Mastodon and Opeth Join Forces For 2021 US Tour 

20th September 2021 | Category: Concerts

Mastodon and Opeth have just announced a massive 2021 U.S. tour with Zeal & Ardor supporting.

Mastodon will be touring in support of their upcoming album Hushed & Grim, which will hit shelves right in time for Halloween on October 29. Zeal & Ardor have been steadily releasing singles for their self-titled third studio album, which is due out Feb. 11, 2022. Opeth’s most recent release was the lauded In Cauda Venenum back in 2019.

The three-week bill will begin Nov. 14 at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Florida and finish up Dec. 5 in Denver, Colorado. 

Hushed and Grim, is Mastodon’s ninth studio album, which the band described as their “most ambitious body of work to date”.

The new double-disc record – which is the Atlanta metallers’ first since 2017’s Emperor of Sand – is louded by guitarist Bill Kelliher to be their “biggest-sounding” LP yet. 

“We all just kind of [went into it] with open minds,” he said in an interview earlier this year. “The result is amazing. It’s the fullest, biggest-sounding record we’ve done so far.” 

According to the press release, the 15-tracks and two discs album will be a notably experimental record.  It sees the band “surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog threaded together by the innately expressive musical interplay of these four virtuosic musicians”.

Produced by Tool, Rush, and Muse collaborator David Bottrill, the record is supposedly “steeped in one of the darkest periods of [Mastodon’s] career as each member [experienced] personal grief”.
