Coheed And Cambria To Join Heaven & Hell On The Road

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. Earlier this year, the band 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. Now the band has announced that they'll be supporting Heaven & Hell, featuring current Black Sabbath members Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler along with former members Ronnie James Dio and Vinny Appice.

Besides branching out, there is another reason for Coheed supporting Heavan & Hell. Black Sabbath (Dio version) was Claudio Sanchez and Travis Stever’s favorite group growing up, and Sanchez’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,” says Sanchez. “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 are set to share the stage with their mentors.
