Coheed and Cambria’s star had never been higher. Claudio Sanchez and his bandmates stood amongst the most celebrated progressive rock acts of the past decade. Not the departure of sticksmith Chris Pennie, not even their ex-bassist’s drug store robbery could drag them down.

In a pair of shove-crazy years, it was a zenith of surreality. No, not when former bassist Michael Todd left in sub-Tap circumstances, whose exit was followed in short order by that of Dillinger Escape Plan founder, Chris Pennie. This July, at San Diego Comiccon, Mark Wahlberg announced he’d picked up Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez’s conceptual opus, The Amory Wars, for a live action feature. We all like to see something behind the eyes of bands we put our faith into. A blockbuster movie isn’t what first springs to mind.
