It has already been made public that Sludge Metal legends Mastodon have a brand new album on the way. But as of a few days ago more info was released on this matter via an interview conducted by SimmonsTobias at this year’s edition of Mayhem Festival. One particular quote sticks out on this matter. Check it below along with the full interview and some more goods from Mastodon.
“Before we left for the European tour, which was prior to this, we got into a studio with a producer. We started just putting ideas down on tape, so to speak. We have about 25 to 30 songs that are ready for the new record.
We’re obviously not gonna use all 30 of them, but we’re in a much better place than we’ve ever been as far as being prepared during pre-production for an album.
We’d like to get the record finished by the end of the year and have it out as soon as Christmas and all the holidays are over with—maybe, like, March or April, it would be great to have the new record out and then do a brand new tour on some new music.”
