OPETH’s forthcoming album, follows their 2016 release, Sorceress, which garnered high praise from fans and critics around the world, and featured standout tracks like Sorceress, Will o the Wisp, Era and The Wilde Flowers. The band has toured extensively over the last several years in support, including a riveting performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO that was recorded and released in 2018 as a live album and blu-ray, Garden of the Titans, and beautifully captures the intensity and excitement of the tour.
