The album was the band's most successful to date and cemented the Swede's position as masters of sorrowful metal. Dead End Kings was released on the Peaceville label, the band's home for the past 14 years. In September 2013 the band return with Dethroned and Uncrowned, their first release on Kscope, Peaceville's sister label. Many of the ecstatic reviews the Dead End Kings received commented on the fact that the album marked another step in the band's journey towards a more progressive sound. Dethroned and Uncrowned allows them to explore these elements of the record further as they have reworked the album, creating new moods and textures while still staying truthful to the core of the songs. The album will be available on double LP, download and as 2 disc (CD & DVD-AV) digibook set, which also features a 5.1 surround mix of the album. Tracklist 1. The Parting 2.

        Jonas and Per from Katatonia discuss the making of 'Dead End Kings', OUT NOW on Peaceville Records. A continuation of 2009’s inspired & acclaimed Night is the New Day, Dead End Kings sees Katatonia conjure yet another milestone in audial melancholy & angst. The Katatonia of 2012 is more potent, focused and creatively impactful than ever before. Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström - alongside guitarist Per Eriksson, bassist Niklas Sandin and drummer Daniel Liljekvist – are at the peak of their powers right now, and their brand new studio album Dead End Kings provides incontrovertible evidence of their unstoppable artistic momentum. A rich, adventurous and endlessly evocative masterwork that exhibits all the Swedish quintet’s established traits while absorbing countless fresh ideas into that monumental sonic brew, this is plainly the strongest and most beguiling album in the Katatonia catalogue to date. It also proves that sadness comes in many shades and that no one is safe from its cold allure. “Dead End Kings represents progression and taking things to the next level,” says Renkse. ”The writing was a little more intense and spontaneous for this one. I think that’s the biggest difference. But it was made with the same mindset as the last few albums. It just had a little more fire involved. We don’t want to repeat ourselves. We are still hungry for new music.” Dead End Kings was recorded at Ghost Ward Studios & The City Of Glass. The album was produced by Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse, & mixed by David Castillo. Additionally, Katatonia is joined once again by Frank Default on sampling & atmospherics, plus a special guest appearance by Norwegian vocalist Silje Wergeland of Dutch legends The Gathering/ex-Octavia Sperati. Artwork is supplied by long-time visual collaborator Travis Smith. Tracklist* 1. The Parting 2. The One You Are Looking for is Not Here (with Silje Wergeland) 3. Hypnone 4. The Racing Heart 5. Buildings 6. Leech 7. Ambitions 8. Undo You 9. Lethean 10. First Prayer 11. Dead Letters * Deluxe edition includes two extra bonus tracks "This is intoxicating music from a unique band" Guitarist Magazine "Of course it's excellent." Sputnik Music "Patented sense of melodies which at it's best outdo Simon & Garfunkel" 9/10 Close-Up Magazine (Sweden) "Katatonia have mastered their craft, and never been ones to stick to conventions. A formidable album." 9/10 Sweden Rock Magazine (sweden) "Yet again another stunning body of work from the Swedish kings of pain and sorrow." Metal Hammer (UK) 9/10 "The leading purveyors of pain and dysphoria" Classic Rock Prog “a truly unique sound, a perfect blend of sulking heaviness and shimmering beauty.” OurStage.com “Dead End Kings is a musical opus that is a crowning achievement for a band that has consistently grown over the years. Katatonia are not just a band. They are a force that defines the very musical path that others strive to walk." Bloody-Disgusting.com “the Swedish act’s expertise at plumbing of melancholy in its infinite varieties remains unmatched... these guys are the masters” Outburn Magazine “quintessential Katatonia” Decibel Magazine “a rare combination of elegant craftsmanship and harmonic beauty” Loudwire.com For more information on Dead End Kings, go to the album site at: deadendkings.com
