“Hello everybody. No one will be surprised to hear that Neverender: NWFT will not take place this fall in the live setting. We have been looking at ways to present it to you at home in a way we feel is worth the Neverender brand, and so far, we have not achieved that. We will keep working on ideas and will only present it if it is truly worth waiting for. Refunds for NWFT tickets are available at point of purchase. Thank you for your neverending support, Coheed And Cambria.”

Coheed And Cambria Postpone “S.S. Neverender” Cruise To 2021

No payments needed until reannouncement, and new payment plans will be offered if needed. We apologize for any inconveniences, but this just gives us more time to make this the best damn vacation you ever had!”

Claudio Sanchez Says Coheed And Cambria’s New Album Is About 75% Written

During an appearance on MetalSucks‘ “Quarantinecast,” Coheed And Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez offered an update on the band’s next album. According to him, the effort is about 75% written.

Sanchez said the following:

“I’ve got about maybe 75% worth of a record [written]. The concept is pretty much in a lock. I’ve actually started talking with Chase Stone, who did the last album’s art as well as the companion illustrated novel that went with it. So we’ve been slowly talking about some of the conceptual things and maybe we’ll start bringing this part of the story to life.

Funny, I started this song in September, it was called ‘Hallelujah Quarantine.’ It’s crazy! So in the second part of Vaxis, there’s this criminal organization called The Liar’s Club and they have this thing that sort of travels through the galaxy and they call it The Quarantine, not the actual structure but they have this celebration called The Quarantine.

It’s almost like a cotillion where the young come to party and to decide their fates. But this organization is really just taking these young kids to use them as blood banks.

Thats a very loose part within Vaxis II, this story. Looking at this, I’m like, man, I don’t know if this song is now insensitive for what we’re enduring.

Is this even going to be a part of it? Am I going to have to rename this whole sort of thing that’s happening in the story and rewrite this song? I don’t know.

There are songs. I’m not really all that worried about it. It’s just crazy that I kind of just stumbled upon this tune and I’m like, ‘Aww man. How am I gonna do that one?’”

Coheed And Cambria Drummer Josh Eppard To Undergo Heart Procedure Following Onstage Faint, Band Cancel Remaining 2019 Dates

Coheed And Cambria have been forced to cancel their remaining 2019 shows due to drummer Josh Eppard requiring a cardiac ablation procedure to deal with a heart condition. This news comes after Eppard previously fainted onstage during the band’s October 19 show at the House Of Blues in Orlando, FL:

Coheed And Cambria issued the following statement:

“Big Announcement:

Hello Everyone,

As some of you may have heard, our fantastic drummer, Josh Eppard had a fainting spell on stage early in our set Saturday night in Orlando. After a visit from the paramedics, he insisted on coming back out to finish the show- which was extremely courageous – but even with the amount of awe we felt, everyone was very concerned.

Upon his return home, Josh’s doctors advised him to undergo a procedure called a “cardiac ablation” in the coming weeks. This procedure will close an “extra pathway” to Josh’s heart, which has been causing an irregular heartbeat for some time, and is believed to be responsible for the occurrence in FL.

Due to the necessity of this procedure, Coheed and Cambria will be canceling the rest of our 2019 dates to let Josh get back to full health, so that we can make sure there will be a World for Tomorrow. We apologize from the bottom of our hearts to fans in the Midwest and those in Australia, as well as the organizers of these shows. We feel strongly that an abundance of caution is the best move for Josh and for the band at this time. Let there be no confusion, we will be back bigger and stronger in 2020, and are already planning big announcements on the horizon.

If you want to follow Josh on this journey, he will surely be documenting it on his socials @weerd_science
Thank you for your Neverending support,

Coheed and Cambria“
