Opeth have announced a 21-date North American tour for later this year.

The shows have been scheduled around their upcoming 12th album entitled Sorceress which is set to arrive later this year. Support will be provided by The Sword.

The run of shows will kick off in Pittsburgh on September 29 and wrap up in Vancouver on October 26 – a few weeks before they return to Europe for a winter tour. The new dates can be found below in bold.

Opeth recently signed a deal with Nuclear Blast for the follow-up to 2014’s Pale Communion.

Mainman Mikael Akerfeldt said: “We’re happy to confirm that we have indeed signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment and will be putting out our 12th studio album Sorceress via our own imprint, Moderbolaget Records.

“The decision was made in Markus Staiger’s – Nuclear Blast kingpin – ridiculously potent Porsche going at 150mph somewhere in the south of Germany.

“We’re happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”

Tickets for the North American shows go on general sale on June 24 at 10am local time.
