Last month, Opeth (opens in new tab) announced that they’d head out on tour in support of their new album later this year.
The Swedish outfit didn’t give out any other details at the time – but today they’ve revealed the album title, tracklist and cover art for the follow-up to 2016’s Sorceress (opens in new tab).
The record is titled In Cauda Venenum and it’ll be released this autumn on a date still to be finalised through Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
In Cauda Venenum was recorded in 2018 at Stockholm's Park Studios and will launch in two different versions: One in English and the other in Swedish.
Opeth have also added further dates to their winter tour. Find them below along with the In Cauda Venenum tracklist and artwork.
In an interview with Face Culture last year, guitarist Fredrik Akesson hinted at the direction of the new material, saying: “Compared to the last three albums, I would say this album is more complex, more energetic and I think it’s gonna be something.”
Speaking in 2017, vocalist and guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt said he wanted the follow-up to Sorceress to be “something twisted”.
