Entombed Members To Reunite At Special Show
The campaign was launching to fund the deluxe reissues of the albums "DCLXVI – To Ride Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth," "Same Difference" and "Uprising."
Alex Hellid revealed that there are plans for a special performance that would mark the first time that he and Uffe (Cederlund) and Nicke (Andersson) will play together again as Entombed in 17 years.
The performance will be taking place on February 1st, 2014 at Gävle Konserthus, Sweden where the band will be joined by a massive orchestra and choir.
Here is what Hellid had to say in the update on the band's Pledge Music site, "Thank you all so much for pledging and making us reach our goal to fund the first three(man) re-issues!
[He posted a link to a] classical version of 'Blessed Be' from our second album Clandestine performed by the Nordic Chamber Orchestra at Tonhallen in Sundsvall, Sweden, 12 April 2013.
February 1st, 2014 we will do it again at Gävle Konserthus, Sweden, with Gävle Symphonic (65 piece) Orchestra, 40 piece a choir and and last but not least original members Uffe Cederlund and Nicke Andersson.
We will be performing Clandestine as arranged by Thomas Von Wachenfeldt and it will be the first time in 17 years that me, Uffe (Cederlund) and Nicke (Andersson) play together again as Entombed.
We are all very excited to start working on this project and look forward to see where it'll take us!" Check out the Pledge Music page here.
