Following the recent back injury of guitarist Roger Öjersson, and the rescheduling of their Eastern European dates to February/March 2018, prog legends Katatonia have announced via social media that they will be going on hiatus to re-evaluate what the future holds for the band:
Following our re-scheduled dates for the Baltics and Russia in Feb/March, due to recent issues and injury, it will mark the end of the touring cycle for ”The Fall of Hearts” and after much deliberation we have decided that we will put Katatonia on a short-term hiatus.
We need to take some time out to re-evaluate what the future holds for the band. Unfortunately this will affect the live dates in Norway, Germany, Spain and Poland, and we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Hopefully the guys don't take TOO long to figure out what they're doing. In the meantime, take a listen to their excellent latest album The Fall Of Hearts.
