Sweden's Opeth will be returning to North America for another headlining tour beginning next month.

The trek, which is tentatively scheduled to kick off on January 18 and run through the end of February, will feature Portugal's Moonspell in the opening slot and another, as-yet-announced act as direct support (previously scheduled support band Nevermore have since dropped off the bill).

So far, only one date has been announced via Ticketmaster: January 28 at Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona. The rest of the cities and dates are expected to be confirmed by the end of the week.

As previously reported, OPETH's first-ever live DVD, "Lamentations - Live At Shepherds Bush Empire", is scheduled to receive a U.S. release on February 24. The disc, which was recorded September 25 in London, contains the band's mellow and heavy set with a running time of approximately an hour each, as well as a unique 65-minute documentary about the group with in-depth focus on the recording of "Deliverance" and "Damnation". "Lamentations…", which was mixed by "Deliverance" mixer and co-producer Andy Sneap, also includes exclusive interviews with the band and producer.
