Aptly titled, The Unheavenly Skye Tour pulls its title partially from the title Coheed's latest album, The Unheavenly Creatures, released just last year. The band is expected to pull heavily from its tracklist for this run of shows.
The other part of the tour name references Mastodon's fourth album, Crack The Skye, which celebrates its 10th anniversary on March 24. To celebrate, the band will perform the album in its entirety on the tour. Neurosis' Scott Kelly, who appears on the album's title track as a guest vocalist, has been known to join the band on stage and recently performed six blistering songs with Mastodon, including "Crack The Skye," at a dive bar in London for Kerrang!
After four nominations, Mastodon earned their first GRAMMY win at the 60th GRAMMY Awards for Best Metal Performance for "Sultan's Curse."
Tickets for the tour are available via Ticketmaster.
