Multi-Part Album Releases: A New Trend?

These days, there is often debate over the value of an entire album. With all the illegal downloading of MP3s and the seemingly constant decrease in attention spans, some argue that the full-length album is becoming less and less substantial as a marketable product, while EPs and singles are increasing in value.

To combat this shift, many artists are taking the LP to new heights, giving it more value as a complete overall package and work of art.

Coheed And Cambria Release Video For “The Afterman”

If you’ve followed any of the Coheed and Cambria mythology, you know that the fictional universe that Claudio Sanchez has created is expansive, complex, and incredibly detailed. Even with knowledge of past occurrences in the world of Coheed and Cambria, it’s still difficult to parse the band’s latest video offering for “The Afterman” off of their latest release The Afterman: Ascension. From the hard-cover coffee-table book that was released in conjunction with the album, it’s clear that the new record follows the storyline of Sirus Amory, a man searching for the central energy source of the universe. This information might just help in explaining the storyline of the video: a woman in a white dress ventures out in a small rowboat over the sea after witnessing the explosion of a rocket ship. A lone astronaut parachutes out of the crash into the ocean, where he finds the woman. After they share an intimate moment together, the man vanishes back into the ocean while the woman sleeps. Is this Sirius? Where does this moment fall in terms of the greater story? You’ll just have to listen to the rest of the album to find out.
