OPETH have confirmed a headline show for New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on October 1st. General admission pre-sale is live now.

VIP Upgrade packages go on sale Wednesday (March 16th) at 12 noon (CET). If you care for these you can upgrade to VIP through an exclusive link only available at Opeth.com. General on-sale starts this Friday, March 18th, at 12 noon (EST).

OPETH have also set a firm release date for their twenty-five year anniversary commemorative book. Book Of Opeth will be released on April 15th via Rocket 88 Publishers based in the UK, and is only available for pre-order HERE. The book contains never before seen photos of the band's early days with full commentary from Mikael Akerfeldt, OPETH original guitar player Peter Lindgren as well as former and current band members. The book spans the gamut of the band's colorful, rich twenty five year career paying close attention to detail from page one.

"There are photos in here I’ve never seen before," says frontman Mikael Akerfeldt. This sumptuously illustrated oral history presents the story of OPETH, from their earliest days until the present, in glorious dark colour. The book is told in the first-person by Mikael, the band, their friends, former members and collaborators and is illustrated throughout with hundreds of previously unseen, rare artworks and memorabilia. It includes early personal, candid, studio and live photographs, and an extensive illustrated discography.

Every copy of the first 4,000 books come with a vinyl pressing with acoustic versions of "Atonement" and "Demon Of The Fall", which will only be available in the Book Of Opeth. The strictly limited edition, all numbered and signed by Mikael also includes three fine art prints by OPETH sleeve designer Travis Smith.

The Book Of Opeth is the first official book to tell the true story of the band, by the band themselves. Mikael, Peter, both Martins, Fredrik, Joakim and former members have searched their memories and photo archives to contribute to this unique piece of work. Illustrated with photographs taken from their earliest days through to the recording of Pale Communion and beyond, this is OPETH as they have never been seen before. Band members cite their influences, recall their first days with the band and offer anecdotes and stories about each other that reveal the dynamics that have made up the band.

The book is sumptuously and lovingly packaged, and comes with otherwise unavailable recordings and images, is a true precious and rare item. Frank, funny, revealing and totally original, the Book Of Opeth tells the story of one of rock’s most important, influential and original bands.

The Signature Edition:

  • The Classic edition with a black-on-black cover 7” record exclusive to the book
  • Limited edition of 500 hand-numbered sets
  • Each set signed and numbered by Mikael Åkerfeldt
  • Also includes three limited edition fine art prints by Travis Smith, hand-numbered to match the book
  • Presented in a clamshell box covered in black cloth with foil detailing
“There are pictures from pre-recording days, before we even had a contract, photos of us recording the first album, rocking out in our rehearsal room, getting our first tattoos; there’s loads of great stuff in here...” - Mikael Åkerfeldt
