    Mastadon, Mars Volta.... UGasm
    Didn't another one of TMV's keyboardists play on either Leviathan or Blood Mountain?
    Blood Mountain and it was Ikey Owens. He's probably really good friends with them. (Maybe he'll become a full time member. That would be cool).

    Yo guys Europe exists too ;_;
    Hey! You guys usually always get a bunch of other great tours that we dont get!
    true that. Mastodon toured with The Ocean in Europe last year.I just hope this tour extends beyond rock on the range. would love to see Mastodon and Gojira.
    I truly hope this finds its way to Europe, specifically the UK (for my own selfish reasons). As 2 of the 3 bands are European youd think so, but I'm beginning to suspect it might not happen if both mastodon & gojira will be finishing off records for release this year. Fingers crossed!
    Saw Mastodon before in Baltimore, and they played Crack the Skye in it's entirety . . . amazing. Can't wait to see what they do in Philly!
    My gf mentioned this to me last night. REALLY wanna go see em. So hopefully I'll have money and can get a ticket for the Chicago show.
    This'd also be the 4th time shes seen Gojira and the 2nd time shes seen Mastodon if shes able to go. We're also making plans on seeing Ghost together in April.
    Why the hell did you get downvoted?
    Because you know that friend you have that wont shut up about his girlfriend, trying to convince you how awesome she is and likes all the same stuff you do - that dude turned into UG's version for a moment there...
    The fragmentation of the Mars Volra has ushered in an era of collaboration that brings my eyes to tears. In a good way.
    hmm, both Mastodon and Gojira FB pages say tour kicks off on Apr 28th in Seattle. Does anyone know if it's actually happening?
    Missed them when they were with Opeth and Ghost cause I had an exam, I really hope they come around again.
    See gojira...although when i read it it sounded like I can't wait to gojira in my pants
    FUCKING AWESOME! Love Mastodon and Kvelertak are some raw ass ****ing jams missed their show a couple months ago. Not missing this!
