Friday, 23rd May 2014

Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON are streaming a sample of “Chimes at Midnight,” a song from their forthcoming Once More ‘Round the Sun album. The album will be released by Reprise Records on June 24. It was recorded in Nashville with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who is known for his work with RUSH, DEFTONES, FOO FIGHTERS and ALICE IN CHAINS.

The cover artwork was created by Oakland-based artist Skinner, who specializes in “psychedelic nightmare paintings,” and can be seen below. MASTODON singer and bassist Troy Sanders told Paste Magazine: “It’s… a work of art for sure. It’s… very eye-opening, very striking. It’s from another dimension, and a lot of our music is geared toward that idea — taking you to another planet on songs. It’s out there, and I think it’s incredible.”
