Coheed and Cambria’s new disc, No World for Tomorrow, concludes an epic space opera the prog-emo band has been telling over their previous three albums. With 2005’s Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness, the story expanded into a metafictional tale of a teenager-turned-hero who could destroy his universe or save it. The complex music-only movie is the creation of singer-guitarist Claudio Sanchez, who sings like Geddy Lee, shreds like Jimmy Page, and has a loyal legion of fans among the Warped Tour demographic. No World for Tomorrow hits stores today, and all Exchange stores have the disc for just $5.99 while supplies last. The band plays a two-night stand with Clutch at the House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave.) Tuesday, October 30 and Wednesday, October 31.
