Progressive rock quintet Coheed and Cambria is a month away from launching its first headline tour of North America in more than two years. The crew will follow an initial eight-market run of the Northeast in March with a longer spring run in April and May.

The March venture kicks off March 23 at Harro East Ballroom in Rochester, NY, and concludes March 31 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. From there, Coheed and Cambria will head West for an April 17 performance at this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, CA.

After Coachella, it’ll be back to the East Coast for the launch of a 25-date spring tour that kicks off April 22 at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC, and concludes with a May 27-28 stand at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. Highlights of that outing include gigs on April 28 at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin, TX; May 11 at Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO; and May 17 at the House of Blues in Boston, MA.

Near the end of the spring jaunt, Coheed and Cambria will hook further north for a duo of dates in Canada. Those concerts are slated for May 18 at Metropolis in Montreal, QC, and May 19 at Sound Academy in Toronto, ON.

Ticket sales already started and sold out for many markets on Coheed and Cambria’s upcoming March tour. Public onsales open in most markets on February 20 for the new April and May concert dates, with ticket prices starting around $25.

Blues-rock trio Earl Greyhound will open for the upcoming March concerts, while experimental rock crew Circa Survive and metal group Torche are the scheduled supporting acts for the larger spring tour.

The progressive rock group will be on the road promoting its fifth studio album, “Year of the Black Rainbow,” which is scheduled for release on April 13. The new effort follows Coheed and Cambria’s tradition of concept albums, serving as a prequel for the band’s previous works. Its 2007 predecessor, “No World for Tomorrow,” earned the group its highest ever spot on the Billboard 200 with a No. 6 debut.
