KATATONIA is set to hit the road shortly in support of its tenth studio effort, The Fall Of Hearts - A beautiful behemoth of desolate and dark forces, KATATONIA’s latest offering was self-produced by its own Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse.

Today, Sweden’s reigning progressive rock/metal king is proud to reveal their beautifully emotive music video to "Shifts", directed by Lasse Hoile, taken from The Fall Of Hearts.

“As the music for this song unfolded it took off in a different direction from usually what we do. Driven by its gentle, lush and shimmering rendition of melancholy it would take you for a waltz daydreaming of the past, longing for the happiest times of your life, only to find that when the dance is over, emptiness has filled another chamber of your heart. Both Jonas and Lasse enhanced these ideas into beautifully told lyrics and a simple, but very touching video.” - Anders Nyström

KATATONIA vocalist Jonas Renkse reveals the how the song’s lyrical concept was born: “Once I heard Anders' initial demo for "Shifts" I had a feeling that it needed a timeless kind of lyric. The sentimental kind of music made me think of how memories of better days can keep one alive... and it had me writing down a vague, modest thought on war, how it separates people, and ultimately brings a certain death that would only be eased by the thought of past days and a loved one.”

“You can hear that the song is about loss and how it's hard to let go of someone once they are gone for good. The woman in the video spends a lot of time working alone which makes her struggle with coping even harder, as being alone gives you too much time to think and brings back all those memories. The concept is something that everyone can relate to, which makes it very powerful” director Lasse Hoile explains.

KATATONIA begin their European headline shows on 22nd September with a special show performing The Great Cold Distance at The Ancient Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria before heading out on "The Fallen Hearts Of Europe" tour and then they’ll head to Australia for shows in December.
