Primus & Coheed And Cambria

Primus & Coheed And Cambria

Primus is an American rock band formed in El Sobrante, California in 1984. The band is currently composed of bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry “Ler” LaLonde, and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander. Primus originally formed in 1984 with Claypool and guitarist Todd Huth, later joined by drummer Jay Lane, though the latter two had departed the band by the beginning of 1989 and were replaced by LaLonde and Alexander respectively.

The “classic” lineup of Claypool, LaLonde and Alexander debuted with the live album Suck on This, which was self-released in 1989 on Claypool’s label Prawn Song and reissued a year later by Caroline Records. Caroline also released Primus’ debut studio album Frizzle Fry (1990), which was critically well received, and its underground success led to interest from major record labels. Their second studio album and major-label debut Sailing the Seas of Cheese (1991), released through Interscope Records, launched the band into mainstream exposure, supported by their first charting single “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” and receiving platinum certification within a decade after its release. Primus repeated its success with their next two albums, Pork Soda (1993) and Tales from the Punchbowl (1995), both charting in the top ten on the Billboard 200, and being certified platinum and gold respectively by the RIAA; the former album featured the band’s top ten hit on the Billboard rock chart, “My Name Is Mud”, while the latter’s lead single “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver” has the distinction of being their only song to chart anywhere outside of North America.

Coheed and Cambria are an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Travis Stever (guitars, vocals), Josh Eppard (drums, keyboards, backing vocals), and Zach Cooper (bass, backing vocals). The group’s music incorporates aspects of progressive rock, pop, heavy metal, and post-hardcore.

All of Coheed and Cambria’s albums except for 2015’s The Color Before the Sun are concept albums based on a science fiction storyline called The Amory Wars, a series written by Claudio Sanchez, which has been transcribed into a series of comic books as well as a full-length novel. The band has released ten studio albums, three live albums, and several special-edition releases. Six of their albums have reached the Billboard Top 10. The band’s tenth studio album, Vaxis – Act II: A Window of the Waking Mind, was released on June 24, 2022.
