Good news Opeth fans! In a new interview with Roadrunner Records, Mikael Åkerfeldt was asked about returning to the States in 2013 for a new tour and here was his response: “Yeah, we’re probably returning. We still have a few details to work out, but we were supposed to be in the US in the fall and we didn’t do it, so we’re gonna be in the US in the spring, I think. But it’s not completely settled yet, so I’m not sure—I can’t say 100 percent that we’re gonna be there. But 90 percent sure, we’re going on a North American tour, which will be the last lengthy tour that we do for this record. We’re also doing a few shows down in Australia and Japan and perhaps South America and some summer festivals as well, but generally it’s gonna wind down after May of next year.” HELL YES!
