Mastodon and Opeth Announce Round Two of Their North American Co-Headlining Tour


Last winter saw Atlanta stoner-metal kings Mastodon and Swedish prog-metal savants Opeth embark on a North American co-headlining tour. And apparently, the trek was just so much damn fun that the two bands have decided to do it all again.

Opeth and Mastodon’s next North American lovefest kicks off this April, though openers, if any, have yet to be announced. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 11th, at 10am local time.

Via Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt:

“We’re excited to come back to North America for the second leg of shows together with our ‘brothers from other mothers’ in Mastodon. And… hello, Canada! It’s been too long, we know! We’ll soon dust off the ole guitars etc. and get in shape for this run. The last tour was quite splendid; the only downside being the restrictions. We don’t know for sure how it’s going to pan out this time around, but we’re hoping for a bit more freedom to move around. Crossing fingers here. See you semi-soon! Signing off from a rainy, gloomy Stockholm.”
