Coheed and Cambria Announce U.S. Summer Tour with London's Porcupine Tree
Circa Survive Will Rejoin The Group For Several Dates
Year of the Black Rainbow Out Now on Paperback!
Fresh off a run of 27 sold-out US dates out of 27 tries, New York's indie-prog-metal-storytellers, Coheed and Cambria, announce their newest leg of dates, this time with legendary British prog-rock-masters Porcupine Tree. On tour in support of their latest CD/Novel release, Year of the Black Rainbow, the band will continue to play material to 3,000 + capacity venues with stops that include the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, The Joint in Las Vegas and War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN.
Circa Survive, who joined the band for their spring run, returns for the last lap of the tour which includes dates in: Columbus, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and 2 shows in VA and The Dear Hunter will open on all dates of the tour.
Coheed and Cambria's spring run of dates hit most of the major cities in the U.S. Resulting in sellouts of every date, including the 5500 capacity Central Park outdoor stage in NYC, 4500 tickets in Philadelphia and the 3800 Congress Theater in Chicago.
Coheed and Cambria's Year of the Black Rainbow charted #5 in its first week with over 50,000 sold, the band's highest career chart position, to which The Onion raved the album brings "higher expectations: cinematic ones" and is "atmospheric, even when it colossally rocks."
Time Out New York remarked that, "the band wisely refines a winning formula," and the Boston Globe commended the band's "driving urgency, and cinematic sweep"
The band also likely did something never done before, by releasing a Deluxe Edition of the album with a 352 page hardcover novel, Year of the Black Rainbow, penned by lead singer/guitarist Claudio Sanchez, with Best Selling Author, Peter David, which will be available on paperback July 27th via the band's website: www.coheedandcambria.com
The novel, which was first available as hardcover, limited-edition package that included the album has already sold out at 20,000 copies, will be available at your local book retailer this August as a paperback.
