Coheed and Cambria Announce 2016 Tour

On the heels of their first week of sales of The Color Before The Sun, Coheed And Cambria are pleased to unveil their next round of U.S. headline dates. The new tour will commence in Boston on February 22, 2016 and take the band through major U.S. markets including a show at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City on March 4, 2016. The tour will wrap up in Denver on March 27th. Support on all dates will come from Glassjaw and Silver Snakes.
The announcement comes shortly after the release of Coheed’s new album. The Color Before The Sun, which dropped October 16 via 300 Entertainment marks the band’s first non-conceptual album to date and their 6th consecutive Top 10 Billboard charting album, and their third to debut at #5 on the Billboard top current chart with 32,000 units sold.
The touring news, which sees the band play for the first time in rooms like Aragon Ballroom, Hollywood Palladium and Madison Square Garden, also comes alongside the premiere of a brand-new live video of the four-piece performing the album’s first single, “You Got Spirit, Kid” at a recent secret show at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY. The video can be found on Billboard.com
Coheed and Cambria’s ten song album, The Color Before The Sun marks  a bold departure for the NY-based band, who pause the beloved The Amory Wars, a seven-album science fiction saga that also bore a comic book empire, in favor of a more personal outing. “It’s very much a time capsule of my last two years,” Claudio Sanchez said in a Mic.com interview. “I created The Amory Wars in 1998 because at the time, I didn’t understand what a frontman or a singer entailed. And I was sort of afraid to share my stories, and I didn’t want my stories to be judged. So I created fictitious ones to essentially hide behind.”
Rolling Stone declared The Color Before The Sun “a dramatic departure,” Noisey said the new album proves “there are no boundaries for a Coheed and Cambria album” and Alternative Press, in a four-star review, added “the album pops and pulsates with signature Coheed wails and riffs.” The Nerdist, who premiered the band’s ode to the ‘80s video for “You Got Spirit, Kid” (https://youtu.be/8eklHJeB6mc), said the new music “features much of what has made Coheed and Cambria a force for the last two decades.”
The Color Before The Sun is available now via 300 Entertainment and can be purchased on  iTunes (http://flyt.it/TheColorBeforeTheSun), Amazon (http://flyt.it/CBTSamz) and GooglePlay (http://flyt.it/CBTSplay).  A limited edition, deluxe box set featuring two hardcover books, four different pieces of music housed in a die-cut slipcase and a bevy of exclusive content is available viawww.coheedandcambria.com.
