COHEED AND CAMBRIA add 2 UK dates to their NEVERENDER: NO WORLD FOR A WAKING MIND tour
COHEED AND CAMBRIA ANNOUNCE TWO UK HEADLINE SHOWS IN JUNE ON THEIR NEVERENDER: NO WORLD FOR A WAKING MIND WORLD TOUR
TOUR SEES THE BAND PERFORM THEIR SEMINAL ALBUM NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW IN FULL, PLUS A MIX OF SONGS FROM MOST RECENT ALBUM VAXIS II: A WINDOW OF THE WAKING MIND
Following on from announcing their spring North American trek, Coheed and Cambria have shared news today of two additional UK dates after their performance at Download festival in June.
Forming an extended leg of the band’s “Neverender: No World For A Waking Mind” Tour, the upcoming headline dates will see Coheed and Cambria performing their seminal album No World For Tomorrow in full, along with a strong mix of songs from their most recent album Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind, which The Guardian described as, “some of their most concise and infectious songwriting to date” (4*).
The band also recently shared an official music video for their single “Beautiful Losers,” which is streaming now on Coheed and Cambria’s official YouTube channel. Filmed while the band was on tour in Germany, the live performance clip illustrates the bond between the band and their fans around the world. The track itself depicts the plight of Vaxis II’s main characters Nea and Nostrand, two underdogs battling an evil empire and while the song’s title also serves as an allusion to Coheed and Cambria’s beginnings – frontman Claudio Sanchez and guitarist Travis Stever had briefly been in a band called Beautiful Loser, named after a Leonard Cohen novel. Watch the video by clicking below and see why The Guardian praised its chorus in particular, “that flies higher than a rocketship.”
This past summer Coheed and Cambria released their widely celebrated new album and the latest chapter of “The Amory Wars” saga with Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind. The 13-song collection landed at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Hard Rock Albums” chart marking the band’s fourth #1 on the tally. Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind is available on all streaming platforms along with a deeply immersive Deluxe Box Set available in Coheed and Cambria’s official store. Furthermore, the band will have tour exclusive vinyl variants of both No World For Tomorrow and Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind vinyl available at the upcoming shows.
Produced by the band’s own Claudio Sanchez and Zakk Cervini, Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind features the singles “A Disappearing Act,” “Comatose,” “Rise, Naianasha (Cut The Cord),” “The Liars Club,” and “Shoulders” which broke into the Top 10 on the Active Rock radio charts earlier this year. Named one of Consequence’s “Top 20 Metal & Hard Rock Albums of 2022 (So Far),” Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind has been garnering critical acclaim from around the globe. “It would be hard to find a rock band with as much of an ambitious, all-encompassing artistic scope as you find with Coheed and Cambria,” affirmed Juxtapoz while Kerrang! attested “Coheed and Cambria continue to boldly go where no band has gone before, and long may it continue.” Revolver noted “Vaxis II is kind of a perfect record for the pandemic age: an ambitious and truly epic song cycle that you can get thoroughly lost in,” and SPIN praised the collection for “flirting more overtly with dance beats, R&B, and symphonic music.”
