The almighty Mastodon have confirmed that they’re working on a new album via a statement made on the band’s Facebook page yesterday.
“For those of you who are interested, Yes we have been VERY busy writing and putting songs together for the next studio MASTODON album, we are down at our space hammering out riffs that can be friends and working our fingers to the bone to put out another great album. thank you to all our loyal fans!!!!”
It’s going to be hard to top previous releases, 2011’s The Hunter and 2009’s Crack the Skye, which hit numbers 10 and 11, respectively, on the Billboard 200 chart, but we have no doubt that they’ll come up with something mind blowingly awesome with some sweet album artwork to boot.
While we wait for the new album, let’s just bask in the glory of this little Mastodon gem.
