Around for roughly 15 years this New York based rock band was originally called "Shabütie", but changed that when founding member/drummer Nate Kelley left the band. It is hard to pin down their musical sound as they use influences from prog rock, heavy metal, punk, and post-hardcore. Coheed and Cambria's influences are as wide and varied as they have cited Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Police, Queen, Bad Brains, and Iron Maiden as bands that have shaped their sound.
The band has released five studio albums and they have all been concept albums. Each one has been written by frontman Claudio Sanchez and is based on a science fiction work called The Armory Wars. The band's name is based on two of the characters in the story.
Veterans of the road, Coheed and Cambria have toured with the likes of Linkin Park, The Used, Slipknot, and AFI. They have also become mainstays on the annual Vans Warped Tour. When they are not in the studio recording an album, this is a band that continually tours.
