Dear Friends and Fans,
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we deliver this news to you… that Paatos will be cancelling their entire European tour in November due to a very tragic turn of events… The lead singer, Petronella Nettermalm’s sister has been hospitalized this weekend in critical condition.
Glassville Music and the band have decided to cancel the whole tour in order for Petronella and her family to be with their loved ones in such hard times.
Paatos was really looking forward to this tour. Playing lots of old songs as well as material of the new album, but for now it must wait.
For all of you who have already bought tickets, you can return your tickets of course.
Again, we are very sorry that this has happened but we hope you all understand that family comes first and it’s in these times that it becomes apparent what is most important in this life.
We are hoping to reschedule the tour for Spring 2013… so we will keep you updated.
Thank you all for your support!
Paatos is a Swedish rock group based in Stockholm.

The band shows influences from a wide variety of styles and genres. Some call it Post-rock, others Progressive, and Goth is sometimes referred to. Paatos has described their own music as Cinematic Rock, despite their reluctance to categorize or pigeon-hole their musical expression.
