[News] Mastodon stream reflective new single “Sickle And Peace” from upcoming album

Atlanta Prog Metal quartet Mastodon have streamed their brand new single, the reflective “Sickle And Peace taken from upcoming album “Hushed & Grim” due out on October 29, 2021 via Reprise Records. Watch the official video through the YouTube player below:

It’s taken from the band’s upcoming album “Hushed & Grim,” the band’s first new studio work for four years, which will be released through Reprise Records on October 29, 2021.

Hushed & Grim” was recorded in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, over the course of the past 12 months with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Rush, Muse, Peter Gabriel). An atmosphere of very real loss, loneliness, and longing permeates through the trio of cathartic vocals as they musically say goodbye to old friend, confidant, and longtime manager the late Nick John by architecting an affecting, intense body of work that bears the influence of his eternal memory. 

We were angry about what had happened to our friend,” says drummer and singer Brann Dailor, “so I thought, initially, this was gonna be a fast, heavy, pissed-off record. Over time, it became a slower, more doomy kind of. There are some rippers, but overall it’s a more expansive, melancholy record.
