Published Jun 30, 2014Being a superfan of Coheed and Cambria has its perks. One of the operators of the band's official fan site, Cobalt and Calcium, recently ran into financial difficulties, and the prog rockers donated a chunk of cash to help pay the woman's mortgage and save her home.
Mississippi-based fan Cyndi Crouch started a GoFundMe campaign on June 24, explaining that her husband was having his wages garnished due to an unpaid bill. Making matters more serious, Cyndi has two kids, plus a stepson, and is eight months pregnant with another child.
She was asking for $3,500 and, as TMZ points out, Coheed and Cambria donated $3,000 of their own money to the cause. They wrote on her GoFundMe page, "Cyndi, You have been there for us for so long, we deeply appreciate your neverending support. You will get through this! Sincerely, Coheed and Cambria."
In response to the generous donation, Cyndi wrote an update thanking the band and their fan base, known as the Children of the Fence. She wrote, "If I live for another hundred years, I will spend them doing exactly what I have been, telling everyone about this band, this community, showing my support in everything they do not only as a band, but as individuals as well. They deserve it because of the people they are, kind thoughtful and caring, selfless and giving. For seeing a family and need and saving our lives, our gratitude is deep and Neverending."
Coheed and Cambria recently announced that they will spend the late summer and early fall touring their 2003 album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. You can see all the upcoming dates here.
