Claudio Sanchez Says Coheed And Cambria’s New Album Is About 75% Written

During an appearance on MetalSucks‘ “Quarantinecast,” Coheed And Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez offered an update on the band’s next album. According to him, the effort is about 75% written.

Sanchez said the following:

“I’ve got about maybe 75% worth of a record [written]. The concept is pretty much in a lock. I’ve actually started talking with Chase Stone, who did the last album’s art as well as the companion illustrated novel that went with it. So we’ve been slowly talking about some of the conceptual things and maybe we’ll start bringing this part of the story to life.

Funny, I started this song in September, it was called ‘Hallelujah Quarantine.’ It’s crazy! So in the second part of Vaxis, there’s this criminal organization called The Liar’s Club and they have this thing that sort of travels through the galaxy and they call it The Quarantine, not the actual structure but they have this celebration called The Quarantine.

It’s almost like a cotillion where the young come to party and to decide their fates. But this organization is really just taking these young kids to use them as blood banks.

Thats a very loose part within Vaxis II, this story. Looking at this, I’m like, man, I don’t know if this song is now insensitive for what we’re enduring.

Is this even going to be a part of it? Am I going to have to rename this whole sort of thing that’s happening in the story and rewrite this song? I don’t know.

There are songs. I’m not really all that worried about it. It’s just crazy that I kind of just stumbled upon this tune and I’m like, ‘Aww man. How am I gonna do that one?’”
