Opeth Unveil 'Pale Communion' Cover Artwork, Album Due in August
Opeth have officially unveiled the cover artwork of their upcoming record "Pale Communion," due out on August 26 via Roadrunner Records.

The band has once again joined forces with artist Travis Smith, you can check out the final outcome below.

The group has also confirmed that the pre-orders will kick off next Tuesday (June 3). If you pre-order the album, you will receive an instant download of lead single "Cusp of Eternity," as well as the second single due on July 15.

Discussing the new effort, frontman Mikael Akerfeldt described it as possibly the most melodic Opeth release.

"There's definitely more attention to melodies and I wouldn't say it's an easy-listening album at all, but there's more melody than ever before, not just 'Heritage,'" he told Metal Assault. "I'm hoping that people who liked 'Heritage' will like this one too and also fans who liked the old s--t will hopefully like this one as well, and may be some new fans. You never know!"

As reported, the album release was mysteriously pushed back from June to August, causing an uproar among fans due to lack of professionalism from the label.

"Pale Communion" track listing:

01. Eternal Rains Will Come
02. Cusp of Eternity
03. Moon Above, Sun Below
04. Elysian Woes
05. Goblin
06. River
07. Voice of Treason
08. Faith in Others
