'Unplugged & Reworked' European Tour 2014 announced

In September 2013 Katatonia returned with Dethroned & Uncrowned released through Pledge Music and in partnership with Kscope, Peaceville’s sister label.

Dethroned & Uncrowned, a reworking of 2012’s Dead End Kings, allowed the band to explore a more progressive sound, creating new moods and textures while still staying truthful to the core of the songs.

In May 2014 Katatonia will take their ‘Unplugged & Reworked’ set-up on the road for the first time, presenting an intimate evening with the band each night performing tracks from Dethroned & Uncrowned alongside atmospheric classics from their entire career, stripped and reworked.

Viva Emptiness 10th anniversary edition. UK tour dates announced

Fresh from their appearance at Download Festival, Katatonia, the Swedish purveyors of dark rock/metal, have been revealed as very special guests on Paradise Lost’s ‘Tragic Illusion’ 25th anniversary tour in October alongside Lacuna Coil.

Concurrently also celebrating their own 10th anniversary for their masterful sixth album ‘Viva Emptiness’, the band will be performing the album in its entirety each night to make these shows even more special.

Originally released in 2003 it is regarded by many, including the band themselves, as being among Katatonia's finest albums. ‘Viva Emptiness’ cemented the band's reputation as a major force, combining refined metal with doom and gloom angst-laden rock. A classic of the genre.

To coincide with the shows and the album’s 10-year anniversary ‘Viva Emptiness’ will be entirely re-mixed and re-mastered by David Castillo plus enhanced with new artwork courtesy of Travis Smith for a re-release on 4th November via Peaceville.
