Coheed fans of the UK, lend me your ears! I bring terrific news with me today, for the beloved modern prog rock band will be coming to tour your parts in October. Not only that, but the six dates they just announced will be the first in support of their upcoming record Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures, which is scheduled to drop on October 5 via Roadrunner Records (more info on that after the jump). Exciting times! The tour will be supported by Californian instrumental math rock group Chon, which makes for a nice touring package if you ask me.
Tickets will be available for pre-sale tomorrow at 10am, while general on-sale will start on Friday at the same time. You can peep all the newly announced UK dates below.

Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures
We have previously reported about “The Dark Sentencer”, the new single Coheed and Cambria released a while ago. Well, now we have even more information about the band’s return to The Amory Wars storyline for you! Aside from the album title (see the subheading above), we know that it’s going to be a 15-song, 78-minute epic of a record, touching on the aftermath of the events depicted in Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV Volume 2: No World For Tomorrow. Color me excited!

Deluxe sets are already available here; standard pre-orders will become available on June 29. I can only speak for myself here, but I sure am looking forward to October 5. Coheed and Cambria are my favorite band ever, so my hopes for Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures are pretty high! Are you excited for the record as well? Let us know in the comments!
