Less than one month after the release of their album The Afterman: Ascension , Coheed and Cambria have announced the release date of the follow-up, and the dates of its supporting tour. The Afterman: Descension will drop on February 5, 2013 and will be supported by a six-week stretch of tour dates focusing on smaller, intimate venues.

In a press statement, the band says that the new album will "continue the conceptual storyline from volume one, where Sirius Amory, i.e., 'The Afterman,' is a scientist/cosmonaut who goes on celestial mission and makes what is arguably the most important discovery ever known to mankind.  But upon his return, he discovers his ambitiousness may have brought him fleeting fame, but also tragic repercussions."

The press release also states that the band expects sales of Descension to do "just as well if not better than" Ascension which sold more than 50,000 units during the first week following its release on October 9.
