Stage Turbine Blade”. This album is know as part two of a five part story concept. Today Coheed And Camrbia have finally released “Year Of The Black Rainbow” the long awaited prequel of The Amory Wars.

Fans of Coheed And Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez’s ongoing series “AMORY WARS” are as diehard a bunch as you’ll likely find in comics. They stand by the afro-powered rockstar with all the faith a writer could ask for, and like the band’s music, he rarely disappoints. So fans should be very happy to hear that this May BOOM! Studios will be continuing the series with “AMORY WARS: IN KEEPING SECRETS OF SILENT EARTH-3″. Not only that but the publisher will be collecting the previous issues in a hardcover “ULTIMATE” edition slated for this April. Read on for all the specs and info on the releases.
Coheed And Cambria have released an animated video for “The Broken”. Now while “The Broken” isn’t the first single for the upcoming album, “Year Of The Black Rainbow”, it is definitely awesome to see a visual representation of The Amory Wars. Enjoy.

Coheed and Cambria will embark on its first North American headline tour since fall 2007 beginning April 22, nine days following the April 13 release of its fifth studio album, Year of the Black Rainbow (Columbia).
The five-week track marks Coheed and Cambria’s return to headlining its own shows following a two-year-plus period that has seen them invited to play along with the likes of John Paul Jones, Johnny Winter and others at Warren Haynes’ 2008 Christmas Jam, embarking on a pair of arena tours in support of Slipknot and Heaven & Hell, respectively, and appearing at festivals ranging from Austin City Limits to Lollapalooza to an upcoming Coachella set.
Support for the upcoming tour will be Circa Survive and Torche. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 20th. The band recently made available a first taste of Year of the Black Rainbow by streaming the new song “The Broken” at coheedandcambria.com The song is also available for purchase on iTunes, where it climbed to #5 on the Alternative Chart within hours of its release.
Coheed & Cambria updated their website with a little of what we can expect from the band in 2010, including a new album and tour.
“Our new album will be titled, “Year of the Black Rainbow,” and is set for release in April 2010 and will be followed by a headline tour of the US, and then on to Europe and the UK for festivals and such.
As most of you know, the new album will be the “Origin Story” or “The Prequel,” and likely the final story of the ongoing concept story of “The Amory Wars”
With “Year of the Black Rainbow,” we will be releasing a deluxe package that includes a NOVEL OF THE SAME NAME. Not a graphic novel, but a full 300+page prose novel, which will tell the origins of Coheed and Cambria, and much more. There will be no mystery to this story, you will be able to explore it like never before. Presales will start near the end of December, exact date and pricing to be announced soon.”
