Mastodon’s Brann Dailor On Band’s Next Album: “There’s Too Much Material”


Mastodon drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor gave some insight into the band’s current writing and record plans during an interview with Razor 94.7 104.7 conducted at last month’s ‘Rock USA‘ festival in Oshkosh, WI. Dailor had the following to say of the band’s next release:

“We have a song that we wrote, and we recorded it. We have done so much touring — for ‘Emperor [Of Sand]’, and then we did this ‘Crack The Skye‘ [anniversary] tour with Coheed that we just got off of, and then we just had, like, a week and a half or two weeks in between, and then these two festivals — but this is it.

We have one festival in October, but we have a couple months [off now], and we’re kind of chomping at the bit to get in there and put together some of the ideas that have been swirling around. There’s lots of riffs; there’s lots of material. There’s too much material, so we need to get in there and start chipping away at that giant hunk of granite and hopefully produce a beautiful sculpture for all to see.”

The band were originally planning to release a new song featuring NeurosisScott Kelly earlier this year around their European/UK run with him, however those plans didn’t pan out.
