Swedish technical metal band Meshuggah are set to release their seventh studio album Koloss this March via Nuclear Blast. In support of the LP, they'll kick off a North American tour in late-May featuring Baroness and Decapitated. That tour, dubbed The Ophidian Trek 2012, reaches the House of Blues on May 15th. Livenation and Citi Cardmember presales begin tomorrow (2/2), at 10AM CST. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday (2/3), at 10AM CST.

As mentioned by BBG, Baroness are at work on a new album, due to hit stores later this year via Relapse Records. In other Baroness news, drummer Allen Blickle guested on A Place To Bury Strangers' forthcoming EP Onwards To The Wall, handling the skin bashing duties on "I Lost You" and "Drill It Up."
