Swedish metal band Opeth have announced some Australian tour dates this December. The band will be touring on their latest album Heritage, which should be released soon.
The album was produced by vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt and was recorded earlier this year at Atlantis studios (formerly Metronome studios) in Stockholm. Mixing was handled by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and Åkerfeldt. Longtime collaborator Travis Smith also worked with Åkerfeldt to create, design and execute the album’s artwork.
Opeth had rumoured to play on the Big Day Out 2012 line-up.
