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

I will certainly go and see them on Wacken '08. This might be the last chance you can see them.

Great news, I like this band, and good to see them reunited even it's for some festival. And "It could be your last chance" is not affirmative

OK, so what's the fucking point in reuniting for 3 shows!!?It's like serve someone an appetizer, and then let him starve...I bet they've been paid big money to attract more audience...same with Carcass...Both these bands are legends, i'm a huge fan of theirs and would love to see them live...But i just refuse to accept they're reunited in such "good terms", only to do a couple of shows...I really hope i'm wrong, but only time will tell...

I hope they'll go to Hellfest, Graspop or any other festival I might go to After seeing Atheist and Cynic, Carcass and At The Gates would be perfection

I wasn't expected At The Gates to reunite, but nevertheless this is great news. The amount of bands that are actually doing reunion shows/reuniting within the last year is quite vast. It's a bit strange that they've all reunited within the same time period.

Great news indeed, I hope this reunion will be for long time and not for a couple of shows... Same as Carcass...
