Swedish prog-metal vets Katatonia have announced their eleventh album, City Burials, which follows 2016's The Fall of Hearts and comes out April 24 via Peaceville Records. The first single is "Lacquer," which you can hear below. Here's the band's album announcement:

“In days and nights of black and silver, the dead end king will come. From pieces of broken mirrors there will be a crown bestowed upon his head. In reflections of shattered glass not only the seasons will turn, but also the change disguised by the lapse of time. His mind will have to come to bear the weight of everything that was left behind and forgotten. Archiving the inaccessible. Celebrating the abandoned and mourning the destroyed. The city burials.” Anders Nyström

With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, City Burials stands as Katatonia’s new triumph of deep & enigmatic progressive rock – the fruits of a rejuvenating and profound chapter in the band’s legacy; a catalyst for its creators, with a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an ever-evolving life. Compiled into one of their most important modern works and statements to date, the finely-honed instrumentation provides a multi-textured backdrop with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us through these latest trials of loss and ruin.

Pre-orders launch Friday (1/31).

Katatonia also have a bunch of Europe festivals/shows coming up, and they also play Mexico City's Hell and Heaven Fest in March and they just made their first US show announcement of 2020 today: Psycho Las Vegas. You can see the full Psycho lineup below. All Katatonia dates here.

Related band Bloodbath (who also feature members of Opeth and Paradise Lost) are also touring North America around Maryland Deathfest.
