As previously reported, Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd was fired from the band after being arrested by Attleboro, MA Police, after showing a Walgreens pharmacist a note on his cell phone which said he had a bomb and that he wanted some Oxycontin. Oxycontin! Really? Then to make matters worse, he fled the scene via taxi with six bottles of pain pills. Police arrested him without any incidents outside of the Comcast Theater where Coheed and Cambria were scheduled to open up for Soundgarden (the band performed without him). He was charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics. He was released on July 25th after posting a $25,000 bail, and is currently awaiting trial.
The band has announced that Zach Cooper is the NEW bassist of the band via this introductory video:
The band had previously announced, the return of drummer Josh Eppard, as the replacement of Chris Pennie (who quit the band last year). The band is stoked to be back in form. They recently toured all over North America as part of the "Maiden England" tour with IRON MAIDEN.
