Coheed and Cambria Release New Song ‘Shoulders’

Coheed and Cambria have returned with their first new single in three years, “Shoulders.”

After taking a break from their Armory Wars universe with 2015’s The Color Before the Sun, a brand new era of Coheed’s mythology began in 2018 with Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures. As fans wait with anticipation for Vaxis II, “Shoulders” gives a hint to where the New York band will go next.

The song is a bouncy, mid-tempo rocker that contains fuzzy guitar work and strident lead vocals. It explodes into a catchy chorus that’s sure to get listeners’ attention. Plus, there’s a blistering guitar solo. But the tune’s lyrical content may belie the song’s seemingly bright demeanor.

“In art, in your career, in relationships… No matter how much you give of yourself or try, you have to accept that not everything in life can be a perfect fit,” frontman Claudio Sanchez says of “Shoulders.”
