Katatonia is currently set to release their upcoming album "Night is the New Day" on November 2nd in Europe and November 10th in the U.S. through Peaceville Records. Katatonia has also issued the following recording update:

"Vocals... what about them? Well, yeah... they have to be there. Even though I had done much of the vocal parts/ideas already on the demos, I couldn't imagine the extent of what was about to come. Starting out, I was feeling better than I thought, since I had problems with my throat earlier during the recording. It wasn't a cold as I first expected, I have no idea what it was/is, but it has affected me in some ways.

"I keep singing, it's what I do, apparently. I think it sounds good, but it feels weird at times (age?). More tracks nailed and listening back, I realize that I've never sung this MUCH on an album before. Not that I'm singing ALL THE TIME (don't worry), but the vocals are much more demanding. I hope it is because the singing is better, and not because my throat is worse. Anyway, I'm kinda confident.

"After a few breaks in the recording to play some festival gigs (Portugal, Germany and the UK) I went back down the rathole to nail the last few songs. My voice was already tired from the studio session, and even more tired from the gigs and I was really worried, but behind the microphone everything fell into place for that one last session. I've done my part... soon it is your part, folks! Because the mixdown is already well under way, we've currently nailed 5 songs out of 12 and we're continuing to nail 1 song per day, so on September 1st, the album is going to be completed. No more rathole, we're free to go. It's hard to believe it's true. It looks like the mini-site is gonna open on September 7th or 11th with the final tracklist, audio snippets and more."
