Coheed and Cambria Unveil Stop Motion Driven ‘Number City’ Video

Coheed And Cambria, a band driven to find new creative avenues in their work, recently debuted the video for their song ‘Number City,’ a tune taken from their ‘The Aftermath: Descension’ album. The stop motion clip, which features the band collaborating with Australian animator Jonathan Chong, features a furry little creature undergoing an intense operation on his heart.

As frontman Claudio Sanchez sings “Oh, if you want to see / Go on and tear it out of me,” we see an operation in full effect. It’s not exactly a gory procedure, especially since the stop motion animation is such a visual treat. One of the video’s highlights features miniature emergency vehicles carrying various organs to the operating table as the unseen, scissor wielding doctor stitches our protagonist back together.

It’s a natural evolution for the band to employ stop motion for their videos, since Sanchez’s comic book series ‘The Amory Wars’ forms the thematic spine of much of Coheed and Cambria’s material. Expect the prog rock band to get even more attention if the planned film version of ‘The Amory Wars,’ which is being produced by Mark Wahlberg, gets made.

The band is currently on tour with the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival until Sept. 15, and that highly touted fest also features Alice in Chains and Jane’s Addiction. After a month’s respite, the group head back on the road in October and November for a series of North America and European dates. Their grueling trek begins Oct. 16 in Sayreville, N.J. (Starland Ballroom) and wraps up Nov. 26 in Berlin, Germany (Postbahnhof).

It will be a huge tour for Coheed, but thanks to the release of ‘The Aftermath: Ascension’ and ‘The Aftermath: Descension,’ two efforts that were initially conceived as a double album, Coheed And Cambria have tons of recent material to play. Their fall tour dates are listed below.
