Coheed & Cambria Live in Malaysia

The third time’s the charm for the next installment of the BY DEMAND series.

You thought they would pass you by. You thought that the prog-emo of Coheed & Cambria (C&C) would never be played live in Malaysia, and you made your voices heard. Well, you can now celebrate as Junk is bringing in Coheed & Cambria in the third installment of By Demand, a series of live shows featuring artistes that YOU demanded and are now receiving.

C&C were formed in 1998 in Paris, and the band’s concept was adopted from frontman Claudio Sanchez’s series of web comics about a couple named Coheed and Cambria, and their son Claudio who was destined to be the saviour of the fictional Amory Wars universe. Their first album Second Stage Turbine Blade was heavily influenced by At The Drive-In and produced the single ‘Devil In Jersey City’. The band then went on to produce four more albums, all written within the concept of the Amory Wars which became a physical comic book thanks to publishing company Evil Ink. In 2008, C&C played a series of shows called Neverender which saw them playing their entire discography in four nights.

In 2008, C&C were also joined by former Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Chris Pennie, who Claudio credits to “tightening up their back catalog” with his timekeeping. Together, Claudio, Chris, Travis Stever (guitars) and Michael Todd (bass) released Year Of The Black Rainbow to critical acclaim on 13 April 2010. They also released a stunning video for the must-hear track ‘Here We Are Juggernaut’ and embarked on a world tour that included sharing the stage with guitar legend Slash.

So be prepared for Coheed & Cambria to stomp their juggernaut-sized mark on Malaysian soil this 1 August 2010 at KL Live for a night everyone will remember!
