Sweden's finest Prog Masters Opeth have announced a UK tour this October in support of their upcoming eleventh studio album. 'Pale Communion' is due for release through Roadrunner Records on the 24th August 2014. The album was produced by Opeth singer Mikael Akerfeldt and mixed by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson and is available in for pre-order here. Fans can also check out a brand new track titled 'Cusp Of Eternity' over on Vimeo.
Akerfeldt was recently interviewed by VICE'S Noisey revealing details about the upcoming album stating:
"(Opeth's last album, 2011's) 'Heritage' was somewhat deliberately fucked up all over the place because I love fucked-up-all-over-the-place-type music, but I wanted to do something more melodic with this album, so there's stronger vocal melodies and more melodies overall for this album. I was pretty consistent with that frame of mind throughout the writing process, so at least I had a plan with this album, and I normally don't, to be honest."
