The new Mastodon album is on its way! In fact, if the timeline drummer Brann Dailor gave us during this exclusive interview remains correct, Mastodon have officially finished recording their sixth studio album. Along with that bit of news, Dailor went deep into what fans can expect from the highly anticipated full-length and offered a lot more insight on both the band and himself.
On Thanksgiving Day, Mastodon took to their Facebook page to advertise a new t-shirt. The shirt reads 'Happy Thanksgiving' and portrays a pilgrim holding a gun to a Native American woman's head while she holds a cooked turkey on a platter. Although the shirt provides social commentary on the very real massacre of Native Americans surrounding the first celebration of Thanksgiving, Mastodon have come under fire in response to the shirt's release.
Nearly two years ago, Mastodon invaded London's O2 Academy to finish off a world tour. The band's sold-out performance lured in a great mass of metal fans, who erupted for the Southern metallers from beginning to end. Thankfully, those unable to attend will be able to experience the show this holiday season, as Mastodon will unveil the audio and video editions of the gig digitally on Dec. 10.
There's been a mysterious and exciting vibe revolving around the new project launched by Soulfly's Max Cavalera, the Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Mastodon's Troy Sanders and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. The new band has been dubbed Killer Be Killed, and the group have finally released some juicy details on their 2014 debut album.
