Opeth recently announced their forthcoming album Heritage, due out September 20th on Roadrunner Records. They follow that news by announcing that they will return to North American soil for a seven-week, headline tour which kicks off September 19th in Worcester, Mass. and runs through November 1st in Baltimore, with a couple of dates in Canada.
Opeth will headline the shows, with their fellow Swedish countrymen Katatonia providing the support on all dates.
Opeth will also play a one-off show this weekend as part of the vaunted Bonnaroo Festival outside of Nashville. They band performs on June 10th in what should be a "can't miss" performance.
Heritage sees the band expanding mightily on their progressive influences.
