Opeth announce 2020 North American tour in support of new album In Cauda Venenum

Swedish prog-metal auteurs Opeth have notched another strong entry into their already impressive catalog with their latest album, In Cauda Venenum. Already set to tour Europe this fall in support of the new LP, the band has just announced a North American 2020 tour.

Fellow Swedish heavies Graveyard will support the monthlong stateside tour, which kicks off February 3rd at The Agora Ballroom in Cleveland and runs through a March 4th show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Among the shows are two nights at the historic Apollo Theater in New York City.

A thoughtful and throughly cerebral artist, Opeth mastermind Mikael Åkerfeldt gave insight on his preparation for the upcoming shows, offering up far more than the usual hype quote attached to tour announcement press releases:

“Right now, I’m at home practicing. Learning new songs and re-learning older songs. It’s funny how our music lies dormant in the muscle memory. There are songs I haven’t played for years, and there still there somehow. I put together the skeleton of a setlist and looking at it there’s some niceties in there. I hope. Hard to tell really. Touring in North America is always a treat. We all collectively look forward to it. Hope you are, too!”
