Mastodon Announce November Studio Entrance
Atlanta-based metallers Mastodon have officially announced that they'll be entering the studio in November and hopefully have the new album wrapped up by 2014. In the latest Facebook posting, the group stated: "Mastodon has been busy jamming everyday writing and arranging the next studio album. We have quite a few songs and ideas that are taking some time to nail down what we think will make it to the next full length. There will be no more touring this year, we will hit the studio in November to hopefully finish by the end of year." As previously reported, the band was looking to enter the studio in September, so the current date doesn't come as too far off. The four-piece also noted having around 30 new tracks ready for a tentative spring release; however, no new info regarding the release date has been revealed. When it comes to the sound of "The Hunter" follow-up, guitarist Bill Kelliher said that there's "a lot of rock going on," with musical influences varying from grunge legends Alice in Chains to nu metal veterans Deftones. "We're always trying to surprise ourselves and write something that's new and fresh," Kelliher explained. "It's definitely got the elements of 'The Hunter' in there, but also [of] 'Remission' and some heavier stuff." "The Hunter" saw its release in September 2011 via Reprise Records as the fifth studio effort in Mastodon opus.
