Mastodon have finally revealed the album cover for their upcoming album, entitled Once More ‘Round the Sun, along with the tracklist.
Keeping up with their psychedelic ways, the cover features a creature of endless features and colors, like those seen in places far and away from ordinary, day-to-day consciousness, probably making an statement for the music included therein.
In an interview with guitarist Bill Kelliher, the Mastodon member explains this is not a concept album, but it does deal with the past year events surrounding every band-member’s life, hence the album title.
To keep up with the psychedelic flavor, check out the “Audio Visualizer” for the first single, High Road. If you have a thing for mind-altering substances, then you’ll enjoy this cocktail:
Here’s the official tracklist:
1. ‘Tread Lightly’
2. ‘The Motherload’
3. ‘High Road’
4. ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun’
5. ‘Chimes At Midnight’
6. ‘Asleep In The Deep’
7. ‘Feast Your Eyes’
8. ‘Aunt Lisa’
9. ‘Ember City’
11. ‘Diamond In The Witch House’
The album is due out on June 24, and you and I know Mastodon doesn’t disappoint, so mark your calendars accordingly.
