Mastodon Announce European Tour

Progressive metal band Mastodon have announced new summer tour dates in Europe. Though most of the stops consist of festival appearances, the Atlanta-based rockers have lined up several headlining shows.

News of the tour comes hot on the heels of the March 15 release of the band’s first-ever live CD/DVD, ‘Live at the Aragon.’ Filmed and recorded at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, the set includes ‘Crack the Skye’ (2009) performed in its entirety alongside Mastodon fan favorites.

In a recent interview with Noisecreep, Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor confirmed that the band is working on a new album. Regarding how much material the band has for the new record, Dailor stated, “We’ve got tons of stuff. We’ve got too much stuff. We go in there every day and just work on it. It’s coming out great.”
