Swedish progressive metal titans OPETH have unveiled another brand new song!
With their new album Sorceress set for release next week, the band have now released another song from the record ahead of it’s release. Titled The Wilde Flowers this new single follows the release of Will O The Wisp and the title track which were released earlier this year.
Watch the official lyric video for The Wilde Flowers here:
Speaking about the record, guitarist Fredrik Åkesson tells Distorted Sound, “Well it is not a concept album, but Mikael wrote the lyrics and it feels a bit strange for me to talk about his lyrics you know? [laughs] But I wouldn’t say there’s any direct messages at all, it is kind of a cliché answer but I think everybody can make up their own histories reading the lyrics. I know Mikael spent a lot of time with the lyrics and put a lot of thought into them, I think it reflects stuff in his personal life in a way and there’s some other stuff too.”
Following the release of Sorceress, OPETH will perform at Wembley Arena in London on November 19th. Tickets are available here.
Sorceress is set for release on September 30th via Moderbolaget Records/Nuclear Blast Records. Digital pre-orders are available at iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. Additionally, the record is available in an array of formats & limited editions including a 2CD Digipak, double vinyl (in various colours at 180 gram) and a deluxe edition wooden box set from http://www.nuclearblaststore.co.uk/shop/nuclearblast/products.php?cat=4894 (coloured vinyl & box set) or the OPETH Store: (exclusive silver vinyl).
