Opeth's New Album Release Pushed Back
"Many of you have heard the rumors already and we can now confirm that the release of 'Pale Communion' has indeed been pushed back to late August," said Opeth frontman, Mikael Åkerfeldt, in a statement.
"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."
Åkerfeldt produced the album and it was mixed by Porcupine Tree frontman/guitarist Steven Wilson. The band will be offering fans an instant download of their first single "Cusp of Eternity" and a second track on July 15th when they pre-order the album via iTunes.
