May 5, 2013, a year ago
SkullsNBones.com recently caught up with Katatonia guitarist Anders "Blakkheim" Nyström. Check out the video interview below:
Katatonia is currently in the midst of a massive North American tour, North American Heritage Tour 2013, with fellow countrymen, OPETH. The extensive run will conquer over 30 cities in the US and Canada this spring. A full list of confirmed dates, including several Katatonia headlining performances, can be seen below.
Said guitarist Anders Nyström, "Dear Katatoniaks of North America! You have been blessed to get another round of this truly classic bill together, because today Opeth and Katatonia, two bands who share a longtime friendship and many musical collaborations, are back on the road to cloak you with some true Swedish atmosphere across North America.
"Check out our Facebook for daily updates on stage times (as a general rule we're always on early after doors) and there you'll also find the ticket links. More and more shows are already added to the sold out list, so we look forward to many fine evenings to come. Let the sunset choir sing again and see ya soon!"
