Late yesterday, Coheed lead singer, Claudio Sanchez, “leaked” an incredible acoustic version of the brand new song, “Sentry the Defiant,” to his fans on youtube , saying “Instead of making you wait until the album is released, I thought I’d share my excitement for this song with you now. I decided with this piece to video document it’s creation.” He added, ”This is literally the first time I played the song through in its entirety. His name is Sentry The Defiant.” The video has received 65,000 plays in less than 24 hours and seems to be spreading.
