Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour. Wes Styles, long time member of the Coheed family will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled.
We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour. For now, we just want to have a great time out here and finish with some killer shows in Boston, Poughkeepsie, Quebec City and Halifax.
Todd allegedly walked into a Walgreens before a performance in Massachusetts. Reports say that Todd handed the cashier a note stating that he had a bomb and demanded Oxycontin. Once the cashier gave him the prescription pills he left in a cab on his way to The Comcast Center where Coheed and Cambria were scheduled to open for Soundgarden. A passerby who witnessed Todd entering the cab and surveillance videos led to Todd's arrest. He is currently being held under a $10,000 bond and is charged with armed robbery and possession of a controlled substance.
