Juicy Tour Rumor: Katatonia, Cult of Luna, Intronaut & TesseracT
UPDATE, 1:54pm EDT: Dates have now been announced via The PRP. Posted below.
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.
