Coheed and CambriaOpen For Heaven And Hell

Band Joins Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Vinny Appice for Summer Tour

Coheed and Cambria
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. 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.

There is another reason for Coheed supporting Heaven and Hell. Black Sabbath (Dio version) was Coheed's Claudio and Travis' favorite group growing up, and Claudio'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. 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 shares the stage with their mentors.
