Opeth Announce North American Tour with Katatonia

Opeth Announce North American Tour with Katatonia
Swedish metal vets Opeth made their way through Canada last year with Mastodon, but the band have announced they'll be pairing up with fellow Scandinavian bangers Katatonia when they head back our way this spring.

The two acts head overseas to North America in April and will make their way to a handful of Canadian cities as they travel the continent. While the bulk of the trip takes place beneath the U.S./Canada border, gigs have been lined up in Quebec City, Halifax, Moncton, and Guelph. You can see the details down below.

If interested, you can nab yourself a V.I.P. ticket package that will yield a meet-and-greet with Opeth, a limited double-LP pressing of their 2011 album Heritage on clear vinyl, a shirt and more. Ticket pre-sales for fan club members start up tomorrow (January 10).

As for Katatonia, they'll be supporting their 2012 set Dead End Kings, which we described as an "exploration in aching desire and loss."
