Commented the band: "We will play two sets, one electric and one semi acoustically, because of the release of our new live album 'Sleepy Buildings'. We are really excited to come back to Mexico, and of course, to come to Chile, home of a lot of die-hard GATHERING fans! See you all there!"
THE GATHERING's "semi-acoustic" live album, "Sleepy Buildings", is due on January 26 through Century Media Records. Recorded at two exclusive gigs held at the LUX movie theatre and venue in Nijmegen, Holland on August 21-22, "Sleepy Buildings" features selections from the group's entire career — from the classic debut "Always" to the commercial breakthough "Mandylion" to the trip-rock of "If_Then_Else".
