Taking note of the rise Co&Ca is experiencing, Spin magazine have included the band in their "Next Big Things" issue out this month and Alternative Press profiles the band in their "100 Bands you need to know" issue.

Although nothing has been confirmed, it seems likely that Voivod bassist Jason Newsted will join Ozzy’s live band, replacing Robert Trujillo.
