Last week, everyone was going berserk with excitement when Dave Grohl was spotted amongst pictures Mastodon took from the studio. Did this mean that the Foo Fighters frontman was making an appearance on the new album?! After a ton of conjecture on the internetz, the answer is… no.
As it turns out, Grohl will indeed NOT be appearing on Mastodon’s new album. While other sites also confirm this, Mastodon’s management responded back to Metal Insider when we reached out for a comment and told us that Grohl simply “stopped by to hang out for the day.”
Even though we knew Grohl’s appearance was likely just a visit, it’s still nonetheless a bummer. Oh well, at least we’ll still get a new Mastodon album soon! We’ll keep you posted as more develops.
