Katatonia & Solstafir will head out in January and February 2023 on a co-headline tour of the UK and Europe, which will include a stop at Trix, Antwerp on 18 February 2023.
The coming together of these two revered masters of melancholy seems only natural. For over a quarter of a century both artists have favoured the emotional connection that their music brings over all else. Theirs is a world where ‘heavy’ is a force of nature; where progress comes from within, outwardly changing their musical output into something almost unrecognisable from the extreme metal that carried it in the early days.
The BBC’s description of Katatonia’s « grandiose, majestic beauty » seems appropriate for both artists. It’s no coincidence that The Guardian’s take on Solstafir is equally apt: « total immersion is compulsory ».
