Coheed and Cambria have released their first single in almost three years, Shoulders.

Following the band's monstrous 2018 offering, Vaxis I: The Unheavenly Creatures – which was touted as their “return to concept” album after the more introspective The Color Before the Sun in 2015 – Shoulders is cast straight from the hard rock mold, with an killer, attitude-y main riff and an unbelievably catchy chorus. Watch the track's official lyric video below.
