Catch Fire have revealed details of their new record! Karma Owes Me A Lifetime Of Happiness is set for release on November 16 through Rude Records!
Drummer Ash Wain explains; “We started writing back in the July of 2017, just because myself and Miles (vocals) are always excited to see what we come up with in the moment. We had no intention to write an album, but months later, Rude Records proposed a full length opportunity where we could put these new songs into context.
KOMALOH is a concept album, dealing with a personification of the notion of Karma, or more importantly, its absence. I have always struggled to believe in this idea that what goes around comes around, because for the most part all I see are bad things happening to good people. It’s a nice idea on paper, and I think that more than anything, it’s a way for people to deal with what comes next after we’re gone. But I’ll believe it when I see it”
The band have also revealed two new singles in Malignance and Petrifaction! Wain says of Malignance; “Malignance is one my favourite songs from the record. It’s one of the most progressive, intricate, and interesting songs musically and lyrically, which is why it had to be a single. Lyrically, this song deals with the idea of being on cloud nine, and how through Karma and being a good person, I feel I’ve earned a place there, but there’s no space for me. Seemingly everyone else is more deserving”

Of Petrifaction he adds; “Petrifaction was the first track we wrote for Karma Owes Me a Lifetime of Happiness, so it set the precedent for the record, stylistically. When Miles (vocals) played the opening riff, the rest of the song wrote itself really, and it fell into place quite naturally. We loved the swung feel, the grungy vibes, and we couldn’t wait to write more. Petrifaction’s lyrics specifically, are an attempt to reach out to Karma, as if I’ve been forgotten about, to ask why I am bereft of the good I am owed. It also hyperbolises the idea of feeling that everything that I do, goes wrong”
