From Chris PennieI am very thankful for the times I shared the stage with the guys in Coheed and especially want to thank the amazing, supportive fans that I've met while on tour. There are a lot of exciting projects on the horizon in addition to Return To Earth and Fight Mannequins that I feel require 100 percent of my commitment and attention. I feel that this is the right time to make that happen.

From Coheed & CambriaTough decisions were made today that will help shape this band for the coming years. We extend our deepest appreciation to Chris Pennie for an incredible journey.

Sucks. It felt like he wasn't around very long. I know he never played on No World For Tomorrow, but I know he wrote the parts. Hopefully they can find someone to replace him with no issues. I'm looking forward to hearing new music!

eppard's style fit them perfectly back then, not so sure now. Still think Josh is an amazing drummer though.

what a bummer, Chris Pennie is a fucking monster behind the kit. Hope they find a worthy replacement. glad i got to see them live while he was still in the band, he definitely added a lot to their live show.

Their sound changed when Pennie came in. Things got harder. Hopefully they bring back Eppard, and return to their pop sensibilities a little bit.

I admit I haven't heard the last record besides streaming it when it came out, but I don't think this is sad at all. Pennie is a very particular drummer and I think his style (or should I say, versatility) was a bit wasted on C&C.

C&C will be fine with another drummer. I hope Pennie lands some considerable success with one of his next projects.

edit: as for the previous record, I don't know how much of the drumming Taylor Hawkins adapted to his own style from what Pennie wrote, but it does feel like Hawkins through and through. That might actually further proof of Pennie's talent, but it still makes me feel like he was wasted on C&C.

Always thought Pennie was holding back for Coheed, hopefully they find a better fit.

Once they got big it was always Claudio and Trevor's band. Will be from here on out.

They'll be ok.
