Two of Sweden’s greatest musical exports, Opeth and Katatonia will be joining forces for a full N. American tour this Spring. The two bands will kick things off in Buffalo, NY on April 18th and wrap things up on May 26th in Santa Cruz, CA. Opeth will be touring in support of their 2011 album Heritage (review) while Katatonia will be supporting their 2012 release Dead End Kings (review), which made #2 on my Top 10 Albums of 2012 list.
Katatonia guitarist Anders Nyström comments, “Back in the U.S.A…That’s right Springsteen! We’re looking at round #2 as special guests to our brothers in Opeth on their last North American leg of the Heritage World Tour. This time we’ll mainly cover off-territories, so regardless if you caught or missed us last time, consider this a second chance to attend the dead ends of North America with one of the best bills there’ll ever be!”
