Coheed and Cambria have recently released the second single, “Here to Mars,” from upcoming The Color Before the Sun. The album will be the first to exist outside the sci-fi concept of the band as a whole and is scheduled to drop Oct. 16. Vocalist Claudio Sanchez spoke about the single:

“My wife has helped pull me from the throes of an identity crisis. While I can barely comprehend the distance of our planetary neighbor, let alone the ever expanding universe, my love for her knows no distance.”

The band will be on tour through November making runs with Glassjaw and Cursive, among others.
