New Mastodon Album Nearly Complete: 'It's in the Finals of Being Mastered'
Mastodon have recently posted a studio update, confirming that their new record is nearly complete and well in the final mastering stages.

"Dearest Mastodon fans, after many hours in the studio riffing out, we are excited to announce our new album is almost complete," the band stated via Facebook. "It is in the finals of being mastered. We are gearing up for our US tour with Gojira and Kvelertak next month! Looking forward to seeing you all out there on the High Road in May!"

In related news, the new album's title was reportedly unveiled as "Once More Round the Sun." Although no official confirmation was issued, a recentĀ Paste Magazine interview refers to the record with the mentioned title. The band's Wikipedia page was also updated with the addition of "Once More Round the Sun" 2014 title in the discography section, but it still remains to be seen on whether the info is true.

Chatting with Soundwave TV last month, guitarist Bill Kelliher described the new album as "more polished and professional," but still not overproduced. "Now we have, I don't wanna say it's like, a polished record, because that usually implies it's something really overproduced and I don't think it is," he said.
