KATATONIA: New Album Pushed Back To November

"Night Is The New Day", the eighth studio album from Swedish masters of melancholy KATATONIA, has had its release date pushed back to November 2 in Europe and November 10 in North America via Peaceville Records. The artwork for the CD was once again designed by Travis Smith and closes the visual concept for "The Great Cold Distance" phase. 13 tracks were reportedly laid down for the new album (out of which 11-12 songs will make it onto the final record), with the new material being described by the band as "our most varied, diverse and possibly strongest shit all together on one and the same album."

"The Great Cold Distance" was released in 2006 via Peaceville. The follow-up to 2003's "Viva Emptiness" was recorded at Fascination Street studios in the outskirts of Örebro, Sweden and was mastered at the Cutting Room in Stockholm.

KATATONIA's live performance from 2006's Summer Breeze open-air festival in Germany was released as a double-disc live album/DVD, entitled "Live Consternation". The "super jewelcase" packaging features both the audio on CD and the show on DVD (including both 2.0 and 5.1 versions). The artwork was once again designed by Travis Smith and closes the visual concept for "The Great Cold Distance" phase.
