While Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES continue to promote their acclaimed latest studio album “The Nightmare Of Being”, they have now checked in after a North American tour as well as an intense run of Summer festivals across Europe and in Japan with the news that founding member and guitarist Anders Björler is returning to the band’s line-up after a handful of years of absence.
AT THE GATES vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant comments the news as follows: “It is with great pleasure we welcome Anders Björler, one of the founding members, back into the band. We are excited to tell you that we are already starting the work on the follow up to „The Nightmare of Being“, with the same line up that wrote „Terminal Spirit Disease“, „Slaughter of the Soul“ and „At War with reality“. Anders first show back in the band will be Damnation Fest in the UK, and he will join us on the European tour together with In Flames later this year. Great Times! It really feels like a second rebirth of the band, and we are looking forward to this new chapter!“
Anders Björler added the following comment: ““It feels like coming home for sure. I have been missing the guys of course, but also playing the guitar, writing music and the artistic creativity in general. I’ve been watching from the sidelines for a number of years, and I’ve been very proud of what they have created in my absence. I am really looking forward to writing a new album and getting back to playing live shows again…“
