Goulding said, “This album for me is a journey from dark into light from confusion to understanding. I didn’t set out to write a break-up record but I think it became one.” The album’s first single, “Anything Could Happen,” will be released on August 13.

Coheed and Cambria – The Afterman: Ascension (Hundred Handed/Everything Evil, October 9)
Coheed and Cambria’s have announced that their upcoming sixth studio album will be a double concept album, The Afterman. The disc’s first half, The Afterman: Ascension, will be released this fall and the second, The Afterman: Descension, will follow in February 2013. The deluxe version of the album will include a hardcover coffee-table book with art by Heidi Taillefer and Nathan Spoor and collaborative written work from singer/creator Claudio Sanchez and writer Peter David. Sanchez said of the album, “This is without a doubt, the most honest record I’ve ever written. Though all the songs can be interpreted through our main character in the story, they were initially written in a very spontaneous manner. In the past, I’ve always had a predetermined idea of what the story was going to be when I approached the songs. With ‘The Afterman’ being a new story within ‘The Amory Wars’ arc, I allowed the events of my life to drive the concept, and therefore opened up the songwriting to a fuller degree.” Check out the album trailer below:

Jason Lytle – Dept Of Disappearance (ANTI-, October 16)
Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle will release a new solo album this fall. Lytle said, “[The album was inspired by] the raw and unflinching writings of Cormac McCarthy, whose sun-bleached, tough-as-nails characters have a ‘this could be you’ feeling. It’s the one song on the album that had a film playing along in my head as I was writing it. The chorus came to me while I was driving down a deserted Montana road into a beautiful and spooky sunset.” Listen to the new album’s title cut here.
