Coheed and Cambria Plan No World for Tomorrow

Columbia  Records  has announced the release of Coheed and Cambria’s "NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW," out October 23,  2007.  The  album is the band’s fourth  record,  and  second  for  Columbia.  The  new record follows  the  successful  and  critically  acclaimed  "Good   Apollo I’m Burning Star IV, Vol 1: From Fear Through the  Eyes  of  Madness," which peaked at number 7 on the "Billboard Top 200."

Coheed and Cambria (Claudio Sanchez – vocals,  guitar;  Travis  Stever – guitar; Mic Todd – bass) spent the first half  of  2007  working  on "NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW" in Los Angeles with producer  Nick  Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters,  Rush,  Stone  Sour)  and  mixer   Randy   Staub   (Metallica, Nickelback). With  original  drummer  Joshua  Eppard  out  of  the band, Coheed recruited Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters to  play  drums on the record. The  making  of  "NO WORLD  FOR TOMORROW"  marks  the band’s first time they have worked with new Columbia  co-Chairman  Rick  Rubin, who played an A&R role in the making of the record.

"NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW" is a notable progression for the  band,  who has now added ex-Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Chris Pennie  as an  official new member. Sanchez says: "Josh leaving the band was a big deal  for us, but having Taylor on the record, and now having Chris in  the  band full time has really allowed us to progress in a way that is really  exciting for all of us." While still very  much  a Coheed  record  in  sound, "NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW" is a much more personal document  for  Sanchez as he allowed the emotional events of recent  years  to profoundly  effect the lyrical content for the first  time  ever.  Still,  the  new record does complete the story of the Amory Wars, and is in fact the  final  chapter in the saga of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon,  the  main  characters in a story that wraps all of the band’s concept albums into one.

"I  found  it impossible  to write  this  record   without   allowing my personal life  to creep  into  the  direction  of  the  story,"  Sanchez shares.  "I  had  a clear  vision  of where  I wanted  the  record to go musically in terms of experimenting with new  instrumentation,  but when it came time for the lyrics,  I opened  myself  up  to let  things go to where they naturally were going. It turns out that  what  happened to me over the last couple of years helped shaped the conclusion of  the story better  than  I could  have  ever  imagined.  So   it all   worked out."

The band will tour the world heavy and hard for the next year  at least.
