The Swedish dark progressive rock/metal band Katatonia announced the release date of the tenth studio album "The Fall of Hearts". The record comes out on May 20 via Peaceville Records.
The upcoming LP 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, Ihsahn, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios, with Karl Daniel Lidén (Switchblade, The Ocean, Greenleaf) brought in as engineer. The cover artwork was created by the artist Travis Smith, who has been working with Katatonia more than 15 years.
"The Fall of Hearts" is the first album which features the band’s new drummer Daniel 'Mojjo' Moilanen and guitarist Roger Öjersson (Tiamat), who recorded several solos on the album.
Katatonia comment on "The Fall Of Hearts": "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 spiralling night of our musical legacy."
