Mastodon 'Very Busy' Recording New Album
Mastodon are writing and recording songs for a new album, to follow their 2011 record "The Hunter." The band posted this update on their album progress (via Blabbermouth): "For those of you who are interested, yes, we have been VERY busy writing and putting songs together for the next studio Mastodon album. We are down at our space hammering out riffs that can be friends and working our fingers to the bone to put out another great album." So what will it sound like? Guitarist and frontman Brent Hinds hinted at their new sound in an interview with MTV Hive last year. "A lot of the stuff I'm writing is in open G-minor. I'm playing a lot of slide guitar and just getting really Jimmy Page-y on the place and getting really eerie and Radiohead-ish and very spooky-sounding," he said at the time. He continued: "There's never really a shortage of music with Mastodon because all of us are working on something musically. I'm in good company. Just because they might [see me] stand in the middle of the stage or something, people might think this is the leader. He must conduct everything, but we're all the leaders. We spread the weight around." Meanwhile, you can hear some new music from Mastodon in the new Pixar movie "Monsters University" which is a prequel to the much-loved animation "Monsters Inc." It'll be out in July, and you can hear the song in the film (go on, it's not just for kids!) or on UG the moment we find an online stream of the track. What do you hope for from a new Mastodon record? Let us know in the comments.
