    Ivar Bjørnson, Enslaved's songwriter and guitarist comments: "I am stoked that we are going out with Opeth. We have been admirers of Opeth's work for years, specially the direction of their newer works. This is great news for us to take back to our loyal fans and friends in North America at this point; the reception for our newest album "Vertebrae" has been fantastic and unforgettable. We can't wait to present the songs live, we promise you won't be let down! Finally we wish to express our sincere gratitude to Opeth for giving us this opportunity."

    That's 2008. The above info may not be confirmed yet, but you know how it goes with these announcements...


    Oh, and Mike & Gang, it would be awesome if you skipped Worcester this time around. Come up to Lowell, MA or even Manchester, NH. I won't even bother asking about Maine, though...

    So I decided I am gonna have to make the Enslave/Opeth show in NY on 5/26. Never been to NYC, but man I am gonna be getting crazy for this trek. I am going to be in town in Maryland from Utah for the MDF fest that week.

    Anyone by chance willing to help me with a ride to New York on the way back up north from the MDF 09 fest?
    I aint missing Opeth and Enslaved. This is going to be one crazy fucking week.

    I was bummed because I thought it might be in the fall when I'm off in some small college town, then I was excited when I saw it was in the spring, then more excited when I saw enslaved....then bummed again because there's no Dallas show :(
