Josh Eppard, drummer for rock band Coheed and Cambria, will be joining “Addiction Talk.” For more than two decades, Josh has been a seasoned musician, but in the early 2000s, it almost came to an end.
In 2002, Coheed and Cambria released their first studio album, first single and first music video, and by 2005, the band released their first major-label album, “Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness.” While his band was receiving international acclaim, unbeknownst to many, Josh’s substance use became unmanageable. In 2006, just after the release of his band’s most commercially successful album to date, he left.
During his time away, Josh continued to abuse substances: he release his second Weerd Science album, which was a personal account of his addiction, and began drumming for the supergroup Terrible Things.
Josh’s substance use continued after his resignation from the band until one day he decided to seek treatment. He left his hometown of Kingston, New York, moved to Albany and joined the supergroup Terrible Things.
Attempting to reestablish his relationship with his former bandmates, Josh began to reach out, and after seeing the changes he made in his life since his 2009 exit, nearly five years to the day of the announcement of his departure, it was announced he had rejoined.
Today, Josh has more 14 years in recovery and is thriving. Coheed and Cambria released their 10th album in 2022 and will be touring in Fall 2023. Josh has recently established Drum Set Confessional, an endeavor he uses to tell his story and inspire others.
