Sweden's OPETH have posted the following update at their official web site:
"OPETH are confirmed to play the annual Sweden Rock festival in Karlshamn/Sölvesborg in July 2004. The festival will be one of very few FESTIVAL appearances during 2004 as the band will be in resting/writing and eventually recording mode. Sweden Rock is headlined by the newly reformed, Halford-fronted JUDAS PRIEST among others.
"We have a new section on the official site dedicated to YOUR pictures, artwork etc. Due to numerous people showing the guys their OPETH tattoos, we also have a section where we flaunt YOUR tattoos on the official site. Please send them in (jpegs) along with your names and maybe a short story on why you decided to get this ink done. Also…have you met OPETH and got some pictures taken with them? Send 'em in an' we'll put 'em up!” Reach us at: [email protected]
"Rumour say that the Jordan/Amman gig has been rescheduled to take place on March 12, 2004! We will confirm this as soon as possible!
"The upcoming USA tour will feature support from American band DEVILDRIVER as well as Portuguese legends MOONSPELL.
"[Drummer] Martin Lopez is now in a much better state. As expected, the doctor's ordered a few weeks of relaxation due to overload of stress!"
