‘Sentient’ is the first track the band – which includes Mastodon singer/bassist Troy Sanders, QOTSA guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, At the Drive-In drummer Tony Hajjar, and multi-instrumentalist Mike Zarin – have posted from their forthcoming LP – ‘Echolocation’. You can listen to it below.
The album is out on January 6 via Rise/Black Dune. The 12 track record follows their recent self-titled EP, which came out in July.
The full tracklisting for Echolocation’ is as follows:
Hajjar and Zarin have worked together on a string of projects over the past seven years. The duo have scored several film trailers, as well as the 2013 video game Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
“The thought behind this band is to combine what most of us know from many years of being in touring/recording entities and our love of scoring,” Hajjar recently said, adding: “Our goal is to be able to do more of this within this project.”
The band’s members are all actively involved in other projects. Mastodon released their last album ‘Once More ‘Round the Sun’ in 2014, QOTSA’s Van Leeuwen recently toured with Iggy Pop and Josh Homme in support of their album ‘Post Pop Depression’, and Hajjar was on the road with At The Drive-In as part of their reunion tour.
