MASTODON Drummer Brann Dailor Says Band Is About To "Really Dig In On Some New Material"
Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor said back in August that the band has "lots of riffs; there’s lots of material. There’s too much material" for a new album. Now after a year full of touring and writing riffs, Dailor reveals Mastodon is about to dig in and start putting together their follow-up to 2017's Emperor Of Sand.
Had a beautiful walk through the woods around Asheville with my Dad and stepmom. Perfect visit for some inspiration as we’re about to really dig in on some new @mastodonrocks material. Feeling the doom.
Considering Mastodon's shifts between genres and styles, maybe "Feeling the doom" means they're taking a doomier direction for the new material? Or maybe he's just talking about the woods.
Mastodon also has a new song with Neurosis frontman Scott Kelly possibly titled "Fallen Torches" that was recorded to originally be out in January. The band couldn't get the song out the door in time, so as it stands right now, it's just sitting around.
