A progression in the band's decade long evolution.
New decades welcome new chapters and bands like KATATONIA sit at the forefront of straying from complacency to dare into new ventures. Risks resulting in complete genre changes can often backfire for bands that are widely respected for a particular sound, but despite said public disapproval, Jonas Renkse & Anders Nyström have driven the band into new heights. What began as a career of menacing, slow-paced death for KATATONIA is now a progressively mature and melancholic one, visible clearly in the band's newly announced album City Burials. The band's latest outing is set to arrive on April 24th via Peaceville Records and the lead single Lacquer is available now, offering a glimpse into the world of ruin that KATATONIA have built.
Founder Anders Nyström comments of the album announcement:
“In days and nights of black and silver, the dead end king will come. From pieces of broken mirrors there will be a crown bestowed upon his head. In reflections of shattered glass not only the seasons will turn, but also the change disguised by the lapse of time. His mind will have to come to bear the weight of everything that was left behind and forgotten. Archiving the inaccessible. Celebrating the abandoned and mourning the destroyed. The city burials.”
