Word on the street, via The PRP, is that two of the biggest bands in prog at the moment are gearing up for a tour in 2013. Coheed and Cambria and Between the Buried and Me, who both coincidentally (?) released concept albums that charted on the Billboard Top 200 on the same day, are rumored to be touring early next year, and they’re taking Russian Circles in tow. Immediate nerd joy reigned over the internet. And it was good.

Only one date is known right now (Feb. 15th at Salt Air in Magna, UT), but even still, the news is beyond exciting. Regardless of how many hours I’ll have to travel to attend the closest date, I’m hitting it up with the quickness. We’ll pass along word if and when this thing becomes official. Fingers crossed!
