Opeth Announce New Studio Album 'Sorceress'


(Prog) Opeth have signed a deal with Nuclear Blast to release their 12th album entitled Sorceress. The follow-up to 2014's Pale Communion is set to launch in late 2016 - and frontman Mikael Akerfeldt says he's looking forward to a "fruitful relationship" with the label.

He says in a statement: "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." Read more here.
