Late yesterday, Coheed lead singer, Claudio Sanchez, “leaked” an incredible acoustic version of the brand new song, “Sentry the Defiant,” to their fans on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmsua-OLY_8 , 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. The band is also giving away a free download to the audio of the song on their website, http://www.coheedandcambria.com
