It is the first Coheed and Cambria album since 2005's Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness to feature Josh Eppard on drums, and the first to feature Zach Cooper on bass.

It's earliest release was the Special "Amory Award" Edition on September 10, 2012, with the official release on October 9, 2012.


The two albums act as a prequel to even Year of the Black Rainbow, and concentrate on the character Sirius Amory, whom the series is named after. It is considered the earliest story in The Amory Wars. Sirius is a bold scientist often called a kook, trying to uncover the secrets of the Keywork.
