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 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.”
