KATATONIA Announce Remix Album And Co-Headlining Tour With CULT OF LUNA
Katatonia are killing it in 2013! Between a remix album titled Dethroned and Uncrowned and a tour with sick tour with Cult Of Luna, Intronaut and Tesseract, how can you not be pumped?
Let's take a look at Dethroned and Uncrowned first! According to guitarist Anders Nyström:
The synopsis is simple and album title won’t lie; the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! Instead, we’ll place the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album.
What Nyström really meant to say was "this is going to be the single greatest remix album of all time and there's not a whole lot you can say to dispute that," which I agree with! You can pre-order the record right here along with some cool merchandise as well, which will be out September 10. Nyström also points out that since the record was crowdfunded and did so well, there is the possibility of taking the stripped down material out on the road in 2013! That would be a concert worth going to at any price.
Next up, we've got Katatonia co-headlining their "Dethroned and Vertikal" tour with Cult Of Luna and supported by Intronaut and Tesseract! What a line-up; pretty much any progressive music fans dream come true for this year, right? Here's the dates:
