While Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES continue to promote their acclaimed latest studio album, "The Nightmare Of Being", they have now checked in after a North American tour as well as an intense run of summer festivals across Europe and in Japan with the news that founding member and guitarist Anders Björler is returning to the band's lineup after a handful of years of absence.

AT THE GATES vocalist Tomas Lindberg comments the news: "It is with great pleasure we welcome Anders Björler, one of the founding members, back into the band. We are excited to tell you that we are already starting the work on the follow up to 'The Nightmare Of Being', with the same lineup that wrote 'Terminal Spirit Disease', 'Slaughter Of The Soul' and 'At War with Reality'. Anders's first show back in the band will be Damnation Fest in the U.K., and he will join us on the European tour together with IN FLAMES later this year. Great times! It really feels like a second rebirth of the band, and we are looking forward to this new chapter!"
Next up, AT THE GATES will appear at U.K.'s Damnation festival before embarking on a massive tour across Europe featuring IN FLAMES, IMMINENCE and ORBIT CULTURE between November 12 and December 17.
