MASTODON: Stream New Song “High Road”

MASTODON has unveiled a brand new song “High Road” from their forthcoming album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, produced by Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, ALICE IN CHAINS). The album comes out April 29, 2014. Check out the song below.

MASTODON band members had this to say about the new song:

“I wrote that on a day off while we were on tour in Luxembourg. I was sitting in this rainy city on a Sunday, and nothing was open. I felt like I needed to write something to reflect how I was feeling. I started banging on a guitar. I was thinking NEUROSIS and THE MELVINS low-tuned with a little more pop sensibility for the chorus.” — Bill Kelliher

“You can headbang to that one for days. I love the simplicity of it. Lyrically, it’s an angry number where you want to see someone destroyed. It’s heavy-handed in that sense, but it’s the fantasy I felt at the time.” — Brann Dailor
