After seven consecutive albums centered on their ambitious Amory Wars concept—the kind of sci-fi saga that tends to inspire especially obsessive fans—New York prog-rockers Coheed and Cambria released the non-conceptual The Color Before the Sun in 2015, where frontman Claudio Sanchez harnessed his pure pop songwriting abilities to bright, explosive results. It may go down as a one-time departure, as the band’s upcoming Vaxis—Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures will be set within The Amory Wars. With Taking Back Sunday and the Story So Far.
