SWEDEN - Sweden's ultimate dark rock/metal band, Katatonia, has announced several headlining North American tour-dates in addition to the group's supporting run with Opeth this spring. Katatonia headliners are confirmed for Montreal, Canada on April 25, Farmington, N.M. on May 22 and Los Angeles on May 27.

Katatonia recently announced an extensive North American tour with headliner and fellow Swedish elite, Opeth. The upcoming run, "North American Heritage Tour 2013," will conquer over 30 cities this spring beginning April 18 in Buffalo, N.Y.

Commented guitarist, Anders Nyström, "Back in the U.S.A...That's right Springsteen! We're looking at round number two as special guests to our brothers in Opeth on their last North American leg of the Heritage World Tour. This time we'll mainly cover off-territories, so regardless if you caught or missed us last time, consider this a second chance to attend the dead ends of North America with one of the best bills there'll ever be!"

The tour will make two special stops, the first in Worcester, Mass. on April 20 where the band returns to play the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, then in Clifton Park, N.Y. on April 28 where acclaimed Porcupine Tree front-man Steven Wilson will join for the night.
