Katatonia has released a lyric video for the reworked version of "The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here," taken from the group's impending "Dethroned and Uncrowned" album.

The song originally appeared on Katatonia's 2012 release "Dead End Kings" (reviewed here), which has been reimagined on "Dethroned and Uncrowned."

The new version of the album will release September 10th in North America and will mark the band's first release on Kscope - sister label to Katatonia's longtime home Peaceville Records - to celebrate the label's fifth anniversary.

"Dethroned and Uncrowned" can be pre-ordered now at this locaiton. Guitarist and founding member Anders Nyström commented:

"The synopsis is simple and album title won't lie; the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! Instead, we'll place the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album.

"Think of the album like a person's face in the hands of a surgeon, whose appearance is gonna change, but it's still the same person behind that face and we guess an important factor, in this case, would be that the surgeon itself is obviously Katatonia, not a stranger! If there's one album in our repertoire that's suited for a thing like this, it's Dead End Kings."

The album was funded by a successful PledgeMusic campaign that helped make the recording possible. You can also catch Katatonia live in North America with Tesseract and Intronaut this fall. Details are available over here.
