As we're moving into the holidays and 2019 is about to close its chapter, we’d like to extend a thanks to everyone who supported us this year! On the live front, we saw the night come down over several cities as NITND celebrated its 10th anniversary. Another dear experience! Oh and for the record, that's now our 4th album that we’ve played from start to finish, not bad right? However, 2020 is the threshold to a new decade and will see us keepin’ busy for other reasons than paying tribute to our past. Actually, here’s a pic to give you a clue about what’s waiting on the other side… Will we see you there? #Katatonia #katatoniaband #2020 #callonthebird #heretostay #madeinsweden #danishdynamite

Katatonia To Go On “Short-Term Hiatus”

Katatonia have announced that they will be going on a “short-term hiatus.” This decision comes as a result of “recent issues and injury”

The band said the following:

“Following our re-scheduled dates for the Baltics and Russia in Feb/March, due to recent issues and injury, it will mark the end of the touring cycle for ”The Fall of Hearts” and after much deliberation we have decided that we will put Katatonia on a short-term hiatus.

We need to take some time out to re-evaluate what the future holds for the band. Unfortunately this will affect the live dates in Norway, Germany, Spain and Poland, and we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

Katatonia Premiere “Shifts” Music Video

Katatonia have premiered a new video for their song “Shifts.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “The Fall Of Hearts,” which is available now.

Anders Nyström said following:

“As the music for this song unfolded it took off in a different direction from usually what we do. Driven by its gentle, lush and shimmering rendition of melancholy it would take you for a waltz daydreaming of the past, longing for the happiest times of your life, only to find that when the dance is over, emptiness has filled another chamber of your heart. Both Jonas and Lasse enhanced these ideas into beautifully told lyrics and a simple, but very touching video.”
