    Here comes part two!

    Coheed and Cambria released The Afterman: Ascension on October 9, 2012. Now, volume 2, The Afterman: Descension, will be released via Everything Evil/Hundred Handed Inc. on February 5, 2013. It's a split release of a concept.

    The band will embark on a national headlining tour beginning with two shows in Washington D.C. at the 9:30 Club on February 4 and 5, and sees the band playing landmark venues such as NYC's Radio City Music Hall and LA's Wiltern Theater. Supporting Coheed will be the progressive juggernaut Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles.

    "We haven't properly toured on a new album in what will be nearly three years, so coming off the heels of these two albums means we'll have a wide breadth of new material to choose from," singer Claudio Sanchez said. "Playing Radio City Music Hall – and being from New York- it's not something I ever thought I would be able to do. It's quite an honor."

    In the story arc of The Afterman: Descension, we continue the conceptual storyline from volume one, where Sirius Amory, i.e., "The Afterman," is a scientist/cosmonaut who goes on celestial mission and makes what is arguably the most important discovery ever known to mankind. But upon his return, he discovers his ambitiousness may have brought him fleeting fame, but also tragic repercussions.

    The band is also releasing a limited edition clear vinyl version of the Ascension - Big Beige Demos for Black Friday/Record Store Day Nov 29. Each song from the album in its original, raw form - mostly acoustic, recorded on Sanchez's mini- home studio rig at its inception.
