Katatonia have released the first full track titled, Old Heart Falls, from their highly anticipated new album, The Fall of Hearts. It’s due for release on 20 May 2016 through Peaceville Records/Rocket Distribution.
On the release of the first new song Jonas Renkse comments: “A song with lush textures, distinct dynamics and a memorable chorus are the trademarks to some of the most beloved Katatonia songs.
Old Heart Falls, substantiates all of those attributes, but is not by any means defining the album as a whole. There is more to come…”
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 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.
The Fall Of Hearts, will be released on the following formats: Deluxe 12” hard book, 2 Disc CD & DVD Media book, CD, 2LP, Digital download with new song, Old Heart Falls, available as instant download from Friday 1st April.
The Fall of Hearts will be released on 20 May 2016 via Peaceville Records/Rocket Distribution.
