New York-born prog rockers Coheed and Cambria have announced that they will be embarking on a thirteen-date tour of Europe and the United Kingdom alongside post-hardcore legends Thrice, with whom they will co-headline. Supporting them as the opening band on the tour will be the ever-excellent post-hardcore outfit Touché Amoré. You can find tickets here, and the UK dates can be viewed at the end of the article.
The tour will commence in the UK, with a date at Bristol’s O2 Academy on Friday 14th of October, and will conclude on Sunday the 30th of October at Carlswerk in Cologne, Germany.
The tour is in support of Coheed and Cambria’s forthcoming album Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind, which will be released via Roadrunner Records on June 24th. Presently, the group has released four singles from the album thus far; “Shoulders”, “Rise, Naianasha (Cut The Cord)”, “The Liars Club” and “Comatose”. You can check out “Shoulders” below, and the album can be found on all streaming services.
Co-headliner Thrice put out their eleventh full-length studio album Horizons/East last September through Epitaph Records. You can check out the single “Scavengers” alongside a music video down below. Despite their album output now reaching double figures, Horizons/East was received warmly, with Kerrang! saying; “For Thrice fans, Horizons/East is another strident step forward from one of post-hardcore’s definitive outfits. For listeners at one of life’s soul-stretching crossroads, though, it could serve as so much more…”
The band is also set to appear on the exciting lineup for this year’s 2000trees Festival in Cheltenham. You can read more about this here.
Opening band Touché Amoré are also more than deserving of your love if you’re not familiar with them quite yet. Hailing from Los Angeles, California, the group have been playing emotionally charged, heart-wrenching post-hardcore for well over a decade now, with their last two albums Stage Four and Lament being clear evidence of the fact that they don’t intend to slow down anytime soon. Lament was released just last year, and is a powerful, heart-breaking document of a man reflecting on the grief of losing his mother. You can listen to the album on all streaming services.
