Glory Days Presents: Coheed and Cambria

Standard

Do you remember those summer nights when you were young and the biggest problem on your mind was hitting puberty? I sure do. The soundtrack of my life, in that day and age, seemed to revolve around indie and rock bands. Coheed and Cambria was one of the bands that I discovered in middle school and have since forgotten about.

But that’s all about to change. Glory Days Presents… is proud to bring Coheed and Cambria to The Florida Theatre in Gainesville on May 3rd. Tickets are $25 in advance and $28 at the door. Buy them locally at High Tides or Hear Again Music or online HERE. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:45 p.m.

Hailing from Nyack, New York, Coheed and Cambria formed in 1995 after previous bands didn’t work out. The band has gone through multiple members but, as of now, it consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard and the newest member, Zach Cooper. They have released five studio albums and each is a concept album based on Sanchez’s science fiction storyline called The Amory Wars. This story has been turned into a full length novel, as well as a comic book series.

For avid followers of the band, Coheed and Cambria have announced that they will be releasing their next album in spring 2012. Sanchez has said that the album will go further into the past of The Amory Wars. Over the years, the band has gained popularity within the rock genre. One review done by Sputnikmusic says, “Coheed and Cambria manage to bring new life to a dying genre, and mix up the standard pop-punk scheme with creative and original riffs.

For as long as I’ve known about this band, I never knew that there were distinct influences and intriguing methods to their madness. They aren’t just a band trying to make it. They intertwine their music with their passion for storytelling, comic books and so forth, making their talent shine through every aspect of their work. They may be rock stars, but I believe their lyrics are what truly makes their music different from others. The Amory Wars is the basis for their lyrics and true emotion is conveyed because of this.
