Roadrunner Records retro rock group Opeth has announced details about a return to North America for a coast-to-coast co-headline run with In Flames.

The nationwide trek, which will also feature support from Red Fang, is set to get underway on December 3rd at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago, IL and traverse North America through the end of the month.

“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."
