KATATONIA: 'Last Fair Deal', 'Night Is The New Day' Special Editions Due In April

Sweden's KATATONIA will release special editions of the critically acclaimed albums "Last Fair Deal Gone Down" and "Night Is The New Day" on April 25 to coincide with a series of shows to mark the band's 20th anniversary. The 10th-anniversary edition "Last Fair Deal Gone Down" will be presented in deluxe mediabook packaging, as a two-disc edition containing tracks from the now hard-to-find singles "Teargas" and "Tonight's Music". The reissue of 2009's "Night Is The New Day" will include bonus tracks from the "The Longest Year" EP. Both titles will be presented with newly updated cover artwork courtesy of original artist Travis Smith.

Performances for the 20th-anniversary "Last Fair Day Gone Night Tour 2011" are scheduled for Luxembourg, Germany, Holland, France, England, and Greece, and the band will perform two sets at each show. The first set will see the band play "Last Fair Deal Gone Down" front to back. The second set will consist of a mixed set of carefully picked songs from the band's extensive catalogue.

KATATONIA is offering exclusive VIP ticket packages, limited to only 70 for each concert, which will include a laminated VIP pass exclusive to the show, access to soundcheck, a meet-and-greet with KATATONIA, a t-shirt exclusive to that particular show, a special tour program, and a very special limited-edition vinyl version of "Night Is The New Day", among other exclusive items. All the goods will be included in a specially made KATATONIA messenger bag. The VIP laminate will also allow early access to venues, so that VIPs can get the best seats in the house. In addition, all VIPs will automatically be entered into a draw for a grand prize made available by a selection of the band's equipment endorsers.
