With support from Between The Buried And Me and Russian Circles
MSG Entertainment and Live Nation are proud to welcome COHEED AND CAMBRIA to Radio City Music Hall on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 7PM.
Following COHEED AND CAMBRIA’s much acclaimed and stellar, Top 5 Billboard album debut of volume one of their double-album, The Afterman: Ascension on October 9, 2012, the band announces the release of volume two, The Afterman: Descension via Everything Evil/Hundred Handed Inc. on February 5th, 2013, the same week the band embarks on a national headlining tour. Supporting Coheed will be the progressive juggernaut BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and the artsy post-rock trio RUSSIAN CIRCLES.
“We haven’t properly toured on a new album in what will be nearly 3 years, so coming off the heels of these two albums means we’ll have a wide breadth of new material to choose from.” Sanchez said. “Playing Radio City Music Hall – and being from NY, it’s not something I ever thought I would be able to do. It’s quite an honor.”
In the story arc of The Afterman: Descension, we continue the conceptual storyline from volume one, where Sirius Amory, i.e., “The Afterman,” is a scientist/cosmonaut who goes on celestial mission and makes what is arguably the most important discovery ever known to mankind. But upon his return, he discovers his ambitiousness may have brought him fleeting fame, but also tragic repercussions.
