Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band formed in Nyack, New York.The band has been active since 1995, although they did not go by the name Coheed and Cambria until 2001, when Nate Kelley left the band. Before this they were known as Shabűtie, and for a brief period, Beautiful Loser.

Coheed and Cambria's albums are concept albums, revealing the plot of a storyline called The Amory Wars, written by lead singer Claudio Sanchez. To date, the band has released four studio albums, two live albums, and various special-edition releases, with their latest release being Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow in 2007.

Following extensive touring with groups like Breaking Pangea and The Used, the band recorded and released their second studio album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3 in October, 2003, once again on Equal Vision. Featuring the singles "A Favor House Atlantic" and "Blood Red Summer" and corresponding videos which received airtime on MTV, the band supported the release by touring with artists such as Thursday, Thrice, AFI, and Rainer Maria, as well as their second appearance on the Warped Tour and an additional set of European shows. The album peaked at #52 on the Billboard charts and was certified Gold by the RIAA. An August 2004 show at New Jersey's Starland Ballroom in support of the album was filmed and became the band's first live DVD, Live at the Starland Ballroom, released in March 2005.

Coheed and Cambria once again started touring infrequently, when they could line up gigs in support of In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3, finally stopping to record their third release and major-label debut Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness in the spring of 2005 for a September 2005 release on Columbia Records, with whom they had signed a multi-album contract. Their most commercially successful album to date, Good Apollo Volume One has sold almost 1 million copies and peaked at #7 on the Billboard charts. Featuring three singles, "Welcome Home", "The Suffering", and "Ten Speed (Of God's Blood and Burial)", the album represented a departure from their previous melodic post-hardcore influenced rock toward a progressive rock sound, such as longer tracks, some consisting mostly of extensive guitar solos. The band supported the album on American and European tours with The Blood Brothers, Circa Survive, Head Automatica and Avenged Sevenfold, culminating in the release of the exclusive iTunes EP Kerrang!/XFM UK Acoustic Sessions and their second live DVD The Last Supper: Live at Hammerstein Ballroom.
