After Coheed and Cambria played their hit single "Dark Side of Me" off "The Afterman: Descension" during soundcheck at New York City's Radio City Music Hall, frontman Claudio Sanchez discussed "The Amory Wars," the narrative thread that ties the band's seven albums with Sanchez's comics series of the same name.
"When I created the idea of Coheed and Cambria in 1998, the idea of the comic and the music, they were both sort of born together," he said. Initialy, Sanchez thought the comics would bring readers to his music, but as he told us, it was quite the opposite. "The music was certainly the flagship," he said.
About the proposed "Amory Wars" movie that Mark Wahlberg is producing, Sachez told us, "I'm not too familiar with that world, I imagine it's kind of slow."
Coheed and Cambria's "The Afterman: Descension" is available now.
