Swedish dark rockers KATATONIA will take part in an in-store signing session at SoundCheck Hollywood in West Hollywood, California on Monday, May 27 beginning at 6 p.m. The band will headline The Roxy Theatre later that night as the final date of its North American tour.
KATATONIA will return with a special triple-LP vinyl release featuring an epic set of classics from the band’s catalogue. “Last Fair Day Gone Night” features the Swedish dark rock/metal master at its glorious best with this electrifying set from London’s esteemed Koko venue during a series of special celebratory shows to mark the band’s 20th anniversary during 2011’s “Last Fair Day Gone Night” tour. Set for a June 17 release on Peaceville Records, “Last Fair Day Gone Night” is presented on triple heavyweight 180gm vinyl in a deluxe box, with a 12-page, 12-inch book.
Founding members Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse are joined by longtime drummer Daniel Liljekvist along with recent members — namely guitarist Per Eriksson, plus recently recruited bassist Niklas Sandin — for an exhilarating night fuelled by a rich and extensive set of KATATONIA tracks both past and present, including a special performance of the landmark 2001 album “Last Fair Deal Gone Down” in its entirety.
KATATONIA is currently in the midst of a massive North American tour, “North American Heritage Tour 2013”, with fellow Swedes OPETH. The extensive run will conquer over 30 cities in the U.S. and Canada this spring.
KATATONIA is touring in support of its ninth studio album, “Dead End Kings”, which sold 3,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 138 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 4 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
