The Story Behind The Song: Coheed And Cambria's Welcome Home

Claudio Sanchez lifts the lid on the track that made Coheed unlikely household names

It Was Written At Mom’s House

“The song was written when I was still living in my parents’ house! I was still working a normal 9-5 job, so being in Coheed wasn’t a full-time thing. We had just signed to Columbia so it was becoming that, but I was living in their downstairs area. I remember getting the riff and then moving into the chord progression, and being so excited… then my mother walked in to do the laundry! I was in my boxers and she’d caught me in this heightened creative moment. It was pretty embarrassing.”
