GRAMMY® Award-winning Atlanta heavy rock quartet Mastodon present a brand-new single and music video entitled Teardrinker.
It stands out as the first official single from their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, Hushed And Grim, arriving on October 29, 2021 via Reprise Records. It is available for pre-order at all digital retailers and in vinyl and physical configurations here.
Invoking their evolution again, the elegiac track’s melodic riff cuts through a steady groove before a haunting hook takes hold, “I can see your face, and I feel the pain, and I feel the shame that I have let you down again.” The vocal call-and-response spirals into warbling guitar leads, and one last cathartic blast of distortion and drums. In the accompanying clip directed by Lorenzo Diego Carrera, the band enters an empty warehouse before being immersed into four uniquely curated mini universes, each of them feeding tears to a greater deity filling it with more life and power.
