I have never cared for Coheed and Cambria because I don’t like prog no matter how postmodern it can get between the punks and the metalheads in a McLuhanian bro off and I also can’t handle Rush (though, thanks in no small part to the Trailer Park Boys, I have been able to afford the band some degree of fuckin’ awesome) and concept albums are the pits unless you’re Craig Finn or Bruce Springsteen or Prurient, I guess but whatever with my reservations because Coheed and Cambria have just dropped the first track off their upcoming NOT CONCEPT! album, The Color Before the Sun (due out 10.9 on 300 Entertainment) and that’s a big fucking deal for a whole lot of people with better sense than me and besides that it’s actually kinda fun as all hell, if decidedly bitter so maybe not that fun at all but it’ll be shit-sure blast to shout along to…ironically? I don’t know but the song is called “You Got Spirit Kid” and it’s embedded below (as a lyric clip with fireworks and confetti and WHOO!). Rockit.
WATCH! Coheed and Cambria Play Hard the Bitter Triumph in “You Got Spirit Kid”
