OPETH Reveals New Track “Width Of A Circle”

OPETH is peerless. Since 1990, the Swedes have eclipsed convention, defiantly crushed the odds, and, most importantly, crafted thirteen stunningly beautiful, intrinsically intense albums to become one of the biggest progressive rock/metal bands on the planet… And they’re only getting better, even after selling more than two million records and hitting the #1 in the German album charts with their album Sorceress in 2016. Now readying for a North American tour with Mastodon in April and May of this year, the band around unmatched frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt announces the release of In Cauda Venenum (Extended Edition) for May 13th. This release, available on digipak, contains the English and Swedish versions of OPETH’s latest album In Cauda Venenum with new illustrations by internationally renowned Travis Smith in the booklet as well as a third CD featuring three unreleased bonus tracks, both in English and Swedish: “The Mob” / “Pöbeln”“Width Of A Circle” / “Cirkelns Riktning”“Freedom & Tyranny” / “Frihet & Tyranni” In Cauda Venenum (Extended Edition) is now available for preorder. Additionally, the album’s limited Connoisseur Edition vinyl boxset which includes the same bonus tracks but remastered by Mikael Åkerfeldt specifically for vinyl, will be available in the North American retail stores for the first time on May 13th. Both album editions will also be available at the band’s merch table on the upcoming North American tour.
