Mastodon was scheduled to enter an Atlanta, Georgia recording studio today to commence recording for the follow-up to their 2014 album, Once More 'Round The Sun. In a recent interview with the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Mastodon's Troy Sanders (bass, vocals) had the following to say:

"We've been working on it for the bulk of this year. We kind of dedicated 2016 to writing a record. We go into the studio in October and plan to have a new record out and on the shelves in early 2017.

"We're going to record it in the Atlanta area, so we'll get to go home and sleep in our own beds at night. Basically, we are going to play [Project Pabst Atlanta on] October 1, then the next day we being recording and we will be holed up at an Atlanta studio for the month of October.

"We're excited because we've done lots of touring over the past few years. It's that refreshing cycle of write, record, tour, tour, tour, take a break, write, record, tour, tour, tour. This is one of the many healthy transitions that we do as a band to keep our momentum going. We're excited about recording because we haven't recorded a record in over two years. Positive vibes are in the house."
