Fans of modern prog rock will be thrilled to hear that Nyack, New York rockers Coheed and Cambria will launch a massive tour of North America this spring and fall. Their “Neverender: No World For A Waking Mind” Tour will see the bank play the entire song list from their 2007 release No World For Tomorrow in full, along with select tracks from their newest album Vexis II: A Window of the Waking Mind.
The tour begins on April 28 at The NorVa in Norfolk, Virginia, before moving across the Eastern and Central parts of North America. This includes stops at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York, Agora Theater in Cleveland, and the House of Blues in Houston.
Coheed and Cambria then take a break – other than playing Hellfest in France in June – before returning in the fall to (eventually) hit the West Coast. Shows begin again on September 6 at The Fillmore Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina, hitting venues like The Mission Ballroom in Denver and The Vogue Theatre in Vancouver before their final tour date on October 7 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
A full list of dates can be found at the bottom of this post.
No World For Tomorrow – or Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World For Tomorrow, to give it its wordy title – is the fourth studio album Coheed and Cambria released. It is notable for being the only album from the band to feature the late Taylor Hawkins on drums, with the Foo Fighters’ legend filling in following the departure from the band of Josh Eppard (Eppard rejoined the band in time for their 2012 album The Aftermath: Ascension.)
Already a prog rock staple, Coheed and Cambria shot to mainstream fame when their song “Welcome Home” was included as a playable track on the smash hit video game Rock Band. Catch them on tour in 2023 for a show that will be one of the best of the year if previous tours are anything to go by.
