Atlanta metal pioneers Mastodon currently have a lot to celebrate. The group’s latest and sixth studio album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, which was recorded right here in Nashville, just debuted at number six on the Billboard Charts, and nabbed the number one spot in Top Rock Album category, amidst critical accolades. The distinction is well-deserved, as the Grammy-nominated group have been perfecting their sound, a mixture of sludge, progressive, alt metal, stoner, groove, and punk, for nearly 15 years. Lyrically ambitious and musically unpredictable, Mastodon are a staple in modern metal, and were one of our highlights at this year’s Bonnaroo festival. In case you didn’t catch them, or if you’re hungry for a second helping, you’re in luck: Mastodon have just announced their first Nashville show in years, Nov. 6 at Marathon Music Works. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 11, at 10 a.m. right here, and support has yet to be announced. Rejoice, metalheads.
