Opeth and Mastodon Book North American Tour

Opeth and Mastodon will be embarking on a co-headlining tour this spring. The trek kicks off on April 4 in Portland, ME and will come to an end on May 12 in Atlanta, GA. Swedish metallers Ghost are scheduled to accompany the bands on the road.

In a press statement, Opeth frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt remarked, “We’re touring North America together with Mastodon soon. Nice! One of the very few metal bands of today that I genuinely like. Good people too! Ghost are coming with us as well, and they are one of the hottest new bands to come out of Sweden in recent years, and I dig them too. I sound like an old fart, don’t I? Well, I am.”

He continued, “Yet, am I right in thinking that this tour, this lineup, is pretty decent? Would you all agree? Not complete shit, is it? Hope to see y’all out there! What are we playing? Not sure yet, but considering the company, maybe we’ll have to pull out the big guns from time to time. In order to keep up, I mean.”
