Mastodon Announce 2014 Headlining U.S. Tour With Gojira and Kvelertak
Yes!!! How awesome is this tour? Mastodon, Gojira and Kvelertak have teamed up to create one of the essential bills of 2014. The trio of acclaimed metal acts are set to invade the U.S. in April and May for a string of dates not to be missed.
Although the tour amounts to only 13 gigs, Mastodon, Gojira and Kvelertak will be traveling coast-to-coast. The three bands will be stopping in major cities across the country, so if you live near a booming metropolis, you’ll likely be able to catch one of these gigs.
Mastodon are currently working on their highly anticipated follow-up to ‘The Hunter,’ which was released to much praise in 2011. “Every Mastodon record seems to have a different flavor,” Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher said in a recent interview. “We don’t want to keep on releasing the same record over and over again. We’ve got to surprise our fans; we’re always moving and growing.”
Gojira are still riding high off 2012′s ‘L’Enfant Sauvage,’ which further established their impressive discography and launched the band into a new realm of success. Kvelertak also achieved success with their most recent full-length, ‘Meir,’ released via Roadrunner Records in 2013.
