The Unheavenly Creatures came out in October. The disc is a sprawling 15-track, 78-minute epic which finds COHEED AND CAMBRIA returning to the conceptual narrative of “The Amory Wars”. The box set includes an exclusive 80-plus-page hardcover illustrated sci-fi novel with strikingly realistic color imagery by Chase Stone, as well as the complete “Act 1” novella written by frontman Claudio Sanchez and his wife, Chondra Echert. The set also houses a fully wearable hard-plastic mask of the main character in The Unheavenly Creatures, a CD copy of the album, as well as the exclusive bonus album, The Crown Heights Demos, showing the songs in their original written form. Additional items include a three-panel fold out poster of expanded album cover art, and “The Unheavenly Creatures Black Card” which allows all card holders early access to tickets and early entry to COHEED AND CAMBRIA headline dates.
