KATATONIA: European Festival Appearances Cancelled

Sweden's KATATONIA have cancelled all of their previously announced European festival appearances dues to circumstances "beyond [their] control."

The following is the group's official statement on the matter:

"It is with great regret we must announce that the coming summer festivals KATATONIA had every intention of playing, have been confirmed cancelled by the organizers. These festival opportunities have been pulled from beneath the band by a third party and KATATONIA had nothing to do with these decisions. This third party (that are NO longer working nor representing the band in any way) has given out false information such as 'internal band problems' etc, that apparently should have been reasons for KATATONIA not participating in any of the festivals. That is simply NOT true. The band members themselves were all recovering and enjoying their private holidays when they were informed about the situation yesterday and sincerely apologize to everyone who planned on coming to see them this summer, and hope to see you at another time in the short future. Thank you for your understanding."
