Coheed and Cambria have shared an acoustic version of their new Top 25 single, “The Liars Club”. Peeling back the layers on the anthemic track, Coheed and Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez has reimagined “The Liars Club” with sweeping acoustics as he suspends disbelief and immerses listeners into a new reality. Listen to the new version now below.
The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind. On the album, The Liars Club is a crime syndicate run by a mob boss called Candelaria. The Club’s leadership achieves their endless endurance by draining the essence from youthful blood. Youth which they’ve lured to their doorstop via Inaugura, a raucous party aboard Candelaria’s floating city called The Cotillion.
As to why the acoustic touch, Claudio remarked, “It’s fun for me to try and reimagine songs I’ve written… ‘The Liars Club’ felt like the perfect candidate for the treatment.”
Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind will now be released worldwide on June 24th due to ongoing global vinyl delays.
Coheed and Cambria commented on the new release date explaining, “Due to the ongoing issues with vinyl manufacturing, Covid shutdowns in China and supply-chain disruptions, we have pushed the release date for Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind to June 24th. We did everything we could to make the May date happen, but it’s beyond our control and we are excited you’ll have vinyl and the beautiful box set available on release date. We couldn’t be prouder of this new album, and we hope you will feel it was worth the wait. We will drop another song in the meantime to carry you through. Thank you for your neverending support.”
Pre-orders for the album on DSPs and for the collection’s deeply immersive Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set are available now. Click HERE for more details.
