After releasing the album “Dethroned & Uncrowned” through PledgeCampaign on September 2013, Swedish metallers KATATONIA have recently annonced another tour, which will take place in several European cities in 2014. This tour will be quite special since it will be an ‘unplugged’ tour which will consist of songs from the band’s entire career.

Here is the band’s statement in their official website:

In September 2013 Katatonia returned with Dethroned and Uncrowned released through Pledge Music and in partnership with Kscope, Peaceville’s sister label.

Dethroned and Uncrowned, a reworking of 2012′s Dead End Kings, allowed the band to explore a more progressive sound, creating new moods and textures while still staying truthful to the core of the songs.

In May 2014 Katatonia will take their ‘Unplugged & Reworked’ set-up on the road for the first time, presenting an intimate evening with the band each night performing tracks from Dethroned and Uncrowned alongside atmospheric classics from their entire career, stripped and reworked.

Guitarist and founding member Anders Nyström comments:

“Many people who appreciated how we “dethroned” and “uncrowned” last year’s ‘Dead End Kings’ album have been hoping and even insisting the same would also be done to one or more of our older albums. Admittedly, not likely to happen many a moon ago, at least not with a studio album, we are excited to let you know that by bringing this show on the road the same possibility now opens up that door, with a live version. So expect to hear stripped and reworked songs from our entire career and have them come into equation by thriving on our atmospheric vision, the ambience of some highly unusual venues and last but not least with your presence and choir to set the mood for a soothing experience. We’re already certain this will be the most different and remarkable thing we’ve ever done!”
