From their myspace:
We will again perform two sets at each show; the first set will see the band play the front to back of 'Last Fair Deal Gone Down'- the album that put Katatonia firmly on the musical map and coincidentally also celebrates 10 years since its release. The second set will consist of a mixed set of carefully picked songs from our extensive catalogue. In its entirety the show will be well over two and a half hours of live music.
The December 14th show at Göta Källare in our home town of Stockholm will be made extra special by having Enter The Hunt opening up the show, but also by the appearance of four very special guests: Long time former band mates and brothers Fredrik and Mattias Norrman will take on their old bass and guitar duties on selected songs. Also confirmed is the one and only Mr Guillaume Le Huche (a.k.a. Israphel Wing), known for being the band's bass guitarist on their very first studio album 'Dance of December Souls' back in 1993. And the last special guest to be announced is Krister Linder who's flying over from New York City and taking on vocals duties next to Jonas Renkse to depart the night's performance…
We've also managed to persuade the mysterious and secretive collaborator Frank Default to be part of the show. Nevertheless, this man shouldn't be a stranger if you know your Katatonia history since he was the painter of our electronic colorbook on 'Night Is The New Day' and he has also been previosuly featured with a bunch of Katatonia remixes on a few of our singles.
Founding member and guitar player Anders Nystrom comments:
"Hosting and featuring old members, guests and friends together on the same evening for the purpose of celebrating our 20th year anniversary is not only awesomely killer, but it's also guaranteed to be a one time event only and never to happen again. To be honest, I'm just as excited as you are to be part of it and let the circle complete itself in our hometown where it started!"
