PROGRESIVE-rock band Coheed And Cambria have sold out a date in Norwich, it emerged today.

Supported by Fightstar - fronted by ex-Busted heartthrob by Charlie Simpson from Woodbridge - the popular four-strong group are set to pack the Large Common Room (LCR) venue at the UEA on Thursday .

Originally from New Jersey the band, who has just released their album No World For Tomorrow - will be joined by pop-punk heroes Madina Lake, Fightstar and Circa Survive.

In a recent magazine article the band's vocalist Claudio Sanchez said: “We are very excited. The UK has always been very good to us.

“We've come over a few times and, like in the States, the audience has kind of progressed and grown, so I have high hopes.

“I am looking forward to playing the new material too. We've been playing what we've got for so long now, and also with the new line-up it's nice to visit some of the older songs that we haven't played in a while, and those songs will appear new to us.
