MASTODON recently announced the cancelation of its previously announced shows that were to take place from August 7 through September 3 due to a personal family matter. MASTODON will return to the road in Latin America in late September. The September 5 show in Iceland has been rescheduled for December 5.
MASTODON’s latest album, “Once More ‘Round The Sun”, sold around 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on June 24, 2014 via Reprise Records.
“Once More ‘Round The Sun” 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.
