Press Release for Katatonia’s 8th LP – On Peaceville Records
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOVEMBER 10, 2009
KATATONIA’S ‘NIGHT IS THE NEW DAY’ NOW AVAILABLE IN NORTH AMERICA
Eighth Studio Album Out Today on Peaceville Records
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Sweden’s definitive progressive metal outfit, Katatonia, has finally unleashed its eighth studio album, Night is the New Day, in the US and Canada, today, courtesy of Peaceville Records. The new record, which released in Europe last week, is the follow up to the highly acclaimed 2006 release, The Great Cold Distance.
“Night Is The New Day is possibly the greatest ‘heavy’ record I’ve heard in the last 10 years,” states Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt.
“Night is the New Day is so strong, I’m confident with a little elbow grease Katatonia might just be the darlings of 2009. If they aren’t, I’m kicking ass and taking names,” raves Decibel Magazine.
