Coheed and Cambria Will Make Sci-Fi Come Alive With Summer Tour

Concept albums have had a long and storied history in the world of rock and roll. The idea of a record featuring songs expressing a particular idea or theme may go back as far as the 1940’s and Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads, though the idea really hit its heyday in the seventies with the advent of progressive rock and rock operas. Albums like Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and The Who’s Tommy are prime examples of the concept album era. In today’s fast paced world of tweets and news blurbs, the concept album has become a rarity as artists more and more opt for singles over albums. There is one band, however, that dares to boldly traverse the concept path – the master of the modern concept album, Coheed and Cambria.

From their very first release, the prog rockers have taken on the science fiction story of the Amory Wars as a basis for all but one of their records, the 2015 release The Color Before The Sun. Frontman Claudio Sanchez has taken the story to another level with their upcoming studio album The Unheavenly Creatures and has even released the stories through a series of graphic novels along with his wife Chondra Echert. The band will hit the road this summer beginning in July for their Summer Tour 2018 along with Taking Back Sunday and The Story So Far. The tour promises to be spectacular as Coheed and Cambria bring the Amory Wars to life for audiences across the country. With Sanchez’s poignant vocal stylings and technical mastery on the guitar, this is a tour you won’t want to miss. Coheed and Cambria will be making a stop in Charlotte at the Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre on July 14th and will play the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia on July 18th.
