Katatonia Surpassed Their Career Expectations, Tour North America
"This isn't what I expected when we started 10, 15 years ago," frontman Jonas Renkse said to the crowd about the sold out New York City show. The Joy Division-influenced band played Gramercy Theater on Sept. 10 with Gwynbleidd, Orphaned Land and Swallow the Sun. The band's North American tour continues through early October.
"I want to thank you all for coming out tonight. It was the most awesome," Renkse said as Katatonia played their encore songs.
Be sure to check out 'The Longest Year' -- which is the band's latest release out on Peaceville Records. It is an EP with remixed versions of 'Night is the New Day' songs and 'Sold Heart,' a previously unreleased song.
