Coheed and Cambria announce North American trek for early 2019

Coheed and Cambria are ready to take their new album on the road next year! On Tuesday (Nov. 13), the New York-founded band announced plans to hit the touring circuit in early 2019. The headlining, United States-centric excursion will take place during the month of February with stops in Columbia, Charleston, Tallahassee, Houston, Knoxville, and more.

The trek will begin on Feb. 5 at the NorVa in Norfolk, Virginia and conclude a couple of weeks later on Feb. 28 at the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, New York. Joining the band on the forthcoming tour will be Foxing and Maps & Atlases. Foxing will play the role of supporting act for Coheed from Feb. 5 to Feb. 20 while Maps & Atlases will replace them from Feb. 22 to Feb. 28.

VIP and pre-sale tickets are currently available while general ticket sales begin this Friday, Nov. 16, at 10 a.m. local time.

In addition to the newly announced tour dates, the four-piece also released the live music video for their song, “The Dark Sentencer.” Watch the clip above.

“The Dark Sentencer” is featured on Coheed’s recently released record, Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures. The album, the group’s ninth studio effort, was released in October, peaking at the number 14 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

The tour announcement comes a week after frontman Claudio Sanchez had fans in a frenzy thanks to a photo he uploaded online. Sanchez, who is well-known for his mound of crazy hair, posted an image on social media sans his iconic ‘fro. Fans were confused, taken aback, and a little freaked out, but it turned out to be a joke. Sanchez took to social media the following day to post another imagine showing that his iconic hair was still intact.

Coheed and Cambria sign with Roadrunner Records, tease new album

Back in February, Coheed and Cambria announced they would be hitting the road alongside friend band Taking Back Sunday for a summertime excursion. Typically, when a band decides to hit the road during the hottest months of the year, it means that something big should be expected from them in the near future. On Wednesday (April 4), Coheed and Cambria officially announced that they had joined the Roadrunner Records family.

The band made the announcement the only way they know how to; with a mini theatrical video. The one-minute clip, which could easily fit in to the world of Friday the 13th, begins with grainy footage of a pair of hands working on something. Since the video is all about being mysterious, the viewer is not privy to the identity of the item. About 20 seconds into the clip, a gravelly voiced narrator begins to speak and the viewer is finally able to get a full look at what the creepy pair of hands were working on; a hockey mask.

Towards the end of the clip, the camera zooms out and the viewer gets a full look at the hockey mask which has the words “call your mother” scribbled on it. The screen goes black only to return with “Roadrunner Records” and the year 2018 appearing on the screen in white. Watch the “Call Your Mother” clip above.

The inclusion of 2018 in the video only adds speculation that the band will release new music sometime this year. Coheed and Cambria’s last studio album was 2015’s The Color Before the Sun. The still-unconfirmed album will be the group’s ninth studio album and first to be officially released through Roadrunner; their fifth studio record, Year of the Black Rainbow, was released through Roadrunner in Europe.

Taking Back Sunday, Coheed and Cambria announce joint summer tour

Just when you thought the list of summertime tours couldn’t get any longer, Taking Back Sunday and Coheed and Cambria have decided to change that. On Tuesday (Feb. 20), the bands announced plans to hit the touring circuit during the months of July and August for a co-headlining excursion. The summer tour, which does not have an official name, will kick off on July 6 at Bayfront Park in Miami and wrap up a little over a month later on Aug. 12 at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix.

Hitting the road alongside Taking Back Sunday and Coheed and Cambria for the full tour will be California five-piece The Story So Far.

“It’s funny, we’ve been friends all of this time but we’ve never done a full tour together,” said Taking Back Sunday drummer Mark O’Connell about hitting the road with Coheed and Cambria. “We ran into each other at some festivals last year and got to talking about it, and here we are.”

While all three bands took to social media to confirm the upcoming tour, Coheed and Cambria all but confirmed plans to make their show unforgettable since most will take place at outdoor venues. “The shows will mostly be outdoors and we’ll make them special,” read the band’s Twitter post.

Pre-sales will begin this Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 10 a.m. local time using the password TIDALWAVE. General ticket sales will begin on Friday, Feb. 23, at 10 a.m. local time.

While there has been no talk about new music from any of the bands on the roster, Taking Back Sunday did release their most recent album, Tidal Wave, back in 2016 while Coheed and Cambria’s last studio album, The Color Before the Sun, was released in 2015. Unlike Taking Back Sunday and Coheed, The Story So Far reportedly entered the studio last year to begin recording their fourth studio album.

Blink-182, Coheed and Cambria, Jack White to headline Bunbury Music Festival 2018

Blink-182, Coheed and Cambria, and Jack White are just some of the bands who make their way to Ohio in early June for this year’s Bunbury Music Festival. On Friday (Jan. 26), the Cincinnati-based music festival unveiled its lengthy and rock band-centric lineup for the 2018 incarnation of the annual event.

Blink-182 spent most of last year on the road touring behind 2016’s release, California, as well as dropping music videos for as many of the record’s tracks as possible. Much like blink, Coheed and Cambria hit the road in the spring of 2017 where they performed their third studio album, Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness, in its entirety at every show.

