Coheed and Cambria will embark on its first North American headline tour since fall 2007 beginning April 22, nine days following the April 13 release of its fifth studio album, Year of the Black Rainbow (Columbia). The five-week track marks Coheed and Cambria’s return to headlining its own shows following a two-year-plus period that has seen them invited to play along with the likes of John Paul Jones, Johnny Winter and others at Warren Haynes’ 2008 Christmas Jam, embarking on a pair of arena tours in support of Slipknot and Heaven & Hell, respectively, and appearing at festivals ranging from Austin City Limits to Lollapalooza to an upcoming Coachella set.
Support for the upcoming tour will be Circa Survive and Torche. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 20th.
The band recently made available a first taste of Year of the Black Rainbow by streaming the new song “The Broken” at www.coheedandcambria.com. The song is also available for purchase on iTunes, where it climbed to #5 on the Alternative Chart within hours of its release.
