Mastodon finishing up new album

Official press release: Atlanta-based heavy rock icons Mastodon are nearing completion of their eagerly anticipated next studio album, which follows their universally-praised 2014 album, Once More 'Round The Sun. Once again, Mastodon has chosen to record with famed producer Brendan O'Brien, who first worked with Mastodon on their 2009 ground-breaking concept album, Crack The Skye. So what can one expect from Mastodon's seventh studio exploration? Well...never ones to repeat, Mastodon embrace the challenge to continually push themselves toward an elevated trajectory with each new release. Their fearless blend of styles, textures and concepts have created a sonic pathway all their own. Each band member contributes their personal genetic footprint into their collective sound that has not only inspired contemporaries but has alighted fans and critics to espouse their appreciation. Mastodon recorded new tracks just outside their home-city of Atlanta while the mixing process will begin in Los Angeles shortly with a view to release the new album in the early part of the New Year. Expect great and loud tricks and treats from Mastodon in 2017.
