There has been quite a buzz about the upcoming Opeth release, but just when the release was getting nearer, Roadrunner Records has pushed the date by more than two months! In an official press release, Opeth has announced that the release of this highly anticipated eleventh studio album, ‘Pale Communion’ has been reslated for August 26th.
This is what frontman Mikael Akerfeldt had to say:
“Many of you have heard the rumours already and we can now confirm that the release of ‘Pale Communion’ has indeed been pushed back to late August. 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.”
This is what the album cover apparently looks like. Whether this is a fake image that’s been leaked or not, we don’t know for sure.
