The tour, entitled NEVERENDER GAIBSIV, will take the band across North America commencing on April 11 and ending May 20. Good Apollo, the epic 72-minute recording considered by most as the band’s most progressive album, and including two of the band’s most known singles (“Welcome Home” and “The Suffering”) and selling over a million records worldwide.
They will be headlining at First Avenue on 5/13 – the show is sold out but check Firs Ave’s socials for last minute tickets.
The band’s legion of fans grows every year, and the NEVERENDER concept now holds a special place within the culture of the Coheed community. NEVERENDER is the moniker given to these album performances by the band and it first started in 2008, when Coheed performed their first 4 albums over 4 nights – completing the feat in 4 different cities – New York, London, Chicago and Los Angeles. The band’s concept albums lend themselves particularly well to the live setting.
Simultaneously, singer Claudio Sanchez announced on CBR.com (Comic Book Resources) his plans to release a 12-issue comic book for Good Apollo as part of his The Amory Wars series which comes this spring from Boom! Studios. The story, which loosely follows the lyrics of the album, centers around protagonist Claudio Kilgannon and the shocking discovery that he is The Crowing, an entity prophesied about in the holy book who must dole out God’s judgment to destroy the universe.
