Mastodon Hoping to Release Another Full-Length Album Next Year
Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders has been speaking with Full Metal Jackie (via Loudwire) about upcoming record "Once More Round the Sun." As Sanders notes, the band recorded so much extra material for the album, that another Mastodon record may be out as early as next year:

"This is the first time we've had more material than we knew that would make the record going into the studio, but that's a good problem. We had all these songs we had been working on that we all liked and loved. We went into the Rock Falcon Studios in Franklin, Tennessee, and we recorded about 15 songs. Listening back, we found a proper ebb and flow that we felt would make a solid album. It's right around the one hour mark, which we think is a healthy dose of music.

"With the songs that were "left over," we do not view them as B sides. We do not view them as throw away songs, we're in love with those songs just as any songs that made the record. So they will see the light of day, properly. Hopefully sooner than later. I don't know what's going to happen, will we do a winter EP release? Possibly. Halloween? Maybe. Record another half hour of much while we're on tour this summer? And have another full length album to record and release next year? I hope so. So something good will happen to all of this material, just don't know what yet."

"Once More Round the Sun" will be released on June 24th via Warner/Reprise.
