Metal must keep you young. It seems like the heavier acts are willing to head out on the road much more often, releasing new material decades after their debuts. Opeth are living proof of that, 30 years on, and they are getting ready to tour yet again behind their upcoming album In Cauda Venenum.

Opeth’s maestro Mikael Åkerfeldt shared how he prepares to tour in the band’s third decade:

“Right now, I’m at home practicing. Learning new songs and re-learning older songs. It’s funny how our music lies dormant in the muscle memory. There are songs I haven’t played for years, and there still there somehow,” he said, according to Consequence of Sound. “I put together the skeleton of a setlist and looking at it there’s some niceties in there. I hope. Hard to tell really. Touring in North America is always a treat. We all collectively look forward to it. Hope you are, too!”

Enthusiastic fans can hear what Åkerfeldt cooked up starting on February 13 at Cleveland’s Agora Ballroom. The band heads northwest toward shows at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre and Detroit’s Royal Oak. A few Canadian shows precede a two-night stand at the Apollo Theater. The band will kick around the Midwest and South until March finds them on West Coast for a close-out show at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium.

They’ll be joined by fellow heavy metal Swedes, Graveyard, who will be providing tour support. Tickets go on sale October 4; take a look at the dates below.
