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.
Guitarist and founding member Anders Nyström comments:
“This has been a different tour. I thought it was gonna be good, but it was better! Out with the distortion, the headbanging and the explosive lights… In with the acoustic guitars, chairs and the candles…. not permanently, just momentarily. It’s like having a guest chef cooking the menu this week, gotta enjoy it while it lasts, right? For the first time ever, we’ve been able to play some old beautiful churches and enjoy their sacred aesthetics and acoustics much to our advantage. Appropriately we also heard your prayers from near and afar and its now a fact the tour will include a DVD recording of the Union Chapel show in London. Come Friday, we will also have the honor to feature a very special guest too that will return the crown to the king.”
