Northern hyper-blasters, KATAKLYSM, have just been confirmed as direct support to SHADOWS FALL this April! Also appearing on the tour are THE SHOWDOWN, ARSIS and DROID. Lead singer Maurizio Iacono had this to say about the bands hectic schedule in support of their upcoming release, “Prevail”:

"Well I guess our break time is over. Today we will be having a listening session of our new album ‘Prevail’ for the media and our friends in Hollywood, then we fly off to Australia for our first ever tour there! We are planning a massive touring campaign centered around the new album. On our return from Australia we will prepare for a two week run with SHADOWS FALL. It will be cool to tour with those guys again since it’s been a while since we’ve played together. We are also working on a Canadian headlining tour for the end of May with our good friends INTO ETERNITY. As many of you already know as well we will be on the ‘Summer Slaughter Tour’ this June/July. So in true KATAKLYSM road warrior tradition we have set ourselves up for something like 60 to 70 shows from a April to July!

"We will be premiering some new songs on our MySpace next month and we’re thinking of playing two new tracks on the SHADOWS FALL run! We are very proud of ‘Prevail’ and the comments from those who’ve heard it so far have been OUTSTANDING! We can’t wait to see all you crazy fucks out there in the pit with fists in the air! See you soon!”

KATAKLYSM recently shot a video for the track “Taking the World by Storm” with director David Brodsky (THE RED CHORD, GWAR, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD).

The cover artwork for "Prevail" is now online. The band decided to "immortalize" the character that was featured on the cover of their last CD, "In the Arms of Devastation," and have him re-appear as the main character — dubbed "The Heartbeast" — on "Prevail."

"Prevail" was mixed at AudioHammer Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Jason Suecof and is scheduled for release via Nuclear Blast Records on May 23 (Europe) and May 27 (North America). The CD will feature guest solo appearances by Pat O'Brien (CANNIBAL CORPSE), Dave Linsk (OVERKILL) and producer and guitar shredder Jason Suecof himself. The band promises "a monstrous album that will pummel you from start to finish."
