Mastodon Working On 'Radioheadish' Sounds On Next Album
Mastodon are coming off one of their more well-received albums with "The Hunter" and they're in the mood to keep things rolling. Singer-guitarist Brent Hinds reveals that writing is currently underway on their follow-up and there's potential that they'll begin recording just after the start of 2013. Hinds tells, "We've never put out an album a year. That would be unlike us, so maybe we could tour for another year on 'The Hunter.' It's very possible." Mastodon is wrapping up a South American tour with the possibility that Hinds will follow with some West End Motel shows in support of their "Only Time Can Tell" disc. Once that is done, Hinds says there's a chance that a January Mastodon recording session could follow. As for the Mastodon stuff he's been working on of late, he explains, "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 Radioheadish and very spooky sounding. According to Loudwire, Hinds says he has three songs worth of material, but he adds, "It could be one gigantic one. I haven't made up my mind yet." Regardless of how far along he is, he's confident that the rest of his bandmates are also working toward the common goal of a new record. He concludes, "Those dudes are always working. 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."
