For Immediate Release:






July 11, 2014 – (Burbank, CA) – As previously announced Mastodon will headline their first North American tour in support of their new studio album, ONCE MORE ‘ROUND THE SUN kicking off October 15 in Boise, ID. Tickets are all on-sale as of today. The globally-celebrated hard rock masters are expected to perform songs from the new album, along with crowd favorites from their five other studio albums. The tour will once again feature the celebrated and previously sold-out lineup of Gojira as main support and Kverlertak opening each show.


There will be no heavier, louder or cooler triumvirate of rock on the road together this year:


“We are thrilled to do another leg with Gojira and Kverlertak joining us once again, this time with our new album out and hitting different markets. Should be a good one!” — Mastodon


“The sold out tour we did with Mastodon earlier this year was such a great experience for all of us, we are really excited to do it again this fall! See you on the road again!” — Gojira


“We’re super stoked to announce we’re coming back over to the states to play with Gojira and Mastodon for a second time! The previous tour we did with these guys is the best tour we’ve ever been on, both socially and sonically, we can’t wait to do it all over again. It’s going to be a fucking blast!”  — Erlend Hjelvik/Kvelertak


Released June 24th on Reprise Records, Once More ‘Round The Sun scored Mastodon’s highest US and U.K. chart debuts ever commanding the #1 Rock Album position on Billboards Top Rock Album Chart, Hard Rock Album Chart, Tastemakers Album Chart and Alternative Album Charts simultaneously, while entering #6 Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart. Mastodon achieved the same feat in the U.K. with the #1 Rock Album and Top 10 overall National Album charts 


“The band’s prog-metal potential stuns, with Dailor sounding like a young Ozzy over shredding guitars and enough drum dominance to blow out your speak system. Head-bang on.” – Spin.Com


“The Atlanta quartet’s progress has been steady but exciting, a taut balance of brute force and precision musicianship along with conceptual daring…[OMRTS] features some of the group’s most direct moments and most expansive as well as propulsive. It’s a smart kind of metal, with enough prog and even intellectual touches to raise it above the genre’s standard fare.” – New York Times Syndicate


“The coolest band in rock.” – Drum! Magazine


Once More ‘Round The Sun is available now on CD, standard vinyl and a limited edition Deluxe Package pressed on two 180g black vinyl discs housed in a quadruple gatefold vinyl jacket featuring artwork by Skinner.
