Description

KSCOPE TO RE-RELEASE KATATONIA'S LABEL DEBUT AS A 2 DISC SET (CD/DVD-AV WITH 5.1 MIX) NOW AT MID-PRICE. Originally released on the Peaceville label in August 2012, Katatonia's home for the past 16 years, 'Dead End Kings' was the band's most successful album to date and cemented Katatonia's position as masters of a unique kind of hard-edged atmospheric Rock. In September of 2013 Kscope released 'Dethroned & Uncrowned', a radical reinterpretation of 'Dead End Kings' and the band's first release on Kscope. 'Dethroned & Uncrowned' allowed Katatonia the opportunity to explore a more ambient and progressive sound, creating new moods and textures while still staying truthful to the core of the original songs. "The synopsis is simple and album title won't lie; the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! We'll place the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album." - Anders Nystrom (Katatonia). Kscope are set to re-release 'Dethroned & Uncrowned' as a 2 disc CD / DVD-AV (5.1 mix) presented in a mediabook with a 32 page colour booklet. In spring 2014 Katatonia took 'Dethroned & Uncrowned' on the road in Europe for the first time as 'Unplugged & Reworked'. The band presented an intimate acoustic evening performing tracks from the album alongside atmospheric classics from their entire career, stripped and reworked. Each venue on the tour was carefully chosen for its unique atmosphere. The concert from the stunning candle-lit setting of London's Union Chapel, where they were joined on guitar & vocals by The Pineapple Thief frontman and songwriter Bruce Soord, was filmed and released as a concert film under the moniker of 'Sanctitude' by Kscope.
