At The Gates - To Reunite And Perform Live Next Summer

"Yes, it's true... At The Gates will reunite for some shows next summer."
So says the message left on the band's official website. Guitarist Anders has also commented regarding the reunion:

"Well, it felt like the timing was right for once. We have been talking about a possible reunion for years now, but this was the first time everything fell into place. For me personally, it feels like getting closure. The break-up over ten years ago was abrupt and left a bad vibe between us that took years to get over. We have a better relationship today and a more relaxed approach to who we are and what we do. The time is right to get together and play some shows. Try to catch us live in the summer 2008. It could be your last chance."

The following festivals are confirmed so far:

04-06 July - Ruis Rock, Finland
31 July-02 Aug - Wacken Open Air, Germany
15-17 Aug - Bloodstock Open Air, Derby, England
