Opeth have confirmed the release of their eleventh album – Pale Communion will become available for pre-order next week.
The eight-track record has been mixed by Steven Wilson and will be preceded by the single Cusp Of Eternity, which is to be offered as an instant download with pre-orders.
The follow-up to 2011’s Heritage will be launched in June – mainman Mikael Akerfeldt has said it features many more melodies than their last outing.
He recently told Noisey: “Heritage was deliberately fucked up all over the place, because I love fucked-up-all-over-the-place music. But I wanted to do something more melodic with this album.”
The band are also working on a book about their 25-year history. Publishers Rocket 88 have invited fans to send in their own pictures for use in the title via email@example.com.
