Katatonia have issued the following update:

"We've been very busy lately writing and completing the material for our 8th studio album and we're proud to announce that Katatonia will enter the studio this summer, starting in a studio in the south of Sweden with drums courtesy of Daniel on June the 10th. We'll then continue on the remainder of the sessions in a studio here in Stockholm further through july and wrap it up in august.

We'll keep the info short for now as we'll launch a studio diary to give you all the in-depth information and details on the album making incl album/song-titles, audio teasers, album artwork and also our tour plans along the recording process. We can already confirm that initially 13 tracks will be recorded and a seIection of 11-12 songs will make it onto the album. We got a few big surprises to reveal and we're confident this material is our most varied, diverse and possibly strongest shit all together on one and the same album. The release date is set for late October on Peaceville."

Excellent news The Great Cold Distance was a very seemless dynamic album, my favourite of their work to date.

Yeah, but not all bands blatantly admit they have been experiencing a block and decideto delay production to prevent hindering the quality of the upcoming release

They'll hardly surpass the quality of Tonight's Decision Imo. But I'm hoping for some good songs.

They already surpassed it, big time, with Last Fair Deal Gone Down, and also Discouraged ones, which was before it..

Goddamnit, I wish people would stop rooting for the clearly lesser achievements out of some need to be unique.. it's cool if it's your favourite album, but don't make yourself sound like you're trying to be an objective critic..
ThunderAxe1989 - 04.06.2009 at 04:43  
Something to look forward to

Potato, potáto Your opinion is very important to me mr. cynic. Try not to get anger with simple things.

Their best are still without a doubt Brave Murder Day and Viva Emptiness and not Last Fair Deal Gone Down and Dsiscouraged Ones. I can't stand it when people don't know the difference between 'best' and 'favourite'

But on a more serious note there is no subjective best. Only opinions on what people deem best for themselves. One man's best is another man's worst. A lot of people call Great Cold Distance Kataonia's best whereas I regard it as their worst. Still good but not good enough to be compared to their other albums imo.
addiction - 06.06.2009 at 02:51  
Well i like all their albums so i think i won't be dissapointed, therefore i am excited about this new release!
Symbelmyne - 10.06.2009 at 09:50  
Well, another good thing to wait for. Hell Yeah!.
JD - 17.06.2009 at 12:16  
Am still waiting
Andresopeth - 17.06.2009 at 16:48  
Finally, it has been a long wait! but totally worth, i'm sure
H-metal - 18.06.2009 at 02:01  
Another good news. I'll grab it for sure.
