Prog rockers OPETH have debuted a brand new single, ‘Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör’ / ‘Heart In Hand’ and announced their latest album, ‘In Cauda Venenum’ will be released 27th September via Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast

Speaking about the single, the band said: “‘Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör’ or ‘Heart in Hand’, as it’s called in English, is one of the first couple of songs I wrote for ‘In Cauda Venenum’. I immediately knew that it would probably be favoured by ”the powers that be,” when talks of future singles for the record would commence. And I was right. I generally leave it up to the label or management to pick the so-called singles. I’m indifferent, as I put an equal amount of dedication into all songs, so it doesn’t matter all that much to me. I guess it’s one of the more straightforward songs on the album, a rather rocking little thing. It’s got one of the ”happy mistakes” in it too. Mendez’s bass broke down in the middle of recording. At the time he played an old Hofner Beatles-esque bass guitar that started humming real bad, but it sounded so good we immediately decided to keep it in there. I’d be putting myself down if I said that noise is the best part of the song, but it’s up there! I like when stuff happens out of your control, and it actually adds to the piece. This is the first full taster of the new OPETH album, and of course I hope you like it. All the songs on the new album are different from each other and therefore equally representable in my view. Enjoy!”
