Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez has revealed that he hopes to make the band’s music safe for Twitch streams in the future.
Since 2001, Coheed and Cambria have been one of the most popular progressive rock bands with songs spanning 10 albums – their most recent being Vaxis II, released in June 2022.
Outside of musical creation, the group’s leader, Claudio Sanchez, has been a bit of a Tic streamer, amassing over 13,000 subscribers since April 2020.
As Twitch grows in popularity with the musicians like Claudio, fans are wondering whether or not they can stream their music without the risk of DMCA strikes.
In a recent interview with The Washington PostClaudio updated fans on his stance on fans streaming their favorite Coheed and Cambria songs.
Claudio Sanchez wants to secure Coheed songs for Twitch
During the interview, Claudio revealed that potential DMCA issues resulting from playing licensed music is one of the reasons he removes his Twitch VOD after streaming.
Sanchez also added that he wants to make Coheed’s extensive library available for streamers to play safely while they stream, even going so far as to say, “I think at some point this will probably become a reality. .”
Currently, Twitch creators cannot stream licensed music without risking a DMCA strike that can result in anything from getting your VOD or clip removed, to getting your channel banned.
If a band as big as Coheed and Cambria were able to make their music safe for Twitch streamers around the world, it could pave the way for more bands to follow suit – which would be huge for the platform.
