Katatonia have premiered an animated video for their song “The Winter Of Our Passing.” This track is from the band’s new album “City Burials,“ which was released today (April 24). Jonas Renkse said the following:

“The Winter of Our Passing – masterly perceived by Costin Chioreanu. The letting go of what once was of great importance, now reduced to just another loss. Let’s bow before the flame we’ve all deserted. But thank you for listening.”

Katatonia Premiere New Song “The Winter Of Our Passing”

Katatonia have premiered a new song titled “The Winter Of Our Passing.” This track is from the band’s new album “City Burials,“ which will be released on April 24. Jonas Renkse said the following:

“‘The Winter Of Our Passing‘ is a concise song that mixes electronic elements with a classic Katatonia chorus. It’s a song about surrender and trying to navigate the darkness.”

Katatonia Premiere “Behind The Blood” Music Video

Katatonia have premiered a new video for their new song “Behind The Blood.” This track is from the band’s new album “City Burials,“ which will be released on April 24. Vocalist Jonas Renkse commented:

“‘Behind The Blood‘ is a celebration of the heavy metal music that we all grew up with, modified to fit the Katatonia universe. Whilst lyrically it is telling the tale of dark revelry, to awaken the blood with the sound and taste of thunder.”

Anders Nyström said the following about the new record:

“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.”

Katatonia Appear To Be Working On New Music

It looks like Katatonia are working on new music. The band recently shared a photo from the studio while reflecting on 2019. They also seemed to hint that a new release is coming in 2020.

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
