Mastodon have revealed the title of their new album: The Hunter, due out later this year
(date tba) on Reprise. Today they also announced six new song titles that will
appear on it: “Curl Of
The Burl,” “Dry
Bone Valley,”
“Blasteroids,”
“The Octopus Has No Friends,” “All The Heavy Lifting,” and “Stargasm.”

 

 

It’s the follow-up to 2009’s Crack the Skye and was recorded in the
band’s hometown of Atlanta as well as in Los Angeles with producer
Mike Elizondo. As with all of their albums, Mastodon, which is bassist/vocalist
Troy Sanders, guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds, guitarist Bill Keliher, and
drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor, decided “to take a completely different tack and
musical approach to the music on this album.”

 

 

Beginning
today, June 28, fans can log on to www.adultswim.com/singles to download a rare and previously unreleased song from the previous album’s sessions, titled “Deathbound,” as part of the
ten week 2011 Adult Swim Singles Program. The same destination will also offer
an amazing exclusive video for the song. This is the only place to see and hear
this Mastodon rarity.
