UPDATE, 1:54pm EDT: Dates have now been announced via The PRP. Posted below.

Original Post:

These kinds of rumors from The PRP are always fun because they always end up being dead on. It also cracks me up when label/management/press types get freaked out about tour date leaks like this (we’ve been asked to pull down a few), since they only help to build hype and generate extra press. I mean, I get it, your big, planned announcement is blown, but come on… extra hype should always be welcomed. So here’s the latest: Katatonia, Cult of Luna, Intronaut and TesseracT are rumored to be putting together a U.S. tour for the fall. One date has seeped out so far:

10/06 Los Angeles, CA – El Rey Theatre

Pretty sweet lineup, yeah? I like that the bands all have a certain commonality (progressive metal, in the most general sense) but no two bands are too much alike. Cult of Luna and TesseracT haven’t been to the U.S. in a looong while, and I’m beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to see both. Katatonia and Intronaut both tour the U.S. a whole lot so their presence here isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, but both bands always kill it live and make any bill intrinsically better.

More dates as we get ’em.
