Opeth’s Tour Manager Says the Band’s New Album Will “Probably” Come out in September

Opeth have announced a bunch of European tour dates for the fall; dates, the band said, that were “in support of their forthcoming new studio album.” Those concerts will take place in November, so fans have naturally begun to assume that said forthcoming new studio album would probably be released in or around that month.

And, hey, September is around that month! Which may be when the album is, indeed, dropping. It appears that Opeth’s tour manager, Jasper Schurrmans Stekhoven, told someone on Facebook that the album would be released in “September probably,” and that someone took a screen cap and blew up Jasper’s spot on Reddit:

Who, I wonder, are the four people that reacted via the crying emoji? Are they that impatient for a new Opeth record that they can’t wait a few more months? Or do they simply loathe Opeth and dread the record’s impending release?

While you ponder that, we’ll stay glued to the interwebs for more updates. Europeans and those of means to travel to Europe, here are those upcoming Opeth tour dates:
