North American tour confirmed!

Our first North American tour with Katatonia, Scar Symmetry and Insomnium is confirmed and will commence on September 4th. The tour will make nineteen stops around the continent!
The tour, beginning in Springfield, Virginia will be Katatonia’s second
visit to the US in a year, the band making their stateside touring debut
last fall performing alongside Moonspell and North Carolina-based Daylight
Dies (Candlelight). Touring in support of their first live album, Live
Consternation, it will be the first time long-time American fans will be
able to experience a full set from the highly acclaimed band. Live
Consternation, set for American release June 5, is a stunning 5.01 cd/2.0
dvd package features selections from the band’s successful 2006 album The
Great Cold Distance and choice cuts from their growing and popular
catalog. Kerrang notes, “submlime melodies and moments of sheer mellow
bliss,” while Rocksound adds, “absolutely astonishing.”

On-going acclaim for Scar Symmetry’s 2006 virtuosic album, Pitch Black
Progress, has yielded a second tour of North America for the melodic death
metallers from Sweden. Hailed as “masters of melody, complexity, and
aggression” by Kerrang! Magazine and praised by Metal Hammer for their
“sickeningly good riffery,” the band made their debuts in the U.S. and
Canada a mere two months ago on the “Metal For The Masses” tour and have
scanned close to eight thousand units of their sophomore release.

Insomnium will make their stateside debut performing selections from their
current/third album Above the Weeping World. “This is by far the best
Insomnium album”, says vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevanen. “It is the first
time we feel we really succeeded in the studio. As a band we are very
happy with the end result.” Formed in 1997, Insomnium recorded two demos
before signing with Candlelight Records. Kerrang says, “Insomnium have
grown into something truly remarkable.”

Hope is the third album from rising Finnish doom/death band Swallow the
Sun. Featuring a guest appearance by Katatonia vocalist Jonas Renske the
album charted in the band’s home country of Finland upon its release. The
tour will be the band’s first of America and comes as the band’s profile
is rising internationally. Digital Metal says, “Swallow the Sun have to be
considered on of the genre’s top newcomers… highly, highly recommended.”
