Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive, and Torche will be playing a show at the Rumsey Playfield at Central Park (aka Summerstage) on May 26, 2010. No word yet on whether it will be a free show, rental, or a ticketed benefit, but I’ll let you know when I find out (I’m assuming it will be a benefit). In other C&C news, the band is releasing a new CD, Book and DVD entitled The Year of Black Rainbow, on April 13, 2010. In addition to the just announced Summerstage date, they’ll also be playing a much smaller album pre-release show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 31 (that one is sold out already though).

More Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive and Torche tour dates after the jump.

Coheed and Cambria has confirmed April 13 as the release date of Year of the Black Rainbow, its heavily anticipated fifth studio album. The eagerly awaited prequel to “The Amory Wars” tetralogy, Year of the Black Rainbow will be released by Columbia in both a standard format and a deluxe edition including a 352-page Year of the Black Rainbow novel, penned by the band’s Claudio Sanchez and New York Times Bestselling author Peter David.

Year of the Black Rainbow provides the long awaited prequel to the band’s four previous inter-related concept albums – The Second Stage Turbine Blade (2002); In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 (2003); Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005) and Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow (2007) – which comprise “The Amory Wars,” the conceptual narrative driving the band’s lyrics, penned by Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez. Year Of The Black Rainbow is also likely to be the final installment of the narrative of “The Amory Wars.”
