Coheed and Cambria are doubling up on the releases today, choosing to launch not only the audio for their new single, "Domino the Destitute," but also the track's music video. If that's not enough to snatch your attention, the fact this video arguably mirrors that of a short film should do the trick. Directed by Robert Schober (Metallica, Mastodon, Disturbed) and shot entirely in black-and-white, the eight minute long video follows the tale of famed boxer Domino the Destitute, whose firecracker career came to a quick and violent end. It's an incredible ode to classic cinematography, and the juxtaposition between those fight scenes and Coheed's own maddening performance is explosive in its own right.
"Domino the Destitute" comes off the band's new album, THE AFTERMAN: ASCENSION, due out October 9. Check out the song and video, and grab your album pre-orders here.
