And, I’m not so sure how I feel about it. I’m kinda bored, actually — especially since this isn’t supposed to be a concept album from Mastodon.
No — The Hunter is supposed to avoid concepts, and just straight-up rock, from what the band’s been saying. But The Hunter sounds like a concept album to me…and is also a Bjork song, by the way.
Mastodon‘s Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor confirmed the album’s title in an interview with MTV Germany.
The band recently wrapped up tracking the brand new effort, which should be out before the end of the year.
Mixing will be happening soon, and fall is looking like the time the band might drop the album.
Mastodon also told MTV Germany that they’d like to someday release a covers album. No word, though, on just when that might go down, or who they might be covering.