As for Jack White, Bunbury is another music festival that the musician will perform at during the summer months. Earlier this month, the former White Stripes frontman confirmed not only the release of his third studio album (Boarding House Reach), but also a lengthy tour which includes all his previously announced music festival appearances.

Joining blink-182, Coheed and Cambria, and White on the bill for the music festival’s seventh year will be Incubus, Royal Blood, Foster the People, Third Eye Blind, Dropkick Murphys, Young the Giant, The Front Bottoms, Peter Bjorn and John, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Fitz and the Tantrums, Misterwives, LANY, and many more.

“We are very excited about the lineup we’ve put together for 2018,” says PromoWest Productions’ Scott Stienecker in a press release. “The caliber, strength and depth of this year’s festival is attributed, in large part, to the city of Cincinnati and its continued support to make this one of the premier boutique musical festivals in the country.”

Tickets for the three-day music festival are currently available with three different ticket options to pick from. For more information, head on over to Bunbury’s website here.

Bunbury Music Festival 2018 is set to take place during the weekend of June 1-3 at the music festival’s usual location along the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati. As with previous years, the festival will encompass the entire area throughout Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove.

For now, the complete lineup for the 2018 incarnation of Bunbury Music Festival can be seen below.

Coheed and Cambria announces ‘NEVERENDER GAIBSIV’ tour

Coheed and Cambria has returned with some good news for their fans; they’ll be hitting the road this spring!

During the trek, the band will perform their third studio album Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness in its entirety at every show with the exception of their festival appearances (Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, and Rock on the Range). The Dear Hunter, who previously hit the road with Coheed, will once again open for them during this excursion.

The tour announcement comes a day after the band posted a mysterious video online. Fans were quick to solve the cryptic message which mention a date “1/27/17” and “pw: tenspeed.” The cryptic and eerie two-minute clip can be seen above.

Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness was released in September of 2005 and  is arguably one of Coheed’s most successful record, producing hit singles such as “The Suffering” and “Welcome Home.”

Coheed fan club members will be given the opportunity to purchase tickets ahead of time with their pre-sales beginning Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. local time.

We get to witness the guys rehearsing, warming up for a gig, goofing around backstage, and then hitting the stage for  the type of Coheed and Cambria show fans have grown to expect. All in a days work.

“‘Colors’ brings us to the end of our album cycle, a tribute to all the fans that made it a successful one,” frontman Claudio Sanchez said in a statement. Watch the music video for “Colors” below.

“Colors” is featured on the deluxe edition of Coheed and Cambria’s eighth studio album, The Color Before The Sun: Deconstructed. The record was re-released this past August and gave them an excuse to hit the road with Saves the Day. The original record, The Color Before The Sun, was released back in 2015 and was the band’s first album that was not a concept record. Instead, the album was told from Sanchez’s point-of-view on live events such as fatherhood, feelings of losing a home, and more.

His own story is told through big, bright, driving, colorful songs that beam like power-pop, crunch like vintage ‘90s emocore and float with the expansive feel of space-rock.”

Inaugural Wrecking Ball Fest Revise Line-Up Time Slots

Ever wish you had the power to change a music festival’s schedule just because certain artists that you would like to see play at the same exact time?

This seems to be one of the biggest issues with music festivals that have line-up that feature great artists, but a crazy scheduling process.

As much as you complain about the time slots conflicting, festivals and their organizers really don’t care and in a way tell you to take it or leave it.

Well, as it turns out, there is a music festival out there that has taken the attendees complaints to heart and decided to change their daily schedule.

Wrecking Ball revealed today an updated daily schedule after listening to fans complain about the time slots conflicting.

Why would you have both main stage performance times start and end at the same time? Same for the other two stages.

It looks like the Atlanta festival decided it would be wise to change the times on the schedule so concert goers can at least see 15 minutes of the main bands later in the evening.

Check out the newly revised daily schedule below.

The Wrecking Ball Festival will hit Atlanta during the weekend of Aug. 8-9. The festival is in honor of Atlanta concert venue, The Masquerade, celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Coheed and Cambria Unveil New Album, New Song

COHEED AND CAMBRIA To Release First Non-Conceptual Album 'The Color Before The Sun'

Coheed and Cambria are back with a new song and a new album on the horizon.

The band, who have become know for their concept albums as well as frontman Claudio Sanchez’s massive hair, have unveiled they will be releasing their eighth studio album in the Fall.

The record which has been titled The Color Before the Sun will mark the first non-concept record from the New York band.

While speaking to Kerrang! about the impending release, Sanchez revealed that they wanted “people to know that Coheed can write that sort of record. I’ve always said in the past that there’s never been a limitation on the band. It makes no sense to me to draw a line in the sand and never cross it.”

In anticipation of the new album, they have released the lyrics video for the first single off of it; a track titled “You’ve Got Spirit, Kid.”

Listen to “You’ve Got Spirit, Kid,” below.

The Color Before the Sun is set to be released on Oct. 9 through 300 Entertainment, a recently formed record label. While “You’ve Got Spirit, Kid” is currently streaming, the song will become available for digital download, globally, on Friday, July 10.

Just a few weeks ago, Coheed and Cambria made news when they joined forces with Funny or Die for an unexpected song which came courtesy of Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s dissenting opinions of the Affordable Care Act and Same-Sex Marriage rulings. That can be seen here.
