The long awaited vinyl reissue of the landmark second studio album from Coheed and Cambria, 'In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3', will be released by Equal Vision Records/Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings on the 20th October.

All songs from the LP were remastered from the original analogue master tapes; therefore, the 2014 vinyl reissue of 'IKSEE: 3' will be offered to fans in three distinctive configurations.

There will be a 180g 2 LP audiophile pressing, a limited 'Neverender IKSEE: 3' Tour Edition tan splatter 2 LP (available starting September 5th exclusively at each tour stop), and a special Direct 2 Fan grey swirl splatter 2 LP available only on

Pre-orders are available now. Listen to the re-master of single 'A Favor House Atlantic' of which premiered exclusively on yesterday:

The band will celebrate the vinyl reissue of In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 by performing the epic album in its entirety on a major North American tour (all dates listed below). Dubbed "Neverender IKSSE: 3," the fall trek - which includes already sold-out dates in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Chicago, and other markets - gets underway September 5th at Riverside, California's Municipal Auditorium and continues through early October.

Originally released in 2003, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 immediately affirmed Coheed and Cambria as the era's leading purveyors of imaginative modern rock, fusing elements of hardcore punk, indie, pop, Metal, and prog with Sanchez's indelible voice and vision to create their own groundbreaking sonic universe.

Driven by the breakthrough with MTV and radio success of the singles 'A Favor House Atlantic' and 'Blood Red Summer', 'IKSSE: 3' ascended the upper half of the SoundScan/Billboard 200 on its way towards RIAA gold certification for US sales in excess of 500,000 (not to mention total worldwide sales now well over 1 million).

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
