KSCOPE RELEASE MID-PRICE CD & DVD MEDIA BOOK EDITION OF THE KATATONIA CONCERT FILM TAKEN FROM THE 'UNPLUGGED & REWORKED' SHOW AT LONDON'S UNION CHAPEL
Formed in Sweden in 1991 by Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse, Katatonia stand at the forefront of the dark progressive rock genre.
In September 2013 Kscope released 'Dethroned & Uncrowned', a reworking of the band's 2012 epic 'Dead End Kings' (originally released on Kscope's sister label Peaceville). 'Dethroned & Uncrowned' allowed Katatonia the opportunity to explore a more progressive sound, creating new moods and textures while still staying truthful to the core of the original songs. And in 2016 Katatonia released their most popular album to date, 'The Fall of Hearts', which has been on extensive world tours - and this release of live album 'Sanctitude' will come in between a five-week North American Tour and a Spring UK & Ireland Tour.
Katatonia took 'Dethroned & Uncrowned' on the road in Europe for the first time in May 2014 as 'Unplugged & Reworked'. The band presented an intimate acoustic evening performing tracks from the album alongside atmospheric classics from their entire career, stripped and reworked. Each venue on the tour was carefully chosen for its unique atmosphere.
'Sanctitude' is a concert film recorded at one of these prestigious venues, in the stunning candle-lit setting of London's Union Chapel, where they were joined on guitar & vocals by The Pineapple Thief frontman and songwriter Bruce Soord. The 80 minute set features 17 songs across the albums 'The Great Cold Distance', 'Viva Emptiness', 'Brave Murder Day','Last Fair Deal Gone Down' and of course, 'Dead End Kings' / 'Dethroned & Uncrowned', including fan favourite 'Teargas'. The show closes with the sublime 'The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here' and a special guest appearance by Norwegian vocalist Silje Wergeland of Dutch legends The Gathering.
This mid-price CD & DVD features the full 1 hour 20minute live concert of 17 tracks (79:59 - Audio: DVD-V: stereo 24/48 LPCM) with the DVD also containing the 'Beyond The Chapel' documentary with over 60 minutes of additional footage including brand new interviews with Anders Nystrom & Jonas Renkse plus unseen backstage clips. The 2 disc set is completed by being presented in deluxe media book packaging together with a 24 page booklet featuring exclusive photos from across the European tour.
