Coheed and Cambria Join Heaven & Hell Tour

(Sony) Coheed And Cambria will join Heaven & Hell on the road as Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Vinny Appice select them for Summer Tour. Here is a blurb their label sent over along with the dates:

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 more than ever. 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 it's hard to find a current band that can stretch those kinds of boundaries.

There is another reason for Coheed supporting H&H. Black Sabbath (Dio version) was 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.
