Additional notes
Katatonia (Catatonia) is a psychiatric condition often associated with schizophrenia. It is characterized by a general absence of motor activity or violent, hyperactive behavior. The word "catatonia" (κατατονία) is also a Greek word for low tone, under tone or commonly down-tempo.

The band's official autobiography, from the very beginning up to "Night Is the New Day", was available as the tour programme, during the "Last Fair Day Gone Night" tour. It's written by Anders Nyström, Jonas Renkse and Daniel Liljekvist, and includes a photo collage.
