Coheed and Cambria released their latest sci-fi prog rocker, “The Dark Sentencer.” It’s seven minutes and 45-ish seconds of Coheed shred action. Add a couple more minutes for that prologue.

The Prologue sets the scene. A narrator talks about an Earth almost destroyed by a cataclysmic cosmic event. A romance between a pair of unheavenly creatures. The five houses of the star supremacy. A great crash!

Here we go!

It begins with them but it ends with me…their son…Vaxus!

Happy Friday!

Go with yourself.

The White Panda sent over their punched up take on Verite’s most excellent The 1975 cover of “Somebody Else.”

In an email Tom from White Panda said, “We thought it would be fun to give a more dancey edge to her soothing vocals, and were really pleased with how it came out.”

Yesterday was my daughter’s 9th birthday!

I took the day off at the radio station so my wife and her mother could Madelyn to a tea house in Vancouver.

I totally flaked on this year. I wanted to theme her 9th birthday after the movie 9. Do you remember that movie?  When Madelyn was a baby (or like toddler) she used to watch that movie all the time. I must have seen it a thousand times.

And I remember thinking, “when she turns 9, I’ll get her like a 9 birthday cake or something.”

But then life happened and the obsession for the film 9 was replaced and replaced again. And replaced again and she is into different things now.

Today we’re taking a gaggle of 9-year-olds to see the Lego Batman movie. Fun. Pray for me and my wife.

I used to LOVE Coheed and Cambria. I still routinely light up In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. Seeing them at Richards years ago when Claudio lost his voice and the fans basically sang every song for him is a show I still fondly remember.

I kinda thought the band was done till I read this story about Claudio and his wife returning from an extended travel adventure to find their rural home was turned into a major grow-op while they were away.

They came home to deal with that and welcome the birth of their child. And write a new record. New Coheed comes out on October 9th and will be called The Color Before The Sun. Here’s the single “You’ve Got Spirit, Kid.”

The song came on next from Soundcloud. Older alt-pop song from Australian group Gold Fields. It’s fun.

Happy Friday! Go with yourself.
