Katatonia End Hiatus, Announce Night Is the New Day Anniversary Tour
Katatonia fans, rejoice! The “short term hiatus” the band announced at the end of 2017 has come to end barely more than a year later. The group has announced… well, here, I’ll just let them tell you:
“The umbral machinery known as Katatonia is starting to make its first moves after an idle year of stillness. We will begin our return with a celebration of our album Night Is the New Day which turns 10 years now in 2019.
“For the album’s 10th anniversary Peaceville are set to release a deluxe edition of this classic album on 17th May 2019, and to further commemorate this dark gem, we will return to the live arena to play ‘Night Is the New Day’ in its entirety at six select club shows in Europe in May.
“The 10th Anniversary edition of Night Is the New Day will feature new cover artwork from long-time collaborator Travis Smith, a glorious hi-res 5.1 remix created (for the first time) by Bruce Soord and sleeve notes by renowned journalist Dom Lawson.”
Neat! I betcha feel really silly now for being so sad when the band announced their hiatus. A year and change? Why, that’s barely a hiatus at all! Tool spent that long setting up Danny Carey’s kit for the recording of their new album, fer Chrissakes.
