I could never get into IKS like I wanted to despite loving a good amount of it.
To me IKS is one of those albums where even if it's not your favorite it's clearly their best, as in, the one that showcases their talent most effectively.
Nah that would be SSTB but ya know, opinions
Finally going to see these guys this year since they're bringing mwY and La Dispute with them so I can't say no. Hoping the setlist works well because I really like about half of their stuff and don't care for the other half. Looking at what they've been playing recently it seems like it should be solid though if they stick with something similar.
Good Apollo Volume 1 is probably my favorite record of all time. TCBTS was solid, glad they're still putting out quality stuff even if it may not reach the heights of their first 3.
Coheed fanboy checking in.
IKS and GA are my favorites, everything except NWFT and YOTBR are really great, and those two have great songs but aren't as solid front to back as the others.
People hating on YOTBR need to respect the good songs that are there. World of Lines, The Broken, In the Flame of Error, etc. are all jams. The title track is one of my least favorite Coheed songs ever though.
I enjoy Year of The Black Rainbow a great deal.
Claudio is doing a live feed on facebook right now. Says the next record will be part of the Amory Wars story.
They're (surprisingly) coming to Knoxville in October. Not gonna pick up tickets for awhile, but hoping to see them again if only for In Keeping Secrets...
I used to love this band....then shit fell apart. The only thing I'd care about now is if they finally decided to press Good Apollo V1 on vinyl.
I'm going to pass on seeing them this time in Georgia(Athens) since I've seen them play the same base set over and over. Love this band to death, but I'm a little burnt out on their live setlist selection..
Want this so bad, too.
Can't not love this band. Wasn't blown away by The Colour Before the Sun, and they've had a few misses throughout their albums, but seriously, 10-15 years ago did anyone think a tiny proggy-emo band named Coheed and Cambria would be were they are today? They've softened a lot of edges, to their musical detriment IMO, but evolved into a steady alternative rock group who bring something different to the edge of the mainstream. Couldn't be happier to have been following them from (almost) the beginning.
They're gonna be playing at a local 200 cap venue in Sept, and I'm so excited.
Fuuuuck that makes me jealous. Would love to see them in a tiny place at some point, they've settled into fairly big venues these days
Yeah I was really surprised when I saw where it was.
Saw them at a 500 capacity place and it was fantastic
I find myself revisiting this video of them playing at Saint Vitus often
I thought I would have plenty of time to purchase my ticket. It's not til Sept. Fucking sold out.
Has anyone paid for a ticket at the door when a show is sold out? Does it generally work out?
NWFT will always be my favorite
I'm not shocked. People really come out for Coheed these days. They damn near filled the Aragon Ballroom, which holds 5,000 people. From my experience I would just wait until a week before the show then scan Facebook and Craigslist and what not, you should be able to find a good deal
After multiple friends who are diehard fans told me that I should check out Coheed more, I'm finally starting on their discography in order. So far I've heard SSTB, IKS, and GA... honestly all great records. There's a lot to dig into, both musically and with the Amory Wars narrative (which I wasn't really following on first listen), but my initial impressions are VERY positive. Seeing them at Chain Fest in SoCal this September, very excited.
Def give IKS and GA v. 1 the most attention before you move onto the rest of their discography.
One of the best live bands you'll ever see.
I'm looking forward to seeing them live, the setlist they've been playing recently looks like it was made for me, haha.
