Canadian hyperblasters, KATAKLYSM, will celebrate their 25th band anniversary in 2017. In support of this noticeable jubilee, the band will play special shows and bring their classic records 'Shadows & Dust' and 'Serenity In Fire' on European stages in their entirety.
The band commented:
"It's hard to think that 25 years have already arrived, feels like yesterday when we were in high school being teen rebels and we started a band called KATAKLYSM, hard to believe that through everything this band has been through, we are still standing tall, but when you really think hard a few words can summon it all: Perseverance, strength, belief and honesty, those were and are the key ingredients for KATAKLYSM success and of course killer anthems who have stood the test of time!
We have taken this moment to stop and reflect and thought we should celebrate this event, as it doesn't happen often to bands, to still be meaningful to the world and achieve 25 years of career, with this we also noticed that one of our breakthrough albums 'Shadows & Dust' will turn 15 years old in 2017, so what better way to send a big thank you back to our fans by revisiting this classic record and its follow up 'Serenity In Fire', two landmarks in KATAKLYSM's on going blistering career?
We decided to make a special event with select dates and bring this idea to life with a tour called 'A Moment In Time: Shadows & Dust vs. Serenity In Fire' where KATAKLYSM will play both albums in their entirety, with a brand new stage show reflecting those two records, for this special occasion KATAKLYSM has invited their old friends in GRAVEWORM from Italy to open up the festivities, who themselves supported KATAKLYSM in Europe and in the US during the 'Shadows & Dust' and 'Serenity In Fire' campaign era, we are beyond excited for this event, it will be a one time thing for the cities we play it, so don't miss it, we will not bring it back, so make sure you come out and party with us celebrating our 25th anniversary!"
