Hopefully it'll be better than The Hunter, which was just okay.

So the album is apparently going to be called Once More Around The Sun. No release date scheduled so far but it looks to be possibly a July / August affair.

Another shorter album will be released around December.

Expect to be blown away.

Song titles so far:

Tread Lightly
Aunt Lisa
Ember City
Diamonds In The Witch House
The Scent Of Bitter Almonds
Buzzard Guts
High Road

Mastodon's Troy Sanders Talks New Album Once More Round the Sun
Sanders said the album’s 60-or-so minutes are pure, authentic Mastodon. It launches off as a progression from The Hunter, which saw the band trimming back on song runtimes and pulling away from heavily conceptual pieces like Crack the Skye or Leviathan. “We’re all over the world as far as themes go,” Sanders said. “But there are a few sprinkles of epic goodness.” And with three vocalists—Sanders, drummer Brann Dailor and guitarist Brent Hinds—expect a pretty even split from what Sanders dubs the traditional Mastodon vocal tag-team.

“A lot of people ask us if it kicks off where The Hunter left off,” he said. “And to a large degree, I suppose yes. We recorded it and took it on the road with us, and then we headed back to our rehearsal space and started working out ideas. I’ve had a lot of time to ingest this record, and it’s solid. It’s a large slab of granite. I’m once again completely proud of these guys.”
Unlike many Mastodon albums of the past, Once More Round the Sun’s sessions left the band with some extra material. The band ended up cutting around 30 minutes of music, which Sanders hopes to see as an additional EP after the album release. “We didn’t want a 90-minute album. We like to record around the 60-minute mark. That’s what our favorite records are. We’re in love with all 15 of [the songs], so they might all see the light of day in some platform or another.”

As far as the songs themselves, Sanders has a few favorites. One includes “Diamonds in the Witch House,” which has an expected guest spot from longtime collaborator Scott Kelly of Neurosis. “I think subconsciously that we’re trying to involve him with every album enough to have a full set of songs eventually,” Sanders said, laughing. “I think his performance is great, his part still gives me chills. That’s a great sign.” Another early standout is “Ember City,” which was the first track Sanders contributed lyrically and vocally in the writing process for Once More Round the Sun.” “But I’m a big fan of every song on the record,” he added.

New track "High Road" seems to be out there as outlined in the article below. I haven't had a chance to find a copy though (the original got taken down):

Agreed. Musically I dig it. The Chorus is fucking terrible and kills the song for me. It's almost like they are trying to be Red Fang now but Red Fang is far better at doing that style. I liked The Hunter and I respect any band for trying different things but that Chorus makes me cringe.

I agree - it's mostly the vocals that ruin it for me.

Although, this isn't really a "surprising" song. Sounds exactly "like Mastodon," which is a good thing. But I'm looking forward to seeing how they weird this album up. Each time out they reliably come up with some promising and weird new directions.

The vocals suck but the music ain't too bad.

I never understood the hype surrounding this band.

Certainly sounds like The Hunter part 2, which will please some and upset others. Still, let's wait for the full album before rendering final judgement.

The Hunter 2 is a-OK with me, but yeah, it's one song. But I fucking LOVE that chorus! This is the kind of thing when people say they hate it I'm like, what band have you been listening to for the past however many years? That is pure, balls-out prog-geek shit right there and I love it. Also Troy's scream-growl-bellow only seems to get better over the years which is wonderful.

I dug it myself, but I can see how somebody could be turned off.
