Anders Nyström, Roger Öjersson: Katatonia - new album and tour details

10th studio album "The Fall of Hearts" out May 20 on Peaceville

SWEDEN - Katatonia, the Swedish purveyor of dark progressive rock/metal, has revealed details of its eagerly awaited 10th studio album, The Fall of Hearts, set for release on the May 20, 2016 through the band's long-time home of Peaceville Records. 

The band commented: "This album is probably everything we unknowingly ever dreamed of to release. It's a bleak but adventurous journey through our elements, we haven't held back, we have pushed to get forward and backward in the ever spiraling night of our musical legacy."

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 and Jonas Renkse. Mixing and mastering duties were carried out by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Ihsahn, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios, with Karl Daniel Lidén (Switchblade, The Ocean, Greenleaf) brought in as engineer.

The dramatic yet desolate artwork was created by long time Katatonia designer and illustrator Travis Smith.

Katatonia has spent the past four years since the release of Dead End Kings touring the world, as well as expanding its fan base through two special albums on Kscope, the sister label of Peaceville. 2013 saw the release of Dethroned & Uncrowned which exploded the core of the songs on Dead End Kings creating new moods and textures. In 2015, the band released the live acoustic album and concert film, Sanctitude. Both releases illustrate the band's journey toward this, its current more progressive sound.

The Fall of Hearts is the first record to feature new drummer Daniel 'Mojjo' Moilanen along with the addition of recently recruited guitarist

Roger Öjersson (Tiamat), who came in just in time to sprinkle some blistering solos on the album. With its new lineup, Katatonia will continue to push its musical boundaries beyond its roots in the metal scene while drawing in new fans from across the musical spectrum like peers such as Opeth and Anathema have also done, cementing Katatonia's place as one of the most revered and cherished of all bands in the world of modern heavy music.

More details of The Fall of Hearts will be released shortly. Stay tuned for more information on Katatonia.

Danny Tunker, Per Nilsson, Hannes Grossmann: Bare Trap - single from fusion project

Like the beginning of many a great blues lyric: I woke up one the beginning of December 2015 while working on songs for a jazz fusion project I'm working on with my buddy Christian Muenzner (more on that later!) with most of this song in my head. I finished it that morning and whipped up a demo later that same day. 

After a few days of being undecided on what to do with it I decided to ask Hannes Grossmann and Erlend Caspersen to play on it and release it on my own. After sending everything off to Per for mixing and mastering we decided the song would benefit from keys and Per added his magic to the song as well as preserve everybody's performance in crisp detail with his masterful mix.

When I received the final mix it struck me that I wanted artwork too (further emphasising the whole 'spur of the moment/no thinking ahead' feel of this project) and after looking through my albums I approached Plini because of the cover he created for his song 'Cloudburst'. I was thinking of a more urban interpretation of that cover and he immediately grasped what I was going for, even suggesting teaming up with Demas Rusli, a good friend of his and stunning photographer in his own right. What they came up with was better than I imagined possible. Glorious!

Everyone involved brought their A-Game and lifted the whole project to a different level for me. The fun I had and the gratitude I feel for their contributions can only be summed up thusly - Hannes, Erlend, Per, Demas and Plini: I wish to thank you with every fiber of my being.

As for anyone reading this: I sincerely hope you'll enjoy listening to this song as much as I loved making it.
