Europe, you are in luck!
At The Gates will be playing a European and United Kingdom tour later this year with Triptykon and Morbus Chron.
Says At The Gates vocalist Tomas Lindberg:
“We are very excited for this tour. It will be our first proper tour of Europe since 1996. As we have been playing only festivals in Europe since the reunion in 2008, this will be the first chance for us to meet the fans of Europe in a more intimate environment. Playing live for our own crowd, our own people in smaller clubs is something that is essential to us as a band and we are looking forward to finally being able to deliver a full At The Gates show in this setting, without having to work around the schedules and conditions of bigger festivals.
“It will also be the first time ever that we will be able to present some new compositions in a live setting — as the new album will be released by then. It’s hard and uncompromising and I think the new songs will work great live next to the old songs. As for going out together with Triptykon, we couldn’t be more thrilled. I have always looked upon the work of Thomas Gabriel Fischer as a great source of inspiration. From naming my first band, Grotesque after a line in a Celtic Frost song back in 1988, to the mighty comeback with his new reincarnation with Triptykon. Seeing them live every day for three weeks will be mind-blowing.
“As for the opener Morbus Chron…they have just released one of the most exciting albums of modern death metal in a long while. They remind me so much of the spirit of early At The Gates. It’s as if every note is important and fills a certain purpose. It’s dark, it’s beautiful and it’s sincere. One of the most outstanding ‘new’ bands for sure. I sincerely believe that this is a tour that you shouldn’t miss out on, it will be spectacular. A killer bill!”
