Brent Hinds Says Mastodon’s Next Release Is Shaping Up To Be A Double Album


Mastodon‘s Troy Sanders wasn’t lying when he said the band were having the “opposite of writers block” with their next release. According to vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds, the effort is shaping up to be a double album, he told Guitar World:

“It’s shaping up to be a double album. One is an album I wrote myself, and recorded with [drummer] Brann [Dailor] and [bassist/vocalist] Troy [Sanders] during the ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun‘ sessions. My part is called ‘Cold Dark Place‘, and it has to do with a nasty breakup that I went through. I wrote some pretty dark, beautiful, spooky, funky, ethereal, melancholy music, which also sounds like the Bee Gees a little bit. [laughs]

The other guys are writing another album, which I haven’t even heard yet so I can’t tell you what it sounds like. But I’ll come in to give some noodle-y leads here and there. And for sure I’ll be recording with my new signature Flying V…while standing on top of a chair with a werewolf mask on. And that’s not a joke; I really do that. I never sit down to record. You can’t sit down and play a Flying V, everyone knows that.”

The guitar Hinds refers to is his new Epiphone signature Flying V Custom, which you can also read more about in Hinds own words at Guitar World.
