Opeth and Mastodon to co-headline fall tour

Opeth and Mastodon tour

Sweden rock/metal legends Opeth will team up with progressive metal veterans Mastodon for a November tour of the United States. Featuring direct support from Zeal & Ardor, the trek's itinerary can be veiwed below.

Opeth vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt comments: "Well, we're about to start up the ole machine again after our longest (involuntary) break ever. We've kept rather silent during all this time. We haven't done much press or public appearances. No streaming shows and of course, no ”real” shows. We've kept to ourselves, biding our time. Coming back to North America will be a treat, even if there are conflicting emotions. We've become used to being out of sight. But playing live is such an integral part of being in this band. We need to get back out there to see if we still have it in us. Stepping out on a stage after all this time will surely be a nerve-wrecking experience, but we count on you to help us out. We'll be traveling with familiar faces however. Together with our friends in Mastodon. But also with new acquaintances, Zeal & Ardor. Going on tour during these times means serious restrictions of course. It will be strange in so many ways. But once we're up there we trust the power of music will take over and make us feel secure. We collectively look forward to this (with a slight touch of pure fear). To wrap this up:  Won't see you in the pub (unfortunately), but we sincerely hope to see you through the limelight. For us, this coming tour is already memorable. Odd!"
