Coheed and Cambria will be supporting Linkin Park on all dates of their upcoming national tour. The tour goes from February 12 to March 10 and will be hitting 19 cities, including Madison Square Garden in New York. The dates come on the heels of Coheed’s successful sold-out 25-date national headlining tour that wrapped at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom on November 29, 2007.
Coheed and Cambria (Sanchez – vocals, guitar; Travis Stever – guitar; Mic Todd – bass) spent the first half of 2007 working on “No World for Tomorrow in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Stone Sour) and mixer Randy Staub (Metallica, Nickelback). Coheed recruited Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters to play drums on the record, while ex-Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Chris Pennie is now a permanent fixture in the band and has taken their live shows to new heights.
No World For Tomorrow has sold over 100,000 copies in four weeks, and the Linkin Park dates mark the first time the band has played in arenas.
