Sweden's KATATONIA has announced several special 20th anniversary North American shows in celebration of two decades of gloom and doom from the world-renowned progressive metal titans.

The headlining Last Fair Day Gone Night 2011 performances will take place in the United States and Canada while the band is in North America for the upcoming Heritage Tour, with fellow Swedish heavyweights OPETH. Full dates for Last Fair Day Gone Night 2011 and the Heritage Tour can be seen below.

Guitarist Anders Nyström issued the following statement in anticipation of the Heritage Tour: "Both you and we know that North America damn well deserves to see more of Katatonia, right? So how could we possibly resist heading back to the States this fall when Opeth are giving us the opportunity to be their special guests? It was just a matter of time before it had to happen again. Yes we toured together in the same formation ten years ago in Europe, and not only was that tour very well received by both bands’ fans, but we also shared a great ride together as long time friends. Some people have even been calling this bill their ‘dream line-up’, so it's only fair that the loyal fans in North America now get their piece of the cake too! So come out and see us on this great tour and remember we're playing headlining sideshows as well! Looking forward! Cheers!"

Katatonia last toured North America in the fall of 2010, a headlining run on the Night Over North America tour, in support of its 2009 release, Night Is The New Day.
