Modern progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria have shared an official music video for “Toys,” which is featured on their acclaimed new LP THE UNHEAVENLY CREATURES. The animated holiday clip, titled ‘The Unheavenly Christmas Carol,’ was developed by the band’s frontman Claudio Sanchez and directed by Alek Wasilewski. The video debuted earlier today via Funny Or Die who professed, “We’re in the middle of 45’s impeachment… that’s a lot to try and cope with during the holiday season, but Coheed and Cambria’s here to meld holiday bliss with democratic shit-shows.”
Sanchez remarked, “I’ve wanted to ‘toy’ with a Santa story for some time. I guess, no better time than the present. And for Jolly Ole’ to decide if he’s Naughty or Nice? The President.”
Furthermore, last week, Coheed and Cambria announced the S.S. Neverender, their very own immersive festival at sea — which promptly sold out in 3 days during the pre-sale. The S.S. Neverender, which sets sail aboard the Norwegian Pearl on October 26-30, 2020 from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, will see the band performing early songs and deep cuts from their catalogue.
