Swedish progressive metal band Opeth have announced that their 11th studio album, Pale Communion, has been delayed from its June 17th release date and has been pushed back over two months, with a new release date of August 26th. As a result, the lead single “Cusp Of Eternity” will come out June 3rd, the day of the new pre-order opportunity.
Frontman Mikael Akerfeldt explains:
Many of you have heard the rumours already and we can now confirm that the release of ‘Pale Communion’ has indeed been pushed back to late August. Several circumstances prevented the band from delivering essential tools to Roadrunner in time which are needed to set up the album release properly and release schedule conflicts made us mutually decide on August instead of June.
The new album was produced by Akerfeldt and mixed by longtime collaborator/fellow Storm Corrosion member Steven Wilson. It will be the followup to 2011’s Heritage.
