It’s just been announced that Katatonia will co-headline the North American leg of the Uncrowned & Vertikal Tour with Cult of Luna and special guests Intronaut and TesseracT. The two-week run will get underway on September 23rd, in Boston, Massachusetts. VIP packages will be available next week, along with the public on-sales beginning Friday, August 9th.
Commented vocalist Jonas Renkse:
“Dear North Americans! We are happy to announce yet another co-headline tour in support of Dead End Kings, this time with fellow Swedes Cult of Luna plus support from Intronaut and TesseracT!
Since we have been touring your continent quite a bit the last few years, we thought it was about time to redecorate the good ol’ set list a little. Right now we are rehearsing and going through some of our hidden gems, songs that we haven’t yet picked up or rarely have played live before. It will probably be as exciting for you as it is for us!
Please note that it won’t be an ‘old-school’ party, but an evening with atmosphere so thick you could cut it with a knife! Oh, and we will probably have time to play some of the ‘hits’ as well. All in all, we will squeeze out as much Katatonia as possible each and every night, so let’s do this one together once again, shall we?”
The upcoming North American tour will coincide with the release of Dethroned and Uncrowned, the band’s debut album on Kscope (sister label of Peaceville), home to Anathema, Amplifier, Steven Wilson, and, most recently, Wisdom of Crowds, the new project from Bruce Soord of The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia’s very own Jonas Renkse.
Dethroned and Uncrowned will be released September 10th in North America to celebrate Kscope’s fifth anniversary. It can be pre-ordered now at: www.burningshed.com.
