Progressive Rockers Coheed and Cambria have announced a North American tour. Support will come from The Dear Hunter.
The tour will run through and April and May and will see the band stopping at mid-sized venues across the country to play their third album, IV: From Fear through the Eyes of Madness, in its entirety. See the dates below.
Coheed and Cambria’s latest, The Color Before the Sun, was released in 2015. The band recently put out a digital reissue of that album with 20 demo tracks. The Color Before the Sun was Coheed and Cambria’s first non-conceptual album and paused The Amory Wars, a science fiction saga detailed in the band’s concept albums and accompanying comic book series. To coincide with the tour, the band has announced the return of the comic book series.
The Dear Hunter is an Indie Rock band out of Providence, RI. Formed out of the ashes of the Post-Hardcore band The Receiving End of Sirens, The Dear Hunter embraces progressive tendencies and a wide array of instrumentation. Their latest album, Act V: Hymns with the Devil in Confessional, was released in 2016 to rave reviews.
On the country side, singer Luke Bryan has announced the massive “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” tour for Summer 2017.
Bryan, who is still currently on the road, announced the tour’s line-up via a humorous video posted to his YouTube channel. In the video, Bryan can be seen “hunting” his rotating support acts on Nintendo’s Duck Hunt. Those acts include Lauren Alaina, Granger Smith, Seth Ennis, Craig Campbell and Adam Craig. Main support will come from Brett Elderedge, who will appear on the entire tour.
The tour kicks off May 5th in Nashville, TN and will conclude October 28th in San Bernardino, CA. Along the way, Bryan will make a handful of festival appearances.
Bryan’s latest studio album, Kill the Lights, was released in August 2015 via Capitol Nashville. He will make an appearance at Super Bowl LI to perform the national anthem.
