The Roundhouse Tapes, the long awaited new DVD from Opeth is released on Peaceville Records on October 27th (UK – November 10th, USA – November 11th).

The DVD will be premiered on November 4th with a special screening at the Prince Charles Cinema in London.

The Roundhouse Tapes contains a critically acclaimed Opeth performance recorded at The Roundhouse, London in 2006. Described by Rocksound as ‘a show of spectacular greatness in this legendary venue … an amazing performance by one of Europe’s premier epic metal bands’ the DVD perfectly captures the band in scintillating form playing a selection of classics from throughout their career.

A mini-site featuring a trailer for the DVD, info on the release, downloads and more is now online at www.peaceville.com/opeth/theroundhousetapes. The site also offers a free mp3 download of the track ‘Bleak’ to anyone who signs up to the mailing list.
