At The Gates recently welcomed the return of founding member and guitarist Anders Björler, as they are now gearing up for their European tour with In Flames that kicks off this weekend. To get everyone pumped for the upcoming trek, the group has shared two live video clips of “The Burning Darkness (Live at Roadburn)” and “The Scar (Live at Roadburn).” The clips were originally featured on the bonus disc edition of the group’s latest offering, The Nightmare of Being, which these two deep cuts from earlier in their career were performed in Tilburg, The Netherlands at Roadburn Festival in 2019. 


Vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant comments:

“We are super excited to finally be able to go on a European tour supporting our latest album, ‘The Nightmare Of Being’. Adding to the excitement is of course the fact that founding guitar player Anders Björler is back in the fold. With the fantastic reception we got at Damnation Festival last weekend, it feels like a really great time to be in At The Gates.  These two videos were recorded live during our Roadburn Festival performance, as part of my curation, a couple of years back. ‘The Burning Darkness’ is one of the cornerstones in our career for me personally. And having Costin’s great video art as a backdrop for that song was just amazing…Very happy with how this came out! For ‘The Scar’, also a personal favourite from our early career, Costin has shot a captivating video that really catches the vibe of the track. Here you can also hear the fantastic Yo Quail Quartet playing together with us!”
