Katatonia stream lyric video for new track ‘Old Heart Falls’

By on 1 April 2016

Katatonia have produced a lyric video to go with new track ‘Old Heart Falls’ taken from their new album ‘The Fall of Hearts’ which is out 20 May on Peaceville Records. You can order ‘The Fall of Hearts’ and other Katatonia merchandise here.

On the release of this first new song, Jonas Renkse comments:

“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…”

About the lyric video Anders Nyström adds:

“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…”
