Opeth Announce 2016 North American Tour With The Sword
Opeth shall grace the shores of North America once again this fall. In support of the band’s upcoming album, Sorceress, Opeth will jam their way across North America for a monthlong string of shows with The Sword.
Opeth’s Sorceress is easily one of 2016’s most anticipated recordings, marking the 12th studio album of the legendary Swedish band’s career. It will also be Opeth’s first through their own label, Moderbolget Records, which has teamed up with Nuclear Blast for the release of Sorceress. “The decision was made in Markus Staiger’s (Nuclear Blast kingpin) ridiculously potent Porsche going at 150 mph somewhere in the south of Germany,” says frontman Mikael Akerfeldt. “We’re happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”
Opeth’s ‘Sorceress World Tour’ will kick off with a slot on the first ever "Ozzfest Meets Knotfest" two-day festival on Sept. 24. From there, Opeth will hit Pittsburgh on Sept. 29 and travel until Oct. 26 where they’ll play Vancouver.
