coheed 118While Coheed and Cambria were in Salt Lake City to play a show at the legendary Great Saltair on February 15, 2013, I had the amazing opportunity to sit down and ask Coheed’s bassist Zach Cooper some questions. Cooper was officially announced as the new bass player for the band at the end of April 2012. Coheed and Cambria also reunited with original drummer Josh Eppard, recently released a two-part LP, and is currently on tour promoting the new record with Russian Circles and Between the Buried and Me.

In this interview we talk about auditioning for Coheed, the new double release album The Afterman: Ascension and Descension, his influences as a bass player, touring with Iron Maiden and much more! Here is my in depth interview with Zach Cooper of Coheed & Cambria. Enjoy!
