THE KINGS RETURN!
Atmospheric progressive melodic powerhouses KATATONIA will release their stunning new album 'City Burials' on April 24 through Peaceville.
Combining their signature melancholic tones, spellbinding riffs and emotionally charged vocals with a few new twists and turns, the band have delivered what is arguably their finest album to date and worthy follow up to 2016's The Fall Of Hearts.
We spoke to KATATONIA co-founder and vocalist Jonas Renkse on the Everblack Podcast about 'City Burials' and his amazing vocal delivery on it, working with his longtime collaborator Anders Nyström in two bands, how they celebrate album releases, doing double duties with Bloodbath and Katatonia, how he is holding up during the Covid-19 lock down and more!

“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.” Anders Nyström
Katatonia - City Burials is out on April 24 and will be released on CD, deluxe mediabook CD with bonus tracks, black and coloured vinyl LPs with bonus track and digitally.
