Mastodon Album Update: 'All Songs Are Very Death-Oriented'
Speaking with Village Voice, Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor has revealed that he considers the band's upcoming album "Once More Round the Sun" as an "awesome summertime fun-time record" even though "all the song titles are very death-oriented:"

"Not that it couldn't be enjoyed in the winter. But I remember records coming out in the summertime and it's on at every party you go to - we had that mindset when we were putting it all together and deciding which songs were going to sit this one out."

Dailor notes that while the band have had "a discussion of maybe coming up with a winter EP to put out that would be more of a 'snuggle up next to the fire. A little quieter. And to announce that, so no one is expecting to get their head bashed in," the latest record, while "super dark and super creepy and heavy and beautiful at the same time," is also "up-tempo:"

"For some reason I picture heshers in their cars, they pop the CD in, and from start to finish, they can blast it. Or at a party in the woods and drink beers and have fun as a 14-year-old human, not a care in the world."

"Once More Round the Sun" will be released next month via Warner/Reprise.
