Mastodon to tour with Gojira, Kvelertak again this fall

Posted by on July 7, 2014

Looks like Gojira”s tour with Mastodon and Kvelertak earlier this year went pretty well, since the bands have announced that they’ll be touring together again this fall, playing secondary markets that they might not have reached earlier this year. However, for those that aren’t in the tour markets, the meat of the announcement comes from Gojira’s Joe Duplantier, who told Metal Hammer‘s TeamRock Radio that the band will be heading into the studio as soon as the tour’s over to record their follow-up to L’Enfant Sauvage:

We are working on new songs these days, between tours and sometimes on tour. We can’t wait to record a new album. So we still have a few shows to play then we are going to tour with Mastodon later this year, in October. But after that we are going straight into the studio and we want to release an album next year.

It’d make sense that the two bands tour together again. They’re both prog-leaning bands and they share the same management company. Here, via Mastodon’s website, are the tour dates:
