Mastodon: Work Begins On New Album


Mastodon’s Brent Hinds tells MTVHive that writing has commenced for their next studio release.

In fact, if they work continues at the pace they’re currently at, Mastodon may be ready to hit the studio in January.

“We’ve never put out an album a year,” Hinds says. “That would be unlike us, so maybe we could tour for another year on The Hunter. It’s very possible.”

Hinds also discussed the material he, himself, has been working on.

“A lot of the stuff I’m writing is in open G-minor,” says Hinds. “I’m playing a lot of slide guitar and just getting really Jimmy Page-y on the place and getting really eerie and Radioheadish and very spooky sounding.”

As for the rest of the band, “those dudes are always working. There’s never really a shortage of music with Mastodon because all of us are working on something musically. I’m in good company. Just because they might stand in the middle of the stage or something, people might think, this is the leader, he must conduct everything, but we’re all the leaders. We spread the weight around.”

So, new Mastodon could possibly maybe be released in 2013? That’s cool.
