Katatonia release Old Heart Falls lyric video


Katatonia have issued a lyric video for their track Old Heart Falls.

It’s the first material lifted from the band’s upcoming album The Fall Of Hearts, out on May 20 via Peaceville Records.

Vocalist and guitarist Jonas Renkse says of the track: “A song with lush textures, distinct dynamics and a memorable chorus are the trademarks to some of the most beloved Katatonia songs.

Old Heart Falls substantiates all of those attributes, but is not by any means defining the album as a whole. There is more to come.”

Earlier this month, the band revealed that Paradise Lost’s Greg Mackintosh appears on the record, which is the Swedish outfit’s first with guitarist Roger Ojersson and drummer Daniel ‘Mojjo’ Moilanen.

The Fall Of Hearts is now available for pre-order in CD, vinyl, earbook, CD/DVD and bundle editions.

Katatonia have a number of festival dates scheduled for this year, with further live shows to be announced in due course.
