Limited presale tickets and VIP packages will be available beginning today through WMG with general public on sale starting this Friday, August 15th. According to the press release, everybody is excited to be on tour together:

“We are delighted to return to North America to tour our latest album ‘Pale Communion,’” commented Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt. “This will be the first of two North American Tours and the fact that we are teaming up with our old friends In Flames for this co-headline tour means that we can get to play some large venues and present our new stage show. I am also looking forward to drinking expensive whiskey with Anders on his account!”

In Flames frontman Anders Fridén added, "I met [Opeth guitarist] Mikael [Akerfeldt] for the first time in 1998 during the recording of Opeth's album ‘My Arms, Your Hearse.’ I was working in the studio and we've been friends ever since. Now 16 years more beautiful, we release albums in the same cycle and it's with great honor and pleasure that In Flames share stage with our friends and fellow countrymen in Opeth."
