KATATONIA: Stolen Guitars Returned

September 24, 2010

According to a posting on KATATONIA's Facebook page, the two guitars that were stolen while the Swedish band was performing on September 18, 2010 at Station 4 in St. Paul, Minnesota have been turned in to the police. The group states, "We won't get into the murky ugly details right now as the priority was and is that we get them back on the road for our shows and then on to the competition winners, so let's celebrate that for now while the police continue to do their job."

Pictures of the Mayones guitars that were stolen can be seen in the giveaway competition ad below.
