KATATONIA – Release New Lyric Video


KATATONIA has revealed the first full track, entitled “Old Heart Falls,” from upcoming new album “The Fall of Hearts.”

The album is due for release on May 2th0 through Peaceville Records and a lyric clip for “Old Heart Falls” – directed by Lasse Hoile – is available HERE.

There is more to come…”

About the lyric video, guitarist Anders Nyström added: “Knowing we didn’t want another ‘font circus’ with all these words and letters competing in Olympic acrobatics, we decided to make it extremely simple but also very real… 30 years ago when we were active in the underground tape-trading scene, there were no computers around, so we had to write all our letters by hand, or when feeling extra motivated, we used a typewriter. I clearly remember writing letters on a typewriter with a ribbon directly to paper created a special feeling that no computer would ever emulate. So determined to bring back this feeling for a brief couple of minutes, we passed on our idea to our talented friend Lasse Hoile who made sure this beautiful Royal typewriter served a final purpose before crawling all the way back to the start, returning to dust…”
