Our favorite heavy metal troupe has been plotting a certifiably awesome tour with rock legends Dinosaur Jr. That’s right. We’re talking about the ferocious, unrivaled bad-assery that is Mastodon. The skillful ensemble announced their tour dates on April 30th, 2018.
Mastodon Tour With Primus
Before the tour with Dinosaur Jr., however, the Atlanta, Georgia unit will undertake a two month expedition with prog-rockers Primus. They will conclude that tour on July 7th when they visit the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. The vigorous outfit will then take a month to recoup before performing two shows in Japan prior to the tour with Dinosaur Jr.
Emperor of Sand
The predatory Georgian foursome released their seventh studio album in 2017 with “Emperor of Sand”. The album was a heavy hitting blend of psychedelic wildness and rugged yet melodic riffs from our man Brent Hinds. Tracks like ‘Steambreather’ and ‘Show Yourself’ were a testament to the versatility and longevity of the 18 year veterans. The album featured a plethora of masterfully constructed riffs and drum fills. The chorus of intrepid rockers also released a bonus EP, titled “Cold Dark Place”, which features four previously unreleased tracks from their 2014 and 2017 albums.
The voyage will begin on September 1st in Edmonton and come to a close in Hamilton on September 19th. It will encompass 13 shows in total, with two of them exempting Dinosaur Jr. Those shows are on the 2nd and 12th, in Calgary and Cleveland.
