Katatonia will kick off their tour with Sólstafir on January 20, but will not be joined by guitarist Anders Nyström due to personal family reasons. Replacing Nyström will be guitarist Nico Elgstrand (Entombed, Entombed A.D.) for a little while until he’s able to rejoin the band.

“Hey everyone,

Anders here. Tomorrow, Friday the 20th, we launch Katatonia‘s brand new 12th album and we can’t wait to hear all your thoughts.

“The band’s eager to get out on the road and start the tour, but unfortunately I won’t be able to join them on this leg due to personal family reasons. However, good news is that we have a highly competent replacement in Mr Nico Elgstrand (Entombed A.D.) who already filled in for me on an earlier occasion and did an amazing job. So rest easy, the tour will not be affected in any way and everything the band has planned surely is something you don’t want to miss!

“Until I’ll be back on stage later this spring, I wish the guys and all our fans a great time on the road, under a sky void of stars…”
