Coheed And Cambria have announced that Zach Cooper has joined the band as their new bass player.

Cooper, who was formerly a member of rock band AM To AM, replaces Michael Todd in the prog rockers line-up. Todd left the band late last year after he was charged with armed robbery following an incident in July 2011.

The new four-stringer is the second new member to join Coheed And Cambria in recent months. In November, the band announced that their former drummer Josh Eppard had rejoined the band, replacing former sticksman Chris Pennie.

The band have posted a video in which they introduce Cooper, saying that his bass playing features "unbelievable flair" and that he "really excites them". You can see the video by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Coheed And Cambria are currently working with producers Michael Birnbaum and Chris Bittner on the follow-up to their 2010 album 'Year Of The Black Rainbow' and recently made a new track 'Sentry Of The Defiant' available as a free download.

They return to the UK this summer to play Reading And Leeds Festivals and are also set to tour North America as the main support band to Iron Maiden.
