Mastodon Announces North American Fall Tour

Mastodon

Three weeks after releasing their sixth studio album Once More ’Round the Sun, Mastodon is set to take their show once more ’round North America this fall. The tour kicks off on October 15 at Revolution in Boise, Idaho before criss crossing the U.S. with a stop in Montreal for good measure. The fall outing will wrap up at the Tabernacle in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia on November 7. Mastodon will be joined by French metal outfit Gojira as well as Kvelertak.

In an interview with Paste, bassist Troy Sanders says the title for Once More ’Round the Sun comes from their touring and recording cycle.

“After we finished the two-year touring cycle on our last record, The Hunter, we were kind of gearing up to go back to our rehearsal space in Atlanta. And we were starting the effort, the time, the blood, the energy, the months of driving, the recording and the long process between recording and the release day,” he shared. “In a nutshell: we’re fortunate enough to do this again, but there’s this feeling of this yearly cycle. It’s not a bad thing. We get to go tour a bunch, we get to record a bunch of songs we love. It’s embracing the positive—the wonderful side, to be able to have the same four dudes who love doing what we do so much. And like anything in the Mastodon world, it’s open to interpretation.”
