Opeth Announces 2020 North American Tour In Support of “in Cauda Venenum”


Swedish prog-metal/rock legends OPETH will make their awaited return to North America in 2020 for a winter tour with labelmates GRAVEYARD. This will be the band’s first tour of the U.S.A. and Canada in support of their newly released, critically praised album, “In Cauda Venenum,that is available now via Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast. The dates include two nights at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York and performances at the renowned Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and at the famed Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Tickets will sell fast, beginning 10:00AM Local Time Friday, October 4th at http://www.opeth.com/tour-dates.
OPETH’s chief songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt comments on the tour, Well, after having had the ”In Cauda Venenum” LP released we’re set to start touring in support of it. Right now, I’m at home practicing. Learning new songs and re-learning older songs. It’s funny how our music lies dormant in the muscle memory. There are songs I haven’t played for years, and there still there somehow. I put together the skeleton of a setlist and looking at it there’s some niceties in there. I hope. Hard to tell really. Touring in North America is always a treat. We all collectively look forward to it. Hope you are too!”
OPETH was recently featured on the cover of Decibel Magazine’s October issue. For the November issue, the band partnered with the publication to release an exclusive, unreleased track titled “Cirkeins Riktnin” for their Decibel Flexi Series. Today, the track is streaming at http://bit.ly/2oqJEq5.
OPETH’s long anticipated 13th album, “In Cauda Venenum,arrived this past Friday to an exceptional reaction from fans and critics, earning the band some of the best critiques of their career. Released in both Swedish and English languages, the record features a number of standout tracks like “Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör” / “Heart In Hand” and Svekets Prins” / “Dignity.”
