Coheed And Cambria Join Heaven & Hell On The Road

(2008) Coheed and Cambria, the progressive rock outfit who are recording their fifth album, are also spreading their wings by playing to new audiences in 2009 creating more visibility in the metal world, as well as the jam and indie circles more than ever.

The band is also getting ready to set out on a 14-date tour with Heaven & Hell (the Ronnie James Dio version of Black Sabbath) in August.

Earlier this year, Coheed and Cambria supported the heavy metal juggernaut, Slipknot, and now mix that with varied festivals such as Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits. It's hard to find a current band that can stretch those kinds of boundaries.

There is another reason for Coheed supporting Heaven & Hell. Black Sabbath was lead singer/guitarist Claudio Sanchez and lead guitarist Travis Stever's favorite group growing up, and the band was also Claudio's very first concert - at NY's Beacon Theater in October of 1992. "The night would prove to be one of the most influential of my life. I got the overwhelming feeling that the whole stage was alive-- the lights seemed to be as controlled by the sounds as everyone there, and I would exit the venue that night with a fire lit under me."

Seventeen years later, the band will get to share the stage with one of their biggest influences.
