Sweden's KATATONIA have announced a co-headlining North American tour, Uncrowned & Vertikal Tour, with CULT OF LUNA plus special guests INTRONAUT and TESSERACT. The two-week run will commence September 23rd in Boston, Mass. VIP packages will be available next week, along with the public on-sales beginning Friday, August 9th.
Commented vocalist Jonas Renkse, "Dear North Americans! We are happy to announce yet another co-headline tour in support of Dead End Kings, this time with fellow Swedes Cult Of Luna plus support from Intronaut and TesseracT! Since we have been touring your continent quite a bit the last few years, we thought it was about time to re-decorate the good ol' setlist a little. Right now we are rehearsing and going through some of our hidden gems, songs that we haven't yet picked up or rarely have played live before. It will probably be as exciting for you as it is for us! Please note that it won't be an 'old-school' party, but an evening with atmosphere so thick you could cut it with a knife! Oh, and we will probably have time to play some of the 'hits' as well. All in all, we will squeeze out as much Katatonia as possible each and every night, so let's do this one together once again, shall we?"

In August 2012, Katonia released Dead End Kings, their ninth studio album. The album was the band’s most successful to date and cemented the Swede’s position as masters of sorrowful metal. Dead End Kings was released on the Peaceville label, the band’s home for the past 14 years. On September 10th the band return with Dethroned And Uncrowned, their first release on Kscope, Peaceville’s sister label.
According to a press release, many of the ecstatic reviews the Dead End Kings received commented on the fact that the album marked another step in the band’s journey towards a more progressive sound. Dethroned and Uncrowned allows them to explore these elements of the record further as they have reworked the album, creating new moods and textures while still staying truthful to the core of the songs.
The album will be available on double LP, download and as 2 disc (CD & DVD-AV) digibook set, which also features a 5.1 surround mix of the album.
Dethroned And Uncrowned tracklisting:
'The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here'
