Katatonia

New video 'Lethean' launches

Katatonia, Sweden's dark rock masters, have completed work on their latest video for the track 'Lethean', lifted from last year's acclaimed 'Dead End Kings' opus. The video was shot by Lasse Hoile, notable for his previous work with the Katatonia as well as Opeth & Porcupine Tree.

In related news, it has also been announced that Katatonia are shortlisted for a Swedish Grammy award in the 'Best Metal Album' category for 'Dead End Kings'.

This year also sees the band embark upon an Australian tour with countrymen Opeth in March, as well as an extensive North American tour in April & May.

Released in August 2012, ‘Dead End Kings’ is a rich, adventurous and endlessly evocative masterwork that exhibits all the Swedish quintet’s established traits while absorbing countless fresh ideas into that monumental sonic brew, this is plainly the strongest and most beguiling album in the Katatonia catalogue to date. It also proves that sadness comes in many shades and that no one is safe from its cold allure.
“Dead End Kings represents progression and taking things to the next level,” says Jonas Renkse. ”The writing was a little more intense and spontaneous for this one. I think that’s the biggest difference. But it was made with the same mindset as the last few albums. It just had a little more fire involved.”
