Official press release:
Swedish experimental heavy-rock pioneers Opeth has announced they will be releasing their highly-anticipated album, Sorceress, on limited edition pink vinyl with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Gilda’s Club NYC.

The mission of Gilda’s Club NYC is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families. A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely isolating experience which triggers many emotions including fear, anger, depression and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. Currently more than 4,200 men, women, teens and children attend free support groups, educational lectures and workshops at the West Village townhouse or at hospital partners around NYC. More than 55 percent of their members have a cancer diagnosis, and the remaining are their loved ones – their children, partners, relatives or friends. At Gilda’s Club NYC, they believe no one should face cancer alone.
Today’s news comes on the heels of the band’s recent reveal of details surrounding the release of their new album Sorceress, and the debut of their first video blog, studio report, which can be viewed here.
