LISTEN : Mastodon share new song

March 7, 2017

Mastodon has a new album coming out March 31st. Ahead of that, check out the brand new Mastodon single, off the upcoming Emperor Of Sand album.

“Andromeda” is a very Mastodon song – trade-off vocals between bassist Troy Sanders, drummer Brann Dailor and lead guitarist Brent Hinds, delicious riffs and solos courtesty of Hinds and rhythm guitarist Bill Kelliher, and more rolls than a bakery out of Dailor. The lyrics are very much themed around time, and as Dailor expressed to Rolling Stone Magazine, the rest of the album has a similar theme.

“Time is a very big theme of the album,” Dailor tells Rolling Stone. “How much time do we have left? What are we doing with our time?” Dailor added that seeing some of the bandmates friends and family suffer with cancer and treatment was also a heavy influence during the recording.
