A new Mastodon song called “High Road” comes our way via “a radio station” via The PRP. Let’s you and me listen to it for the very first time together then express our feelings in the comments, mmmkay? Snap first impression: it reminds me a little bit of “Curl of the Burl” in that it’s got a big, looping riff and seems be a shorter, more straight-forward concise song with a memorable hook, as opposed to the band’s older, crazier, more progressive stuff. But it’s no less rockin’.
Mastodon’s new album Once More Round The Sun is due in June, although we’re not exactly sure when; read all about the genesis of that name, and be sure to check out this fascinating interview with Brann Dailor as well, in which the Mastodrummer reveals some more details about the album. Oh, oh, and that time very recently we interviewed Troy Sanders on our podcast, check that out too!
