For many fans the last Coheed and Cambria studio album Year Of The Black Rainbow left a lot to be desired. With the previously announced double album The Afterman set for release over the next few months, expectations for the progressive four piece are sky high. Judging by the just released video for Key Entity Extraction I: Domino The Destitute the band is ready to blow any and all expectations out of the water.
With the addition of bassist Zach Cooper and the return of long time drummer Josh Eppard new life and energy has been breathed into the band. Clocking in at just over eight minutes, Domino The Destitute manages to capture the feel of past Coheed classics like In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 and Welcome Home. Check it out for yourself down below.
Coheed and Cambria recently shared some information about the song and how it fits into the band’s ongoing Armory Wars storyline on their official Facebook page.
