Split up melodic death metallers At the Gates have announced their intentions to reunite for a limited number of shows in 2011. So far the band has only announced one confirmed show, a performance at Metaltown 2011 on June 17,2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden. This will mark the first time the band has performed since September 2008.
The band issued this statement:
“At the gates will do a limited run of select shows in 2011. Simply put, we had the time of our lives during the 2008 reunion and have decided to do a couple of more shows. Although we won’t be touring extensively, and we stick to the initial promise of not making anymore music.”
At the Gates split up in 1996 with Adrian Erlandsson, Jonas Bjorler, and Anders Bjorler going on to form The Haunted. In 2007 the band announced a string of reunion shows for 2008 including Wacken Open Air Festival, Hellfest, and others.
The band’s last studio album was “Slaughter of the Soul” released in November 1995 through Earache Records.
