Coheed and Cambria Premieres New Music Video for “Old Flames”
- New York-based progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria has dropped a new music video for “Old Flames” directed by Charles Todd.
The song appears on their ninth studio album "Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures", which is out October 5, 2018. It was written by Claudio Sanchez.
The album is their first LP in three years since "The Color Before the Sun".
The video is inspired from Brian De Palma 1974 film "Phantom of the Paradise".
“It’s basically a Seventies version of Phantom of the Opera, a movie musical,” frontman Claudio Sanchez told Rolling Stone. “With ‘Old Flames,’ I was trying to write something that sounded a bit more Fifties. I just sat behind my digital piano in my living room and constructed the opening piano sequence. I wrote it from there on piano — it wasn’t written on guitar. To me, it had a pretty powerful chorus. After writing that song, that put me in this mindset of writing that sort of material.”
Coheed and Cambria has currently toured in the UK and North America since September 11th through to November 14th.
