"Released on the Peaceville label in August 2012, Katatonia's home for the past 14 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 2013, the band unexpectedly return with Dethroned And Uncrowned, a radical reinterpretation of Dead End Kings and the band's first release on Kscope, Peaceville's sister label.

Dethroned And Uncrowned finds Katatonia exploring the more ambient and Progressive elements of Dead End Kings, while remaining truthful to the core of the album's songs.

"The synopsis is simple and album title won’t lie; the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! Instead, 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. Also by pledging you are helping the bands ability to be able to tour further afield. Although the songs are the same and the track listing doesn’t change, we hope the end result is something entirely different! Think of the album like a person’s face in the hands of a surgeon, whose appearance is gonna change, but it’s still the same person behind that face and we guess an important factor, in this case, would be that the surgeon itself is obviously Katatonia, not a stranger! If there’s one album in our repertoire that’s suited for a thing like this, it’s ‘Dead End Kings’". - Anders (Katatonia)"
