I find it amusing that various versions of the biography for The Coral happens to mention that they were considered the next big thing by NME back in 2001. Unfortunately, that title has been tossed around just a little too often. Although they have yet to accomplish any world domination, their supportive fanbase (yours truly included) has been eagerly awaiting the release of their next album. For those of us in the US, we still have a few months to wait for the domestic release of Invisible Invasion on August 30. If you have some extra cash, you can always buy the UK import, which arrives on May 23.
To get a taste of the new tunes, The Coral are performing a handful of dates across North America. You can also click here to enjoy streaming audio from the new record.
