Well done, Claudio Sanchez! The Coheed and Cambria frontman successfully fooled the internet, including us, into thinking he cut off his beautiful long mane of curly hair, only to reveal his signature locks in a dramatic fashion at the band’s show last night.
Sanchez had posted two photos on Instagram, one of him sporting a baseball cap with a Justin Bieber-like ‘do, and another one with a slicked-back style, sending his fans and music sites into a frenzy, thinking he had chopped off his glorious mane.
While Coheed and Cambria were performing at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri, last night, Sanchez sported the baseball cap look at the beginning of the band’s set only to bang his head to reveal his massive mane of hair, greeted by a loud roar from the crowd. The singer must have been hiding the rest of his long locks in a ponytail in the aforementioned Instagram photos. Check out video of the big reveal below via Coheed’s Instagram page, with the caption “Feels good to be free.”

We hereby consider ourselves trolled, but for some hard truth from Sanchez, check out our recent interview with the Coheed and Cambria frontman.
