– Coheed and Cambria
PRESS RELEASE: “Coheed and Cambria Announce Three New 2016 UK Dates Prior to Their Main Stage Reading & Leeds Festival Performances.
‘Coheed remain a live band like no other’ – Kerrang Mag 2015
‘Not many bands out there would be ploughing brave new artistic territory by not making a concept record but then Coheed and Cambria are not like many bands’ – Shortlist 2015
‘Straight up rock brilliance from the kings of prog’ – Big Cheese 2015
‘Enormous pop-rock’ – Classic Rock Mag 2015
‘Deft musical touches and accessible hook laden anthems’ – Metal Hammer 2015
Coheed and Cambria return to the UK for 3 very special shows in August to support their 8th studio album ‘The Color Before The Sun’. Supports for the shows will be La Dispute and mewithoutyou, and following the short tour around the album’s release, which sold out well in advance, these new dates will give the fans another chance to see Coheed and Cambria at the very top of their game.
Claudio Sanchez commented, ‘Over the years, the UK has become very important to us. The fact that we are still able to come over to play shows and experience festivals like Reading and Leeds, and have fans who are passionately interested in what we do – we consider ourselves lucky.’
Our UK dates are as follows:
Mon 22 Aug Glasgow O2 ABC
|Tue 23 Aug Manchester O2 Ritz|
Wed 24 Aug London O2 Forum Kentish Town
Fri 26 Aug Leeds Festival Main Stage
Sun 28 Aug Reading Festival Main Stage
‘The Color Before The Sun’ is the outfit’s first non-conceptual release, with the previous offerings forming the larger story of The Amory Wars, a science fiction saga depicting the story of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon. ‘The Color Before The Sun’ was recorded at St. Charles Studio in Nashville, and produced by Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church).
‘The Color Before The Sun’ marks the first opening up of Claudio Sanchez’ raw feelings, narrated from his own perspective. “I kind of want people to know that Coheed can write that sort of record,” he explained of the album’s departure from The Amory Wars. “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.”
