Katatonia - Co-Headlining N. American Tour With Cult Of Luna

Katatonia loves touring in North America or so it seems because after recent tours with Opeth, they will team up for the co-headlining Uncrowned & Vertikal North American tour with Cult Of Luna plus special guests Intronaut and Tesseract. The two-week run will commence on September 23rd in Boston and end on October 7th in San Francisco. Cult Of Luna, Intronaut and Tesseract all released new albums this year.

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 (US) and Tesseract (UK)! Since we have been touring your continent quite a bit the last few years, we thought it was about time to re-decorate the good ol' setlist 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) on September 10th in North America. The album was funded by a successful PledgeMusic campaign that helped make the recording possible. Fans can still get exclusive Katatonia PledgeMusic items up until the project is released as it potentially encourages the possibility of having the project taken out live on the road in 2014.

I definitely want to make it to this! I'm principally going for Katatonia, but I would be interested in seeing the other bands as well (unless Cult of Luna is headlining, cause I'll be leaving after I see Katatonia, so hopefully they play before them).
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree (Martin Luther).

Great set, Katatonia is unnecessary here.
