Mastodon announce North American tour with Eagles of Death Metal, Russian Circles

Posted by on January 10, 2017

It was rumored/assumed last month that when the Philadelphia’s convergence of Mastodon, Opeth, Gojira, Eagles of Death Metal Devin Townsend Project and Russian Circles was announced for May 6th that it might just be the convergence of two amazing tours. Then it was announced by Devin Townsend that they would be opening the rest of the Opeth and Gojira tour. It was just a matter of time until we found out whether or not the other three bands would be doing an actual tour, and now it’s official – Mastodon will be touring with Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles.

The tour will kick off on April 14th in Missoula, MT, and while a release date for Mastodon’s follow-up to Once More ‘Round the Sun hasn’t been announced yet, it’s probably going to launch around the time of the tour, as anyone that buys a pair of tickets (except the Philly date and their festival appearances) will get a copy of the album. Here’s what the  band has to say about the tour: 

“Hey! Good news everybody, we are hitting the road this spring with some great friends of ours Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles. We couldn’t be more excited to pour majestic rock sauce all over your town.  Come on down and help us celebrate the season of new beginnings where fresh buds bloom, animals awaken, the earth comes to life and there’s a new Mastodon album to melt your face off! See you there!”
