Creating Coheed and Cambria’s Conceptual Adventures

[Former bassist] Mic [Todd] left in 2006, rejoined and left again in 2011, the same year [drummer] Chris [Pennie] left. Did their departures have anything to do with the fact that Coheed and Cambria isn’t just a simple rock band?

No. If what you’re asking me is whether the concept dictates how we’re part of the band, no, that’s not how it works. The concept does not dictate when I’m writing a guitar part or when Claudio’s writing a guitar part. The concept is: Where he’s going to go with it lyrically after he’s already come up with the subject? How ’bout that? That’s a good way to describe it. “[Here We Are] Juggernaut” was a song from Year of the Black Rainbow. It was about him and his wife; about them coming together and being a force to be reckoned with. But then it took on a whole new life when it became this thing in the story. It’s almost like everything has two sides to it—the real side and the fiction.

Do you “conceptualize” your concerts in a similar way, or just put a bunch of songs together?

We put a bunch of songs together but we will have interludes and stuff to tie it in, almost make it like a moving story, in a way, throughout the set. Especially on this tour that’s coming [to SA], we hand-selected a good amount of songs that seem to be really exciting people and also that we’re going to have fun playing for them.
