Mastodon Reveal New Song 'High Road'
Earlier this month, Mastodon announced details of their new album, "Once More Around the Sun," their first full-length effort since 2011's "The Hunter." Today, "High Road," the first single off the record, has surfaced online.

As Consequence of Sound notes, the album was recorded in Franklin, Tennessee with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Rush, Alice in Chains). Troy Sanders described the end result as 60-or-so minutes of "pure, authentic Mastodon."

He continued, "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."

In support of the upcoming record, which is set for a June release via Warner Bros. Records, the band will be on the road through mid-July. See their current schedule below.
