AUSTIN, TX (February 20, 2018) – Celebrated American rock bands Coheed and CambriaandTaking Back Sunday today announced their upcoming summer co-headlining amphitheater tour.
It’s been over two years since Coheed and Cambria’s 2015 album, The Color Before the Sun, was released as the band’s first “non-concept” album over the span of their 15-year career. The album left the sci-fi universe of “The Amory Wars” and instead focused on frontman Claudio Sanchez’s personal life, including the birth of his first child. With 2018 upon us, and a major summer tour now announced, the volume of fans’ chatter for a new album and whether or not it will return to the band’s fictional concept arc will surely reach new heights.
Produced by Mike Sapone, TIDAL WAVE, the seventh full-length studio album from Taking Back Sunday released in the fall of 2016 finds the New York rock band both pushing its creative limits in an attempt to reach new fans as well as reconnect with those who have remained since the its inception. Deemed “eclectic and sensitive” by Entertainment Weekly, TIDAL WAVE presents itself as yet another rewarding reinvention for the band. “By the time most bands get to this point in their career they are pretty set in what they do but we were really mindful about approaching our musical ideas differently this time around and staying true to where the five of us are in our lives right now,” frontman Adam Lazzara explains. “This album is truly an expression of what Taking Back Sunday is during this snapshot in time as opposed to what we think people expect from our band.”
Taking Back Sunday are excited to spend the summer of 2018 touring with their longtime friends in Coheed and Cambria. “It’s funny, we’ve been friends all of this time but we’ve never done a full tour together,” comments drummer Mark O’Connell. “We ran into each other at some festivals last year and got to talking about it and here we are,” he continues.
Coheed and Cambria and Taking Back Sunday will be making the following co-headlining appearances across the U.S. this July and August, with The Story So Far as support.
