Progressive rock veterans and noted sci-fi enthusiasts Coheed and Cambria are hitting the high seas and taking friends and fans with them. Fresh off the release of last year’s acclaimed concept album Vaxis: The Unheavenly Creatures and heavy touring behind the record, the band has partnered with with Sixthman to create an immersive festival at sea on the S.S. Neverender. The ship is due to set sail on October 26th-30th, 2020, from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas. On board, Coheed will perform early songs and deep cuts that can rarely be heard, as well as bring their sci-fi concept, “The Amory Wars,” to life in several on-board installations. The group will also host fan Q&A sessions and other events. Additionally, Taking Back Sunday, the Dear Hunter, Polyphia, Culture Abuse, Torche and other like-minded bands will perform, with more artists and activities to be announced. Plus, Revolver magazine will host a special bar for all the seafarers’ drinking needs.
“We’re always trying to find ways to improve the fan experience,” Coheed guitarist Travis Stever commented. “Our fans like to travel, they like to meet other fans, we’re like a big family. So the idea of a cruise seemed like a way to allow a bunch of us to just go on vacation together.”
Fans are encouraged to join the cruise pre-sale for early access, and those who bought the band’s most recent box set will be given priority. Low deposits of $150 and flexible payment-plans that feature zero interest rates are available.
Coheed recently were forced to cancel their remaining 2019 dates to allow drummer Josh Eppard to deal with health issues that led him to faint onstage during an October show in Orlando, Florida. Fortunately, he’s doing well and the band looks to enjoy a very big 2020.
