Sweden’s progressive metal band (and one of my own personal favorite groups), Katatonia, has launched a teaser trailer for their forthcoming headlining US tour, the “Night Over North America” tour. The MetalSucks.net sponsored trek, which features Swallow The Sun and Orphaned Land in support, will kick off in Baltimore on September 8th.
Katatonia has been relentlessly touring across Europe in support of their 2009 full-length release, Night is the New Day, which sold over 2,000 copies in the US in its first week. The band also released an EP, ‘The Longest Year’, earlier this spring. The band’s latest music video for the EP’s title track can be viewed at: http://www.nightisthenewday.com/.
