Coheed & Cambria
Coheed & Cambria
Although originally forming as a rock trio in 1995, New York's Coheed and Cambria officially took root in 2001, shedding their former name of Shabutie and embracing a fusion of progressive rock, emocore, and highly conceptual album themes. Vocalist/guitarist Claudio Sanchez, guitarist Travis Stever, bassist Michael Todd, and drummer Joshua Eppard issued their group's full-length debut, 2002's The Second Stage Turbine Blade, on the Albany-based Equal Vision Records. The band toured extensively for more than a year in support of the album, which was created as the second installment (although the band's first release) of a five-part fictional saga about the doomed marriage of two characters, Coheed and Cambria, whose children may or may not be infected with a serum whose power can destroy the universe. The Amory Wars, a detailed graphic novel series written by Sanchez himself, further explains the band's science fiction narratives.

In fall 2003, Coheed and Cambria issued In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. The vibrant sophomore effort resulted in moderate success on the Billboard charts, with the singles "A Favor House Atlantic" and "Blood Red Summer" faring well on such media outlets as MTV. Coheed and Cambria subsequently toured North America with Thursday, Thrice, AFI, and Rainer Maria. They also joined the tenth annual Warped Tour in summer 2004 and embarked on their first headlining European tour, whose dates coincided with the success of the "Favor House Atlantic" single. The invigorated band then returned with Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness in September 2005; the album was also the first installment of a two-part conclusion to the band's running sci-fi story line. Released by Columbia Records, it hit number seven on Billboard's Top 200, partially due to the success of "The Suffering" and "Welcome Home."

Meanwhile, with the temporary enlistment of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, recording began on their fourth album, Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 2: No World for Tomorrow. The group's lineup was soon cemented with the addition of ex-Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Chris Pennie, and the album was released in October 2007, followed by the live recording Neverender: Children of the Fence in 2009. In 2010 the band returned with Year of the Black Rainbow, which served as a prequel to the Amory Wars story line. ~ Andrew Leahey & Bradley Torreano, Rovi
The Dear Hunter
The Dear Hunter
The Dear Hunter is a full-time project of Casey Crescenzo, formerly of post-hardcore band The Receiving End of Sirens. The band's sound is not unlike that of Casey's former band, but with more alternative and progressive rock tendencies and a wider variety of instrumentation.
Three
Three
3 is a band apart: Dark yet uplifting, spiritual without any connection to religion - theirs is a sound that transcends the genre conformity of modern pop culture. Rapid-fire acoustic guitar infused with dynamic percussion, animated drumming and thunderous bass culminate in a listening experience that is at once accessible and unique. Polyrhythms pulse within a symphony of driving metal guitars and melodic vocal acrobatics. 3 offers musicality without pretension.

The Woodstock, NY-based group began touring nationally in 2003 when they hit the road with Coheed and Cambria. They turned a lot of heads, winning audiences with their passion and unique brand of virtuosity. The buzz had begun, not just amongst music fans but within the industry as well.

Enter 2006, after the successful re-release of "Wake Pig" on Metal Blade Records, and the completion of their first world tour, 3 returned home to begin work on a new record. Drumming guru, Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello), offered up his legendary studio and drum collection, and so the boys set up shop and recorded their masterpiece: "The End Is Begun".

In anticipation of their new record's 7-24-07 release, 3 hit the road with Porcupine Tree Spring '07 touring all over the US and Canada to rave reviews. They caught the attention of Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy who said, "I've been a fan of theband3 from the moment I was turned onto their CD 'Wake Pig' in 2006... And as much as I already loved the CD, I was even more blown away by their live performance!" After a headlining run of Northeast US in support of "The End is Begun" in Summer '07, 3 headlined the ProgDay Festival in Chapel Hill, Virginia. One week later 3 hit the road again, but this time in support of German Hard Rock legends, Scorpions. October '07 Porcupine Tree took 3 out on the second leg of their North American "Fear of a Blank Planet" tour. 3 then kicked off another mini-headliner of the Northeast in Woodstock with their annual hometown Black Friday gig.

In 2008 3 toured with Chevelle, performed on the inaugural Progressive Nation tour (along with Dream Theater, Opeth, Between the Buried and Me) and embarked on their first headlining tour of North America. One can definitely expect to see great things from this band who has already received over 1,000,000 plays at MYSPACE.com.
