The band has revealed two track titles from the forthcoming, as yet-yet untitled new record and they are 'Blasteroids' and 'All the Heavy Lifting,' so there is a little info to satiate your metal appetite. Mastodon's latest and greatest is expected sometime later this year.
The band is also planning to embark on a new and different approach to recording and you can keep up with all the Mastodon studio happenings by going here.
One the quartet wraps the recording sessions in their native city, they will spend their summer in Europe playing festivals. Oh, to be a rock star.
The Mastodonians will get their grunge on on July 30th when they play a one-off gig at The Gorge in Seattle on July 30th with Soundgarden, Queens Of The Stone Age and Meat Puppets.
Given all the superlative critical accolades garnered by 'Crack the Skye,' anticipation for a new Mastodon record burns at a fevered pitch. Noisecreep is sure the band won't disappoint.
