COHEED AND CAMBRIA Premier “You Got Spirit, Kid” Music Video
August 20, 2015, 3 years ago
Coheed And Cambria head back to high school in their “You Got Spirit, Kid” video. The clip, an homage to ‘80s teen movies, can be seen below.
“Our video for “You Got Spirit, Kid: gave us a chance to showcase a relaxed side of the band’s personality,” said Coheed and Cambria front man Claudio Sanchez. “With our love for ‘80s nostalgia, we decided to approach the treatment in a John Hughes or Steven Spielberg type fashion, allowing the spirit of youth and camaraderie to shine in each frame.”
The clip, which was directed by DJay Brawner (Refused, Grouplove), follows the band as they take down a group of school bullies through a series of pranks.
The group recently revealed the artwork and tracklisting for their new album, The Color Before The Sun, out on October 9th via 300 Entertainment.
The cover, which features a serene lake with a house disintegrating into the sky, was created by Nick Steinhardt (Touche Amore, Deafheaven) and reflects the story behind the ten-song album.
While the most conceptually abstruse Coheed records have always had a foundation in reality, The Color Before the Sun marks the first time Sanchez is exposing his raw feelings, narrated from his own perspective — the anxiety of fatherhood, the disorienting feeling of losing a home, the reflections had during early-morning walks. His own story is told through big, bright, driving, colorful songs that beam like power-pop, crunch like vintage '90s emocore and float with the expansive feel of space-rock.
Sanchez’ journey is captured not only in the music, but also in a new limited edition deluxe box set available for pre-order as of today at coheedandcambria.com The extensive collection offers fans two hardcover books; one featuring album lyrics and expansive artwork from The Color Before The Sun, while a separate book documents the events and emotions of the time with prose and photographs. Four different pieces of music are housed in the die-cut slipcase: The Color Before The Sun (CD), The Color Before The Sun demos (CD), an in-studio DVD and a clear 7-inch vinyl with two non-album demo tracks. Purchasers also receive an instant download of “You Got Spirit, Kid,” a membership card, a custom house key, a lapel pin, a certificate of authenticity; as well as exclusive, members-only access to new music, videos, concert tickets, merchandise and commentary from the band.
