Coheed And Cambria and The Used are currently on tour together, but if you can’t catch a show in person, you may be in luck. The two bands have announced that they will be livestreaming their September 19 show at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. Tickets can be found HERE.
Coheed And Cambria have premiered a new video for their latest single “Shoulders.” The group commented:
“As a band, we’ve always been a little outside of the mainstream and that’s helped keep us true to ourselves. As people, it’s important to focus on your strengths and who you are, and not try too hard for acceptance. Everyone is special and has their own unique contributions and that’s what the video represents.”
Coheed And Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez has confirmed that the band are working on a new album. He told Consequence the following about that:
“I’ll be honest. A lot of times, with bands who’ve been around and built a strong fanbase like we have, I think there might be a tendency, intentionally or unintentionally, to try to give the fans what they want and not take too many risks. But after making music for so long and entering a pandemic, we didn’t want limitations to the creative process. The [next] record is going to be what I hope people perceive this band to be in 2021/2022. It’s a modern record. It’s a Coheed And Cambria record, but it’s looking forward, not backwards.”

Coheed And Cambria have teamed up with J Gursey Coffee Roasters to launch their own coffee brand, Coheed And Cambria Coffee Roasters. There are currently two blends available including “The Knowledge” and “The Beast,” which are inspired by the code names of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon from the band’s sci-fi concept arc “The Amory Wars.”
The band commented:
“We’re super excited to introduce Coheed and Cambria Coffee Roasters!
We’ve been working with the team at J Gursey Coffee Roasters to create custom blends that reflect the nuances of the characters who make up “The Amory Wars.”
“The Knowledge” is a smooth delicate blend of light and dark roasted coffees from the African/Ethiopian/South American regions. For inspiration and intellect.
“The Beast” is a robust medium/dark roast with a kick of espresso from the regions of African/Papa New Guinea/South America and Central America. For energy and drive.
“As an avid coffee drinker, I’ve been enjoying this experience of creating flavor profiles that embody the integral characters of our life’s work. They truly are what wake me up in the morning… and now, even more so.”
Coheed And Cambria have revealed the final lineup for their “S.S. Neverender” cruise. The event is scheduled to set sail from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas on October 25-29 and it will feature the following: Coheed And Cambria, Taking Back Sunday, Saves The Day, The Dear Hunter, Touché Amoré, Cloud Nothings, Polyphia, Ho99o9, Thank You Scientist, Sheer Mag, Spiritbox, Torche, Fire Deuce, Weerd Science, Three, Hail The Sun, and Peelander-Z. “Emo Nite” and chef Graham Elliot will also take part as well.
Coheed And Cambria have joined forces with NECA to create new action figures based on Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon from frontman Claudio Sanchez’s sci-fi series “The Amory Wars.” You can pre-order those as a set HERE. Sanchez commented:
“Lights, Camera, Action… Figures! I’m very happy to announce the release of our collaboration with NECA in bringing The Amory Wars line to life. As a child, toys played an integral role in the foundation of who I am now as a storyteller and the excitement never fades when I get to take this step with any of my creations.”
Coheed And Cambria have released a “Director’s Cut” of their song “Jesse’s Girl 2.“ As previously reported, that track serves as a sequel to Rick Springfield‘s hit single “Jessie’s Girl.“ A video for the regular version of the song, which features Springfield himself, can be found HERE. The “Director’s Cut,” which doesn’t feature Springfield, can be found below. Both versions of the song were also released on 7 inch vinyl yesterday (September 4).
Coheed And Cambria have written and a released a sequel to Rick Springfield‘s hit single “Jessie’s Girl.“ The track, which is called “Jessie’s Girl 2,” features Springfield himself and it can be found below. You can also pre-order a 7″ vinyl pressing HERE. That effort will be released on September 4 and it will also feature a “director’s cut” of the track. Claudio Sanchez commented:
“Has anyone ever written a sequel to another artist’s song? don’t think so. As a fan of movies, it just seemed like a really interesting idea.” He went on to describe the track as being “kind of like a National Lampoon’s movie meets So I Married an Axe Murderer.”
