OPETH Premiere New Song, "The Wilde Flowers"

OPETH have premiered a new song called “The Wilde Flowers” from their highly anticipated, 12th studio album, Sorceress. The album is scheduled for release on September 30th via the band’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Listen to "The Wilde Flowers" below! 

 

Speaking with Metal Hammer, vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt says “This was the first song I wrote for this album. It’s kind of an OPETH standard, in a way, like from the last two albums. It’s very dynamic. It has a chorus, I guess. Then there’s a big Queen-sounding bit in the middle just before this massive solo… oh, and harps! They’re hidden in the mix but they’re there. The title comes from the band Caravan – they were originally called Wilde Flowers. I always liked those weird spellings.”

OPETH will arrive in North America in only a few short days for a performance at Ozzfest/Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA, which will kick off their worldwide tour in support of Sorceress. Tickets are available for the tour now at http://opeth.com/. Tour dates are listed below.

In addition to the psychedelic, progressive masterpiece “The Wilde Flowers,” OPETH’s monumental new record also features the critically heralded new songs “Will O The Wisp” and “Sorceress.” Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes and Amazon Music will receive an instant download of “The Wilde Flowers,” “Will O The Wisp” and “Sorceress.” Links to pre-orders can be found below.
