Katatonia back in studio with new drummer

Katatonia announced they go back to the studio for their 10th album. It will be recorded in Studio Gröndahl in Stockholm with Karl Daniel Lidén as engineer. Drums will be played by new drummer Daniel 'Mojjo' Moilanen.

Vocalist Jonas Renkse comments: ”We first met Mojjo back in 2009 where his band at the time, Engel had joined up with us and Paradise Lost on a UK tour and we soon realized we shared the same musical background and ideals. We stayed in touch over the years and when Daniel Liljekvist quit Katatonia in 2014 we decided to give Mojjo a call. He has now been with us for well over a year, so far only as a live member, but now is the time for him to join the Katatonia album cycle and most importantly - make his own impression on our new material. We can't wait to see what this will lead to. Love him up!”

Mojjo: "From 1993 via 2009 to 2014, from today and onward into future battles. I am thankful, delighted and proud to take part in the next phase of Katatonia and I am looking forward to the journey being as giving as it has been for the last 22 years."

The new album is planned for release in 2016 on Peaceville Records.

More details will follow. Fans of the band can follow the band in the studio via their Facebook page.
