KATATONIA – First Australian Tour Announced


After ten studio albums and following their 2013 tour supporting Opeth, KATATONIA have announced their first-ever headline tour of Australia.

Dates include:

7 – Brisbane – The Triffid
8 – Sydney – Manning Bar
9 – Adelaide – The Gov
10 – Melbourne – Corner Hotel
11 – Perth – Capitol

Katatonia are touring in support of their new album, The Fall Of Hearts, out now via Peaceville Records. The official follow-up to 2012’s Dead End Kings was recorded at Stockholm’s Studio Gröndahl & Tri-lamb Studio, and was self-produced by Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse. Mixing and mastering duties were carried out by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Ihsahn, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios, with Karl Daniel Lidén (Switchblade, The Ocean, Greenleaf) brought in as engineer.

The dramatic yet desolate artwork was created by long time Katatonia designer and illustrator Travis Smith.

Katatonia comment on The Fall Of Hearts: “This album is probably everything we unknowingly ever dreamed of to release. It’s a bleak but adventurous journey through our elements, we haven’t held back, we have pushed to get forward and backward in the ever spiralling night of our musical legacy.”
