Mastodon announce new album 'Once More Round The Sun'
Mastodon have announced details of their new album, Consequence Of Sound reports.

Titled 'Once More Round The Sun', it was recorded in Franklin, Tennessee, with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Alice in Chains) at the helm. No specific release date has been given for it yet but it is expected to be out later this year.

Speaking to Paste, frontman Troy Sanders described the forthcoming album as "pure, authentic Mastodon".

He continued: "We're all over the world as far as themes go but there are a few sprinkles of epic goodness. A lot of people ask us if it kicks off where 'The Hunter' left off. And to a large degree, I suppose yes. We recorded it and took it on the road with us, and then we headed back to our rehearsal space and started working out ideas. I've had a lot of time to ingest this record, and it's solid. It's a large slab of granite. I'm once again completely proud of these guys."

He also revealed that 30 minutes worth of music had been left off the album, which would form a new EP to be released after the LP.
