Katatonia have released their live performance of the »City Burials« single »Behind The Blood«, taken from the forthcoming live lockdown session album »Dead Air«.

Vocalist Jonas Renkse comments: “Here’s our first and (so far) only live rendition of »Behind The Blood« from our latest album, »City Burials«. As weird as these times are, it gives us a little comfort to know that we made an attempt to defy the situation and did what we miss the most right now: playing a show.”

April 2020 saw Katatonia present their eleventh studio opus, the poignant »City Burials«, to unanimous acclaim but with the unforeseen global event transpiring this year resulting in their album touring plans being put on hold, Katatonia conducted a more intimate “lockdown” show which was streamed live from Studio Grondahl, Stockholm on May 9th. »Dead Air« offers fans a full 88-minute set containing 20 tracks from the band’s extensive and illustrious repertoire to date, with inclusions spanning two decades of dark progressive greatness, and essentially also debuting three of the »City Burials« album tracks in a live setting.

The recording, mixing & engineering work was orchestrated by David Castillo, notable for his extensive body of work with Katatonia to date, and the performance itself was professionally filmed by Blackbox Video.

Katatonia is:
Jonas Renkse – Vocals, Guitars, Keyboards, Programming
Anders Nyström – Guitars, Programming, Backing Vocals
Roger Öjersson – Guitars
Niklas Sandin – Bass
Daniel Moilanen – Drums
