The Color Before the Sun is the eighth studio album by progressive rock band COHEED AND CAMBRIA. The band released a live acoustic version of "Atlas" in August 2014, and announced a release date of October 9 in July of the following year. The first single was "You Got Spirit, Kid", released in July 2015. It is the first non-conceptual album the band has released, making it the only COHEED AND CAMBRIA album to not be a part of The Amory Wars storyline
COHEED AND CAMBRIA formed in 1995 in Nyack, New York. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez (lead vocals, guitar), Travis Stever (guitar, backing vocals), Josh Eppard (drums, keyboards), and Zach Cooper (bass). The group's music incorporates aspects of progressive rock, pop, heavy metal, and post-hardcore.
Most of COHEED AND CAMBRIAs albums are concept albums based on a science fiction storyline called The Amory Wars, a series written by Claudio Sanchez, which has been transcribed into a series of comic books as well as a full-length novel. The band has released seven studio albums, three live albums, and several special-edition releases. Their upcoming eighth studio album, The Color Before the Sun, will be the band's first non-conceptual album since their inception.
Fans of COHEED AND CAMBRIA call themselves "Children of the Fence", in reference to the fictional galaxy within The Amory Wars known as "Heaven's Fence".
