Mastodon and Opeth will tour North America in 2012.

Heavy metal giants Mastodon and Opeth have announced a run of co-headlining tour dates in 2012. They’ll start in America’s Other Portland (we love you Maine!), loop down South and back up the West Coast before coming full circle in the middle of May. Throughout the tour, they’ll swap headlining honors, with Ghost providing support for the entire run.

Fan presale begins at 3pm local venue time on Mastodon’s website, and tickets go on sale Feb. 3rd or 4th depending on your city.
