Union Chapel acoustic set to be filmed for upcoming DVD

In May 2014 Katatonia began to take their ‘Unplugged & Reworked’ set-up on the road for the first time, presenting an intimate evening with the band each night performing tracks from 2013’s Dethroned and Uncrowned alongside atmospheric classics from their entire career, stripped and reworked.
The band have now announced that their sold out London show at the stunning Union Chapel on 16th May will be filmed for a very special DVD release later in the year on Kscope.

KATATONIA PARTS WAY WITH GUITARIST, BRUCE SOORD STEPS IN FOR ‘UNPLUGGED & REWORKED’ TOUR

It has been some time coming but guitarist Per ‘Sodomizer’ Eriksson and Katatonia have now mutually agreed to part ways. Per joined the band in 2010 as a live session player and after some substantial touring quickly became a steady fixture being heavily involved in the recording of Katatonia’s 2012 critically acclaimed studio album ‘Dead End Kings’.

A difference in views on the band’s current operative as well as last year’s decision from Per to permanently live in Barcelona have made his involvement in the band too problematic, both for him and for the remaining band members. They part ways as good friends and on a related note, his position within the death metal “super-group” Bloodbath remains unchanged and he will soon join his fellow band members in the studio to record their 4th album to be released on Peaceville records this fall.
