Opeth have announced a tour of the UK and Ireland for later this year. The band previously confirmed a run of shows across Europe – now it’s been revealed that they’ll also play in London, Glasgow, Dublin and Bristol around their previously confirmed appearance at Damnation Fest in Leeds.
Opeth vocalist and guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt says: “Well, Skid Row made that album Slave To The Grind (great LP!) and that’s what we all are. The new album is finished and it’s called In Cauda Venenum and of course there’s a tour planned in support of this. The UK is our ‘home away from home’ and we’re coming over for a few shows. I’m very much looking forward to this. We’ll play something old, something new, something horrible and something true.”
Opeth will be joined on the road by special guests The Vintage Caravan.
