Mastodon Announces New Tour Dates And Festival Appearances

Mastodon will hit the road in Europe, performing at festivals, including Pinkpop, Sonisphere, and Nova Rock, as well as headlining shows beginning May 23rd and continuing through the end of June. Mastodon will also perform at both the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the U.K. in August.

Mastodon is touring in support of latest album "The Hunter" (reviewed here), which entered the Billboard Top 200 Album chart in the Top 10 and found its way onto several Year End/Best Of critics' lists, including those compiled by Rolling Stone, Spin, Revolver, Decibel and more.

The band travels to Europe a few days after performing at this year's Rock on the Range Festival on May 20th. Mastodon has been on the road since early April co-headlining a U.S. tour with Swedish metal band Opeth and special guest Ghost that wraps on May 12th with a show in Mastodon's hometown Atlanta at The Masquerade.
