KATATONIA TO JOIN OPETH FOR FALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR; “Heritage Tour” to kick off in late September

Spread the metal:

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Swedish progressive metal titan Katatonia has announced its return to North American shores this fall. Katatonia will join fellow countrymen Opeth on a six week run, dubbed the “Heritage Tour”, which will conquer over 30 cities across the US and Canada beginning in September.

Guitarist Anders Nyström issued the following statement in anticipation of this monumental combination of Swedish metal heavyweights:

“Both you and we know that North America damn well deserves to see more of Katatonia, right? So how could we possibly resist heading back to the states this fall when Opeth are giving us the opportunity to be their special guests? It was just a matter of time before it had to happen again. Yes we toured together in the same formation ten years ago in Europ,e and not only was that tour very well received by both bands’ fans, but we also shared a great ride together as long time friends. Some people have even been calling this bill their ‘dream line-up’, so it’s only fair that the loyal fans in North America now get their piece of the cake too! So come out and see us on this great tour and remember we’re playing headlining sideshows as well! Looking forward! Cheers!”


Katatonia last toured North America in the fall of 2010, a headlining run on the “Night Over North America” tour, in support of its 2009 release Night Is The New Day.

The band recently celebrated its 20th anniversary as a leading light in progressive heavy metal.
