Coheed And Cambria have announced that former drummer Josh Eppard has rejoined the band following the departure of Chris Pennie earlier this month. Eppard left the group in 2006 to seek treatment for drug problems, and the band said in a statement that inviting him back was a “giant leap of faith”.

They said: “We understand there are risks involved bringing Josh back into the fray. Even with his two years of sobriety, this is a giant leap of faith on our part. But at the end of the day, we have all grown up, and we have all been through so much, that playing with Josh again is sort of like coming home. It’s comfortable, it’s familiar, it just feels right”.

As previously reported, bassist Michael Todd was sacked from the band early this year after he was charged with the armed robbery of a pharmacy.
