Following the announcement that KATATONIA will be returning with a brand-new album, City Burials, on April 24 via Peaceville Records, and the release of the album’s debut single “Lacquer”, the band present their next single and video for “Behind The Blood”. This track is one of the highlights from City Burials, bursting into life with a trademark screaming guitar solo before dropping into an upbeat distinctive and hugely memorable KATATONIA chorus.
Vocalist Jonas Renkse states: “”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.”
With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, City Burials stands as KATATONIA’s new triumph of deep and enigmatic progressive rock — the fruits of a rejuvenating and profound chapter in the band’s legacy; a catalyst for its creators, with a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an ever-evolving life. Compiled into one of their most important modern works and statements to date, the finely honed instrumentation provides a multi-textured backdrop with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us through these latest trials of loss and ruin.
