PEACEVILLE RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM SWEDEN’S KATATONIA – ‘THE FALL OF HEARTS’
Katatonia, the Swedish purveyors of dark progressive rock/metal, have announced that their eagerly awaited 10th studio album, 'The Fall of Hearts' will be released on 20th May through their long-time home of Peaceville Records.
The official follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed 'Dead End Kings' was recorded at Stockholm’s Studio Gröndahl & Tri-lamb Studio, and was self-produced by Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse. Mixing and mastering duties were carried out by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Ishahn, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios, with Karl Daniel Lidén (Switchblade, The Ocean, Greenleaf) brought in as engineer.
Katatonia have spent the past four years since the release of 'Dead End Kings' touring the world, as well as expanding their fanbase through two special albums on Kscope, the sister label of Peaceville. 2013 saw the release of 'Dethroned and Uncrowned' which exploded the core of the songs on 'Dead End Kings' creating new moods and textures. In 2015, they released the live acoustic album and concert film, 'Sanctitude'. Both releases illustrate the band’s journey toward this, their current more progressive sound.
'The Fall of Hearts' is the first record to feature new drummer Daniel ’Mojjo’ Moilanen and with the addition of their recently recruited guitarist Roger Öjersson (Tiamat), who came in just in time to sprinkle some blistering solos on the album, Katatonia will continue to push their musical boundaries beyond their roots in the metal scene while drawing in new fans from across the musical spectrum and put them on par with peers such as Opeth and Anathema, cementing Katatonia’s place as one of the most revered and cherished of all bands in the world of modern heavy music.
The dramatic yet desolate artwork was created by long time designer and illustrator Travis Smith. Katatonia will be appearing at a number of European festivals across the summer including Hellfest and Tuska Open Air followed by a headline Autumn set to be announced soon.
Peaceville will be releasing 'The Fall Of Hearts' as a 12 track CD presented in a digipak with a 16 page colour booklet.
