I’ve been pretty stoked on Katatonia since their last record Night Is The New Day. Yes, I was a bit late to the party. It seems like it’s been too long since we’ve heard from them, so I’ve been ready for new Katatonia for a while, and fortunately they’re back with an upcoming record titled Dead End Kings this August. The first taste of the new record came in today in the form of a lyric video for ‘Dead Letters,’ and it certainly fills the void. The album’s artwork is just excellent, and that Tool-inspired guitar groove — coupled with Jonas Renkse’s melancholic vocals — bodes well for the rest of the album.

You can hear the new song in the video above, and a free download has been made available at this location. Dead End Kings is due out August 28th on Peaceville Records.
