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.


Katatonia w/
Paradise Lost & Lacuna Coil
30th October – Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton
31st October – 02 ABC, Glasgow
1st November – The Ritz – Manchester
3rd November – Camden Roadhouse, London

Dødheimsgard

New deal struck with Peaceville Records

Peaceville Records are proud to announce the signing of Norway’s finest bunch of demonic delinquents, Dødheimsgard (DHG). One of the truly great boundary-pushers & visionaries of the mid-90’s Norwegian Black Metal evolution, & having released 4 full-length albums to date since their inception, DHG are widely hailed as masters of dark & psychotic psychedelia-tinged extremity.
 
The band was formed in 1994 by Vicotnik & Aldrahn. The early incarnation was that of a raw and melodic black metal band, with their debut album also featuring Fenriz of Darkthrone on bass, before the poisons of a more avantgarde & schizophrenic concoction started to take hold. And now, the first fruits of DHG’s recently re-animated labour will manifest in the shape of a new studio album, due October, plus headline European tour.
