Atlanta based metal band Mastodon is set to release a new EP! Cold Dark Place will feature four previously unreleased tracks. Digital and CD copies will be available on September 22 via Reprise Records, but the rock doesn’t stop there. On October 27, a limited-edition ten-inch vinyl picture disc will be available for purchase!
Three of the Cold Dark Place tracks were recorded during the studio sessions for the band’s 2014 album, Once More 'Round The Sun. This session includes "North Side Star", "Blue Walsh" and "Cold Dark Place." The fourth track, “Toe to Toes,” was recorded during the 2017 Emperor Of Sand studio sessions.
Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of “Toe to Toes” on September 1st!
The EP isn’t the only exciting Mastodon news. The band is to appear on the cover of Revolver magazine next month! The issue hits newsstands on September 12. It will be available in four unique covers, each with a different Mastodon member. Placed side by side, the four covers create an image of the full band, which includes Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher and Troy Sanders.
Mastodon will spend the rest of 2017 on a North American and European tour in support of Emperor of Sand. Check out the Cold Dark Place tracklisting and cover art below!
