So, if you haven’t grabbed it already, go ahead! Remember it’s free to keep up with all the latest updates in the world of KATATONIA directly in your iPhone.”
KATATONIA‘s May 6, 2011 concert at Koko in London, England was professionally filmed/recorded for a future DVD release. The show, which was part of the 20th-anniversary “Last Fair Day Gone Night Tour 2011”, saw the band perform two sets. The first set consisted of a performance of the entire “Last Fair Deal Gone Down” album front to back. The second set was a mixture of carefully picked songs from the band’s extensive catalogue.
KATATONIA released special editions of the critically acclaimed albums “Last Fair Deal Gone Down” and “Night Is The New Day” on April 25. The 10th-anniversary edition “Last Fair Deal Gone Down” was presented in deluxe mediabook packaging, as a two-disc edition containing tracks from the now hard-to-find singles “Teargas” and “Tonight’s Music”. The reissue of 2009’s “Night Is The New Day” includes bonus tracks from the “The Longest Year” EP. Both titles were presented with newly updated cover artwork courtesy of original artist Travis Smith.
