American rock group, Coheed and Cambria, was formed in New York in 1995. Initially, it was called Beautiful Loser. The current lineup includes a vocalist, guitarist, and keyboardist, Claudio Sanchez, a guitar player and back vocalist, Travis Stever, a keyboards player and back vocalist, Josh Eppard, and guitarist and back vocalist Zach Cooper.
In 1996, the artists changed the name to Shabutie. Five years later, the band was renamed once again. That time it became Coheed And Cambria. The leader of the band was Claudio Sanchez. He came up with ideas for the band’s lyrics and music.
Coheed and Cambria’s music was always hard to classify. Musicians mixed several genres, such as emo, progressive rock, and metal. The first album they released in 2002 was The Second Stage Turbine Blade. It came out with the assistance of Equal Vision Records. To support the LP, the band toured the USA for an entire year. The album became the second part of a five-part saga.
In 2003, the band released a new album, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. It was the third part of the saga. The LP was more successful than the predecessor and reached the 52nd spot of Billboard 200. Eventually, it earned gold status. Singles, "Blood Red Summer" and "A Favor House Atlantic", appeared on MTV. After the release, the group embarked on a tour of North American with Thrice, Thursday, AFI, and Rainer Maria.
