Watain Announces More Headlining Tour Dates

Swedish black metal legion Watain -- which is currently waging Satanic rituals upon the masses on the inaugural Decibel Magazine Tour alongside Behemoth, The Devil’s Blood and In Solitude -- today announced additional headlining dates that will include stops in Poughkeepsie, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, Joliet, Illinois, Columbus, Ohio, and Detroit, Michigan.

Additionally, the band will take part in an in-store appearance tomorrow, April 25th at Dark Realm Records in Downey, California prior to a performance at the House of Blues in Hollywood. More info available here.

Following the trek, Watain will unleash the previously announced new DVD, "Opus Diaboli." The production commemorates the band’s 13 years of chaos by providing a visual and audio documentation of Watain's ceremonial anniversary concert performance in Stockholm and the long years of physical, intellectual, and spiritual work leading up to it. Check out the first official trailer below. "Opus Diaboli" marks the the first release on the band’s own label His Master’s Noise, a name originating from Bathory who had it in mind for the band's own label back in the early 1980s. "Opus Diaboli" will be unleashed in North America on June 5th, 2012.
