Opeth and Porcupine Tree Pair

Metal heroes Opeth are pleased to announce North American co-headline dates with progressive superstars Porcupine Tree. Opeth and the 'Tree' will be at The House Of Blues in Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday, July 30th.
Anticipated by fans as one of the “must see” pairings of the year, Opeth will be supporting their recent KOCH Records/MFN release Damnation while Porcupine Tree will be supporting their critically acclaimed Lava Records debut In Absentia.
Opeth is coming off of the smash success of their metal masterpiece Deliverance, which was recorded simultaneously with the more mello-tron sounding Damnation. Damnation was produced, mixed and co-written by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, who contributed both keyboards and guest vocals on the album. Mikael Akerfeldt’s clean and melodic vocals, minus his signature growl, allow the passion and song-structure to come to the forefront, thus showing the softer side to the duality that is Opeth.
