Coheed and Cambria's Claudio Sanchez Furthers His Sci-Fi Empire with The Amory Wars

Categories: Interview


Sanchez's wife of three years is indeed a big inspiration for his multi-faceted epic.

"She's helped me focus on all of the projects I work on, and she's sort of become a partner in these things," he says. Album closer "2's my Favorite 1" is a hard-earned love song that draws a big parallel between Sirius' hunt for his seemingly deceased wife and Sanchez's dedication to his partner. "I'm always out [on tour] thinking of my wife, but when she's here, I don't feel like I'm longing for home anymore," he says. "She's like that center for me."

Though the new film surely will bring his story to new heights, Sanchez's hopes for the project are highly personal. He explains that Coheed and Cambria themselves, who were the main characters in previous installments of the saga, are inspired by his blue-collar parents. "For me, I'd love to see [the movie] actually play out in its entirety just so my dad can watch it," he says.

Just like his albums can be approached either from the sci-fi superfan side entrance or through the casual fan front door, Sanchez hopes the movie will be just as accessible for someone seeking an exciting escape. "For my dad to work his ass off, come home at 5 p.m. and want to chill out and watch a movie," he says, "it would be amazing if one of those movies could be my own."

Coheed and Cambria is scheduled to perform Tuesday, February 26, at Marquee Theatre in Tempe.

Coheed is not an emo band. People may have thought they were 10 years ago with a couple songs, but come on, 7 albums of all out prog-rock with no hint of emo, and they still get stuck with that moniker. Calling Coheed emo is like calling Pink Floyd adult contemporary. I don't know if you can tell, but when you call Coheed emo, it really bugs their fans. A lot of authors of online articles about Coheed seem to know nothing about their past, and just look the band up on Wikipedia or something.
