Tour de Force



katatonia north america 2010 tourThe last time I saw Katatonia was a truly unforgettable night, a Scandinavian metal boner-fest to be sure: they played New York City along with Swallow the Sun, Insomnium and Scar Symmetry. I also picked up my beloved Insomnium t-shirt, which I still get questions about (“When did Insomnium come to the U.S.?”). Truth is that I really wasn’t familiar with most of Katatonia’s music at that time so I couldn’t fully appreciate their set, but now that I’ve been versed in the epic ways of these mighty Swedes I’m very glad that I’ll get another chance this Fall when they return to the U.S. on the MetalSucks-sponsored “New Night Over North America” 2010 Tour. Swallow the Sun are tagging along in support once again (maybe I’ll get to bro down with their super awesome keyboard player!) along with Israeli prog metallers Orphaned Land, so this promises to be another night to remember.

In case you missed the dates when they were announced a couple of weeks ago, we’ve reposted them for your convenience after the jump. Check out Katatonia’s new EP The Longest Year, featuring one new song and a couple of Night is the New Day remixes, out now on Peaceville.
