Opeth Announces Free Record Store Day Acoustic Show


Opeth will be doing a free acoustic performance and signing this Saturday, April 20, 2013 (which is also Record Store Day) at Newbury Comics in Leominster, MA at 3:00 PM.

The band’s North American tour in support of latest album, “Heritage,” kicks off this Thursday, April 18, 2013 and runs through May 26, 2013. Bassist Martin Mendez says of the upcoming dates:

“We’re doing a different kind of tour than last time. Last time some of the fans were disappointed because we were really promoting the last record and we didn’t do any of the really heavy songs. But this time we are doing is mish-mash of everything. I hope — I think it will be appreciated.”

In related news, Opeth also recently announced the band is writing the follow-up album to “Heritage.”
