In a brand new interview with Niclas Müller-Hansen of Sweden’s Metalshrine, guitarist/co-founder Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström of Swedish dark rockers KATATONIA was asked about the band’s touring plans following the release of their new album, “Dead End Kings”. “We’re actually going out with OPETH again,” he replied. “A new U.S. tour after the one with DEVIN TOWNSEND [PROJECT] and PARADISE LOST. We’re gonna play some other territories with OPETHso we’re out for another month in October. Then we have four days off and then there’s a two-month tour of Europe as part of a package. Some very melodic bands.”
This September, KATATONIA and DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT will team up for the “Epic Kings Idols Tour”, a co-headlining North American run featuring PARADISE LOST as direct support and STOLEN BABIES as openers (DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and KATATONIA will alternate in headlining each show). The trek will kick off on September 4 in Seattle, Washington and conclude on September 24 in Baltimore, Maryland.
