Listen to New MASTODON Track “High Road”

Mastodon release video for "High Road"

It seems that the world of Internet did the deed and somehow a song from the Mastodon’s upcoming album Once More Round The Sun was uploaded online. You can listen to it below.

Mastodon‘s Troy Sanders recently talked with Paste Magazine about the band’s upcoming studio album titled Once More Round the Sun. The album’s release date is not known yet, but it is expected to be released in the second half of the year. Few excerpts from the mentioned interview can be read below.

Speaking about the creative process, Sanders commented: “The idea was generated before we recorded the title track on the record, but the title was thought up many months ago. After we finished the two-year touring cycle on our last record, The Hunter, we were kind of gearing up to go back to our rehearsal space in Atlanta. And we were starting the effort, the time, the blood, the energy, the months of driving, the recording and the long process between recording and the release day.

On comparisons with previous album The Hunter: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.
