According to this new Instagram from Brent Hinds of Mastodon, the band are finishing up their sixth studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz (and apparently Valient Himself of Valient Thorr). Not many other details of the album have surfaced yet, but since the band is in the home stretch for recording with a previously reported early 2014 release, we’ll likely be hearing more about it soon.
In the meantime, a truly awesome tour rumor has come up to join the ranks of all the other amazing tours coming soon. The PRP has reported a rumored tour lineup featuring Mastodon, Gojira, and Kvelertak. Holy. Hell. That is a bill well worth seeing. Fingers crossed that it becomes a reality.
