The mighty Mastodon have announced a new spring North American tour. The band has been working on their sixth album and follow-up to 2011’s The Hunter with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Foo Fighters), which is expected to be released this year. In the meantime, the group is ready to bring some blood and thunder to the United States, starting off in the Pacific Northwest and circling over to the East Coast and Midwest.
