About Coheed and Cambria
The early days of Coheed
and Cambria featured bandmates and friends Claudio Sanchez and Travis Stever, who went through a variety of bandmates and
band names during the mid 90s. The duo would recruit various musicians and change names several times, including 'Toxic Parents',
'Beautiful Loser', and 'Shabutie'. With each new incarnation of the band, that experimental nature of the band members would
move their sound closer and closer to the music phenomenon of Coheed and Cambria that is so well known and loved today. The
band toured and wrote extensively while operating under the name Shabutie, and it wasn't until 1998 that the band's lineup
and sound was consistent enough that they renamed themselves to Coheed and Cambria.
Under the creative direction of
the band's frontman Claudio Sanchez, the name change coincided with a choice to move the band in a conceptional direction,
where all future albums would be a musical form of storytelling that would feature the titular protagonists of Coheed and
Cambria. With the lineup set and direction of the band established, they were quickly signed to Equal Vision Records, where
they immediately became spearheads of the prog rock movement, influenced by such major acts as At The Drive In and Bad Brains.
The band soon began touring internationally, including a period of time spent on the infamous Vans Warped Tour, and coasted
along with moderate success until they met manager Blaze James, who positioned the band for their next big step into the mainstream.
would soon take a serious step into the big leagues when they made a multi record commitment to label giant Columbia Records,
and released a near constant string of records that were both commercial and critical mega hits. Pressure would mount as some
band members shuffled in and out of the band, but the core of Coheed and Cambria remained and their musical path firmly charted.
Nearly two decades later, Coheed and Cambria is at the tip top of their game, and possibly the most well known progressive
rock band on the planet.
The band's first mega success would be 2003's In Keeping Secrets
of Silent Earth: 3, which despite its lengthy name would hit #5 on the US Indie chart and secure a cool platinum certification,
solidifying Coheed and Cambria not just as talented progressive musicians, but as commercially viable. This would pave the
way for the #7 charting follow up Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness. This
next exciting chapter in the Coheed and Cambria story, and combined the albums featured some of their biggest hits including
"A Favor House Atlantic", "Blood Red Summer", "The Suffering", and "Welcome Home", with the latter being featured in major
animated motion picture Nine.
The band's most recent releases, the companion releases of 2012 The Afterman: Ascension
and 2013's The Afterman: Descension, would again score big across the board, hitting the #5 and #9 spots on the Billboard
200, respectively. The albums were carried by the particularly strong singles "The Afterman" and "Dark Side of Me".
The stories told throughout all of Coheed and Cambria's concept albums have companion comics, telling
the various stories of the Coheed and Cambria universe visually. These comics are straight from the mind of the band's frontman
