At the end of its upcoming North American tour, Sweden's KATATONIA will head to Mexico for the first time ever to play two exclusive gigs in Mexico City and Monterrey. "We can't wait to meet all our Mexican friends coming out for these special occasions," the band writes on its web site. "It's been a long time coming."
KATATONIA's Mexican dates:
Sep. 28 - Circo Volador - Mexico City, Mexico
Sep. 29 - Café Iguana - Monterrey, Mexico
Mestrock.se has uploaded photos of KATATONIA's July 6, 2007 concert at the Roskilde Festival in Roskilde, Denmark. Check them out at this location.
KATATONIA will team up with support acts SCAR SYMMETRY, INSOMNIUM and SWALLOW THE SUN for a North American tour this summer. Kicking of September 4, the trek will make nineteen stops around the country before concluding on September 26 in Houston.
KATATONIA's live performance from last year's Summer Breeze open-air festival in Germany was released as a double-disc live album/DVD, entitled "Live Consternation", on May 28. The "super jewelcase" packaging features both the audio on CD and the show on DVD (including both 2.0 and 5.1 versions). The artwork was once again designed by Travis Smith and closes the visual concept for "The Great Cold Distance" phase.
KATATONIA's video for the song "July", shot and directed by Charlie Granberg, has been posted online at YouTube.com.
