I know right? That's the same price as my ticket after fees lol. Coheed didn't even have their own merch set up anywhere either, all they had was the one shirt and it was in the bottom corner of the display of Maiden shirts. So weak.

You'd think Maiden would let them have a bigger merch table since Maiden already has a name for themselves in the world. Guess not. That's so lame.

Got excited for the new stuff, so I decided to watch the Neverender doc. Still awesome. I get choked up when Claudio talks about his dad.

I am very appreciative of how open and personal Claudio gets throughout that entire documentary. Even the moments with Josh were pretty emotional as well. I love the hell out of all of them for doing that.

I got an email tonight saying the deluxe "Amory Wars Editon" would not ship on time. Freaking bummer. They are however releasing the digital album at 12 Midnight on Sunday(into Monday). tl;dr verison: they didn't like the quality of the product so they had them redo it. Then after that, a manufacturing delay. I'm ok with it, I'll get a physical copy from Best Buy anyway to have something in my hand on Tuesday.

"Hello friends, fans, and COTF,
First of all, thank you. Since you are reading this, it means you are a massive supporter of ours - many of you we know or have met. Without you, we wouldn't be able to play shows, record our records or follow our creative urges on a daily basis like we are allowed to do. Without you, we wouldn't be here, and we never lose sight of that.
Because of that, and our desire to deliver to you art that we are truly proud of; that we feel you will enjoy and appreciate manyyears from now; The Afterman Amory Award Edition has not shipped yet, and therefore will miss our targeted delivery date of next Tuesday.
All digital music, including the 9 demos will be delivered to you 24 hours early, on Sunday night at Midnight. We are told the physical sets will begin shipping mid to late next week.
There are several reasons for this delay. The biggest reason is quality. We rejected several prototypes that would have saved us money and a little time, but that has never been what we are about. We made a conscious decision that we would not be taking shortcuts. We want each deluxe album to be better than the last, and as The Afterman began taking shape, it just kept growing and evolving, and so even if you are a little pissed right now, we feel like a year from now, 2 years from now, 5 years from now, you will still appreciate this set. So much time went into the recording of this album, the creation of concept, the painting of the art - that we couldn't cut corners. From Nathan's Art, to the certificate, to the coin, to the paper it was printed on there were a lot of moving parts, and pretty much each one had Its own pitfalls but in turn, made the package stronger. Despite all of this, our printer told us that they had made up time and we would be able to ship this week, and we were very relieved to hear that. Unfortunately, we were told yesterday that another hiccup occurred in the pressing plant that pushed completion back at least a week.
So in addition, we have decided that your VIP laminate will not only get you in early to our headline shows (you still need tickets) from now through next Spring, and select shows after, but for all these shows we will perform a special acoustic song before doors for you. You can be assured that we will be embarking on a major US headliner as well as touring all over the globe next year.
For those of you who ordered in time for signatures - we decided to sign the laminates instead of the certificates. The first run of certificates were rejected because of the quality of the paper. It was a nice paper, but was just too thin, and when it was shipped to us, and as we began signing, the corners were getting bent, wrinkles began to form and it just didn't cut it. The new certificates are a much better paper and without us handling them, will hopefully allow them to maintain a pristine quality.
We apologize greatly for this inconvenience, we hope the music can hold you over for the short delay. We appreciate your patience and look forward to sharing the journey of The Afterman with you.

i haven't been much of a Coheed fan for the last few years, but i gave the new album a go, and i can honestly say that i really like it. the only songs i didn't love were the 4 "Key Entity" tracks. the rest though, borderline loved them.

That's pretty cool. I can't wait to hear it. It seems to be received pretty well so far.

Almost finished the album.

I love the first third of the album. The Hollow, Domino The Destitute, and The Afterman are great.

The middle portion of Mother Of Men, Goodnight Fair Lady, and Hollywood The Cracked is a little blah for me. Kinda weak for me.

Vic The Butcher is great. Haven't listened to the last two songs yet. I'm stuck in class, sadly.

I had never been to a big show like that one in my life and was surprised that the way merch was handled was not like any other show I've been to. Fuck me, right?

I like the band, but not a huge fan. After a listen. Nothing changes.
