On Thursday 22nd September, Katatonia will perform an exclusive show in the magnificent Roman theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The band will be joined by the renowned Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra where together they will perform their classic 2006 album The Great Cold Distance in its entirety, celebrating 10 years since it was first released.
This once in a lifetime performance will see classic and current Katatonia songs presented in a stunning new way, within the walls of this epic venue. This prestigious evening will be orchestrated by conductor Levon Manukyan – the founder of the Levon Manukyan Collegium Musicum orchestra – who has worked with the likes of Opeth, Paradise Lost, Anathema and many others.
Katatonia’s first set will see the band perform The Great Cold Distance in its entirety alongside the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra, followed by a second set, without the orchestra, that will see the band playing a selection of their greatest hits, both old and new.
Katatonia are also gearing up for the release of their eagerly awaited 10th studio album, The Fall Of Hearts, which is set for release on the 20th May 2016 through their long-time home of Peaceville Records.
