Bad news for those of us who were pretty excited to hear this thing... it seems the release date for Opeth's highly-anticipated new album "Pale Communion has been bumped forward to August 26th.
The album was due to come out next month, but it seems they've run into some issues. Here's the press release:
"Roadrunner Records group Opeth has announced that the release of their highly anticipated eleventh studio album, “PALE COMMUNION” has been reslated for AUGUST 26TH.
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,” commented Opeth frontman, 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."
Well that kinda sucks. Good news has certainly abounded for me today.
