Modern progressive rock band COHEED AND CAMBRIA will return to the road for the 40-plus-date "Neverender NWFT" tour in 2020. Continuing the popular "Neverender" tour series, the group will perform its 2007 fourth studio album, "Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume II: No World For Tomorrow", in its entirety. Additionally, fans can expect performances of COHEED AND CAMBRIA classics as well other essential material from the band's expansive catalogue.
The first leg of the "Neverender NWFT" tour launches May 5 in Austin, Texas at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, visits major markets in the Midwest and West Coast, and concludes May 31 at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, Nevada. Meanwhile, the second leg canvases the East Coast, South, and Mid-Atlantic, kicking off August 30 at The Royal Oak Theater in Royal Oak, Michigan. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 7 at 10 a.m. local time, with a special fan pre-sale beginning Wednesday, February 5, also at 10 a.m. Instrumental powerhouse CHON serves as direct support on most dates.
Thirteen years ago, "No World for Tomorrow" closed out the band's original sci-fi narrative, "The Amory Wars", in epic fashion. Upon release, it bowed at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 as the band's second consecutive Top 10 debut on the respective chart. Meanwhile, album single "Running Free" soared to the Top 20 on the Alternative Rock Chart, while "Feathers" and "Mother Superior" stand out as fan favorites. FOO FIGHTERS drummer Taylor Hawkins notably recorded drums for the album.
In 2008, COHEED AND CAMBRIA hosted the original "Neverender" as a historic four-night stand in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and London which saw them play their first four albums in full, one per evening. This gave birth to the "Neverender" tour. Since then, the band has brought these records to life in intimate venues and delivered an immersive audio-visual experience befitting of each respective narrative. "Neverender: NWFT" marks the fourth and potentially final "Neverender" tour, giving gravity to the proceedings.
Frontman Claudio Sanchez elaborated on the tour, stating: "'Neverender' is a special chance for us to celebrate the milestones that have made us COHEED AND CAMBRIA. And while the title of this chapter may suggest the end, I would like to think this and past 'Neverender's will help inform how we approach this ritual in the future."
In other COHEED AND CAMBRIA news, the "No World for Tomorrow" comic series is slated to arrive in late 2020 via Boom! Studios.
COHEED AND CAMBRIA is comprised of Claudio Sanchez (vocals / guitar), Travis Stever (guitar), Josh Eppard (drums) and Zach Cooper (bass).
