Atlanta-based heavy rock icons MASTODON have confirmed a spring U.S. headline tour which will kick off on April 14th in Missoula, MT, with support from Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles. The tour also includes stops at several festivals, including the Carolina Rebellion Festival on May 5th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 13th at 10 am local time, except Nashville, TN, which goes on sale at 12 pm local time. Every pair of tickets purchased online for Mastodon (excluding festival dates and the May 6th Philadelphia date) includes your choice of a physical or digital copy of their new, soon-to-be released album.

Mastodon says of the tour, “Hey! Good news everybody, we are hitting the road this spring with some great friends of ours Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles. We couldn’t be more excited to pour majestic rock sauce all over your town. Come on down and help us celebrate the season of new beginnings where fresh buds bloom, animals awaken, the earth comes to life and there’s a new Mastodon album to melt your face off! See you there!”
As previously announced, Mastodon completed the follow-up to their universally praised 2014 album Once More ‘Round The Sun. Details regarding their new studio album will be announced soon.
