So if you can, I strongly recommend you try and catch the bands live for one last celebration at their last announced tour dates.They’ve made an incredible impact with their interesting take on progressive rock since their formation, and by doing so they’ve gained themselves a loyal fan base who are always excited to see what they will accomplish next, yes I’m talking about Coheed & Cambria who are the main feature in this issue!
