The Pop Culture Road Trip


A band that matters…

posted by Chris Epting

On this, the eve of the tour, I thought I’d share this.

Back in January, I interviewed Claudio Sanchez about Coheed and Cambria’s upcoming tour –  going back to their roots, playing ‘The Second Stage Turbine Blade’ in its entirety (along with a special acoustic set and an additional electric set).

It was a for a Noisecreep.com piece I was writing and my son, a very serious Coheed fan (who got me into the group) was with me.

Beyond the amazing music, what always impressed me about this band is how they treat their fans. The shared loyalty and dedication is a fantastic thing to watch. Coheed makes the experience so interesting for its fans – keeping them involved and rewarding them with some of the most intense, inspired concerts being played today – and a thoroughly interesting, eclectic and challenging body of work.

To this awesome group of musicians – best of luck as you hit the road – and for the fans, here’s hoping you enjoy this part of our conversation.

Back from the Arctic...
Charlie and I made it back from the Actic and it was more spectacular than we imagined it would be. I've already written an article about it...   "Maybe it was the deep isolation in a blue and white ice world; maybe it was the spectacular nature or a combination of both. Whatever it wa
