Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness is the third studio album by progressive rock quartet Coheed and Cambria. It was released on September 20, 2005, through Equal Vision Records and Columbia Records, and is the first release on a major label.
This chapter of the saga introduces The Writer, who lives in The Reality and suffers from mental issues. In his psychosis, he believes his girlfriend (Erica Court), is cheating on him. His ten speed bicycle is stolen, and after finding it, believes it is possessed by a demon-like entity. He comes to be convinced that the only way to make things right is to kill Newo or Ambellina whom he based on Erica.

In 2008, the band performed all four of their released albums in their entirety over four consecutive nights (one per night) throughout select cities. (Named Neverender.) The success of these limited shows led to the band deciding to replicate the format in more cities but limited the experience to one album per tour.
