Mastodon To Perform Entire New Album On Tour
Jonathan Cohen from Billboard.com is reporting:
Atlanta-based MASTODON have a strange story to tell on their new seven song, 50-minute heavy metal opus, Crack The Skye. And the best way to hear the whole twisted tale will be live and direct: the band plans to perform the album, due March 24, in its entirety on their upcoming tour.
The complete album performance is something new for the group, says bassist Bill Kelliher, but "there's something about (Crack The Skye) where it would be weird to leave a song out. We'll incorporate a whole stage show, which will hopefully make it even more exciting for kids to come see and more visually stimulating." The band is also hoping to make a short movie from all the songs, which Kelliher hopes will be Mastodon's version of The Wall.
The trek begins at Coachella in mid-April, after which Mastodon heads to Europe to support METALLICA. But hometown Moastodon fans will get a preview tomorrow night (February 28) when the band headlines a free, 40-band heavy metal festival at Atlanta's Masquerade nightclub, produced by the car company Scion.
