Praying Mantis have announced the release of their 12th studio album, “Katharsis”. The album sees the long-running British rock band steadily progressing from the sonic signatures of their last release, “Gravity”. “Katharsis” features the same line-up that has been featured on the previous two albums, with vocalist Jaycee Cuijpers and drummer Hans in’t Zandt cementing themselves as part of the band’s ongoing legacy. The two have truly provided a new dimension to the writing process and musical performances delivered by the band. Together with founding members Tino and Chris Troy and guitarist Andy Burgess, who has been with the band since 2008, they have been instrumental not only in the writing of the new songs, but in providing a new vision in terms of sound engineering and production. To hear and see the band now, fans will experience both the spirit and energy of the early ’80s together with a technical style that brings the band into the modern era.
