Coheed and Cambria
New York City’s landmark venue Radio City Music Hall has been home to the Rockettes, classical performances and award shows over the years. Over the weekend it gave hard rock and metal a home as Coheed and Cambria, Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles rounded out their tour with a very special show.
Progressive rock quartet Coheed and Cambria will be releasing the second part of their 'Afterman' double album on Feb. 5, but fans won't have to wait until tomorrow to hear the band's seventh studio album. Coheed & Cambria's 'The Afterman: Descension' is now available for streaming in full at RollingStone.com (click below).
Former Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd is facing the most important battle of his life after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. The musician had surgery last year to remove the cancerous area, hoping that it had been isolated, but unfortunately the cancer had spread. Since then, Todd's medical costs skyrocketed, but he was able to take care of things financially up until recently. In order to help as he continues his fight, friends and supporters of Todd have launched a Give Forward campaign to help offset the costs of his cancer battle.
Coheed and Cambria have been known to pull out every stop to create an overall concept for their albums, but for 'The Afterman: Ascension,' singer Claudio Sanchez is at least preparing the band's fans for the next chapter with a video series explanation. Those who follow the group know their dedication not only to the music but also in creating an interweaving story with the songs and overall discs that the listener can dig into deeper should they choose.
