Hardcore Opeth fans are not having a good week.
On Tuesday, they were supposed to release a new single on iTunes, and that never happened.
There’s a reason why.
Pale Communion won’t come out June 17 now. Instead, it will be in stores the day after my birthday.
That’s August 26.
“Many of you have heard the rumors already and we can now confirm that the release of Pale Communion has indeed been pushed back to late August,” says Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt.
“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.”
Pale Communion was produced by Åkerfeldt and mixed by longtime collaborator and Porcupine Tree frontman/guitarist Steven Wilson.
