CO-HEADLINE TOUR WITH OPETH

NOMINATED FOR “BEST METAL PERFORMANCE” AT 2022 GRAMMY® AWARDS

March 21st, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) – GRAMMY® Award winnersMastodon celebrate their upcoming co-headline tour with Opeth with an acoustic version of “Teardrinker” from their internationally acclaimed album Hushed and Grim. The reimagined version features a wistful element that underscores its lyrical heartbreak with sweeping backing harmonies and piano supported by the acoustic guitar pattern. “Teardrinker (Acoustic)” displays a new side to Mastodon’s musical prism that is as equally powerful as the original but through a more plaintive lens. The track was composed by all four band members and features lead vocals by Brann Dailor, with backing vocals by Brent HindsTroy Sanders, and Dailor as well. Joao Nogueira provides keyboards and will also be touring with Mastodon.

As previously announced, 2022 GRAMMY® nominated Mastodon will return to the road for the second leg of their acclaimed co-headline tour with Opeth this Spring. The North American jaunt resumes on April 21 at Place Bell in Montreal, QC, stops in major markets coast-to-coast and concludes on May 14 at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA. Tickets are on sale now.  Click here for more details.

Hushed and Grim took the #1 position on the Billboard Hard Rock Album Chart with the band’s first double album. The band had achieved the same feat with their last studio album Emperor Of Sand in 2017. Concurrently, Hushed and Grim also topped the official Rock and Metal Chart in the U.K.  As previously announced, Mastodon is nominated at the 2022 GRAMMY® Awards in the category of Best Metal Performance for “Pushing The Tides. This marks the band’s sixth career nomination at the ceremony.

Hushed and Grim was recorded in Atlanta at the band’s very own studio, West End Sound. Produced by David Bottrill (Tool, Rush, Muse, Peter Gabriel), the 15-track album is easily their most ambitious studio work to date and demonstrates Mastodon’s disparate confluence of textures that include classic rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog interwoven by their innately expressive musical interplay. The album also serves as a tribute to their old friend, confidant, and longtime manager the late Nick John who tragically passed away from Pancreatic cancer in September 2018Always pushing their creative process to greater expanse, the ever-evolving music of Mastodon defies categorization. It is simply Mastodon music.  Click here to view and share an inside view into the band’s unique creative process.
