"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

they will play at the Bloodstock festival here in England - I am happy!
so it looks like I may see them twice next year! I wouldn't have thought that an hour ago
Stigmatized - 19.10.2007 at 02:13  
Damn, is everyone gonna re-unite now?
Infurnace - 19.10.2007 at 02:20  
I will certainly go and see them on Wacken '08. This might be the last chance you can see them.

great news... simply one of the best bands ever
Bad English - 19.10.2007 at 09:39  
GREAT hope album or live DVD be out too or live CD
White Winter Sun - 19.10.2007 at 10:20  
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
Carrion - 19.10.2007 at 10:27  
Ruis Rock huh? Well we'll just see.
ylside - 19.10.2007 at 11:34  
Awesome. I'll be waiting for..videos on youtube then haha.
Metal Maiden - 19.10.2007 at 12:00  
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...

First Spice Girls, and now At the Gates
Darkside Momo - 19.10.2007 at 13:42  
Yes yes yes !!!!
Carcass and At The Gates !

@ Metal Maiden : the three shows are the only one confirmed for now. Wait a little !! There sure will be other shows.
Deadsoulman - 19.10.2007 at 14:02  
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
Eternal Flames - 19.10.2007 at 14:07  
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.
Katatronik - 19.10.2007 at 15:21  
Great news indeed, I hope this reunion will be for long time and not for a couple of shows... Same as Carcass...
BloodTears - 19.10.2007 at 16:26  
whats with bands now? oh well...
Abattoir - 19.10.2007 at 16:41  
yeah, At The Gates again ...that should be some great shows...or they could together longer time...

Man that's great news, I know what's coming next is only going to happen in my dreams (hope not), it would be awesome if they'd surprise everyone with one final cd hehe
