Mastodon have just shared a brand new track called "High Road," a cut from their upcoming record, Once More Round the Sun. The track was leaked online yesterday, but the band decided to release an official version. Listen above.
The song gets a sludgy start, with deep, droning riffs pushing the song forward. The chorus sees Brann Dailor's vocals soar as he belts, "You take the high road down / I'll take the one below you." And, of course, the song wouldn't be complete without a two-part solo played on dueling guitars. This taste of the new material tells us that Once More Round the Sun will be very distinctly Mastodon.
The new record is expected out June of this year on Warner Bros. Records.
