Coheed Cambria

Coheed and Cambria will embark on an extensive North American fall headline tour beginning Monday, October 29 in Toronto and winding up at Philadelphia's Electric Factory on Wednesday, November 28 (see full itinerary following). Support acts on the tour include rock veteran's Clutch and The Fall of Troy.

The Coheed and Cambria tour is in celebration of the release of the band's new Columbia Records album, "No World For Tomorrow," on Tuesday, October 23.

Coheed and Cambria (Claudio Sanchez - vocals, guitar; Travis Stever - guitar; Michael Todd - bass; Chris Pennie - drums) will offer fans a prelude to the band's headline tour with a special benefit concert raising funds to combat Alzheimer's disease. Organized by New York City Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, the concert to help end Alzheimer's will take place at Manhattan's High Line Ballroom, during the Coheed and Cambria and the CMJ Music Festival, on Friday, October 19.

"No World For Tomorrow," is dedicated to the memory of Antonia Cristiano, Claudio Sanchez' aunt, whose life was claimed last year by Alzheimer's. Cristiano -- a psychologist who played an essential role in the band's early career, counseled the group during deep growing pains and kept Coheed and Cambria from breaking up in 2002 -- was the inspiration "Justice in Murder," a key song on the new record.

"No World For Tomorrow" marks the apex and final chapter of "The Amory Wars," the conceptual, apocalyptic storyline which runs through the band's previous albums -- "The Second Stage Turbine Blade" (2002), "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3" (2003), and "Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness" (2005) - and chronicles the the trials and tribulations of main characters Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon and their children as they fight to save civilization.
