More Info:

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 Grondahl & Tri lamb Studio, and was self produced by Anders Nystrom & Jonas Renkse. Mixing and mastering duties were carried out by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Paradise Lost, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios, with Karl Daniel Liden (Cult Of Luna, Mono, Crippled Black Phoenix) brought in as engineer.

Reviews:

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 that exploded the core of the songs on DEK creating new moods and textures. In 2015, they released the live acoustic album and concert film Sanctitude. Both releases showed 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 (Engel, The Project Hate) and with the addition of their soon to be announced new guitarist.

Katatonia will continue to push their musical boundaries beyond their roots in the metal scene while drawing in fans from all across the musical spectrum putting them on par with peers such as Opeth and Anathema and will cement 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 (Anathema, Opeth, Avenged Sevenfold, Bloodbath, Cradle Of Filth).

Katatonia will be appearing at a number of European festivals across the summer including Hellfest and Tuska Open Air, followed by a headlining tour of the world where they'll return to North America for the first time since 2013.
