Mastodon have revealed the first song from their new album. Click above to hear ‘High Road’ now.
‘High Road’ will feature on the album ‘Once More Round The Sun’, which is due for release later this year. The song is the first new material from the US metal band since they released ‘The Hunter’ in 2011.
‘Once More Around The Sun’ 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 this summer.
Speaking about the album earlier this year, frontman Troy Sanders described the forthcoming album as “pure, authentic Mastodon”. 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.
Late last year (2013), Mastodon announced that they have have helped to make their very own craft ale. Black Tongue, which is named after the opening track on the band’s 2011 album ‘The Hunter’, was co-created by the UK’s Signature Brew company, who last year made a beer with Frank Turner.
