Mastodon, Opeth Announce Co-Headlining Tour Dates

Mastodon, Opeth Announce Co-Headlining Tour Dates

One of the most talked-about tours so far this year has been one that wasn't even officially announced -- until today.

Mastodon and Opeth have confirmed dates for a co-headlining tour that will see them supported by Sweden's Ghost. Dates can be found below.

"We're touring North America together with Mastodon soon. Nice!," proclaimed Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt. "One of the very few metal bands of today that I genuinely like. Good people too! Ghost are coming with us as well, and they are one of the hottest new bands to come out of Sweden in recent years, and I dig them too. I sound like an old fart, don't I? Well, I am.”

He continued, "Yet, am I right in thinking that this tour, this line up, is pretty decent? Would you all agree? Not complete shit, is it? Hope to see y'all out there! What are we playing? Not sure yet, but considering the company, maybe we'll have to pull out the big guns from time to time. In order to keep up, I mean."

Both bands are still on tour in support of excellent 2011 releases. Opeth released Heritage last September just two weeks before Mastodon released The Hunter. Both albums landed in the Top 5 in our list of the 50 best albums of 2011.
