If you’re someone who has been waiting for the followup to The Hunter, well it looks to be your lucky day as Mastodon have laid out plans to put out their sixth full length effort this year. Lined up to produce is none other than Nick Raskulinecz, known for his work with the Hold Steady, Foo Fighters Ghost, and others. No release date has been announced, fans have been told to stay tuned.
Along with the gift of new music, a US tour was announced for this spring. With support from French death metalers Gojira along with Kvelertak, The tour kicks off in Portland at the Roseland Theater at the end of April and concluding May 18th, where the band is the latest edition to the Rock On The Range Festival’s lineup, headlined by Guns N’ Roses, Motorhead and Slayer. Tickets for Mastodon’s tour do not appear to be on sale yet, but you can check Ticketmaster for updates.
