Masters of melancholia Katatonia have released a second single and video from their forthcoming album, Sky Void of Stars, which will be out on January 20 via Napalm Records. The track is called "Austerity" and you can check it out below. About the track, the band said in a statement,“We hereby present you our new single and the opening track of Sky Void of Stars – 'Austerity.' Energetic and dark, stern and disenchanted. Enjoy.” Need I say anymore? Didn't think so! You can check the video out below.
Katatonia announced Sky Void of Stars back in October along with the first single from the album "Atrium," which is sure to pleasure anyone and everyone looking for a darker day at the moment.The band also elaborated further on the new LP, recently.
“Our 12th album, Sky Void of Stars, is a dynamic journey through vibrant darkness. Born out of yearning for what was lost and not found, the very peripheries of the unreachable, but composed and condensed into human form and presented as sounds and words true to the Katatonia signum. No stars here, just violent rain.”
