As was announced yesterday, Sweden's ultimate dark rock/metal band Katatonia will be heading on an extensive North American tour with headliner and fellow Swedish elite Opeth. The upcoming run, "North American Heritage Tour 2013," will hit over 30 cities this spring beginning April 18 in Buffalo, N.Y.

Commented guitarist, Anders Nyström: "Back in the U.S.A...That's right Springsteen! We're looking at round #2 as special guests to our brothers in Opeth on their last North American leg of the Heritage World Tour. This time we'll mainly cover off-territories, so regardless if you caught or missed us last time, consider this a second chance to attend the dead ends of North America with one of the best bills there'll ever be!"

The tour will make two special stops, the first in Worcester, Mass. on April 20tg where the band returns to play the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, then in Clifton Park, N.Y. on April 28th where acclaimed Porcupine Tree front-man Steven Wilson will join for the night. A full list of confirmed dates can be seen below.

Katatonia last toured North America in September 2012 as part of the co-headlining "Epic Kings & Idols Tour" with The Devin Townsend Project. "Dead End Kings" Katatonia's ninth studio album (reviewed here), hit stores on August 28th, 2012 via Peaceville Records.
