Mastodon announce tour
2014-02-04 by BrianE | 30 Comments

2014 is looking to be a big year for Mastodon, as the Atlanta heavy metal veterans will be hitting the road this spring. They will be joined by Gojira and Kvelertak as opening acts. If that's not enough, the band also revealed they are putting the finishing touches on their sixth studio album, the followup to 2011's The Hunter. The disc is planned for release later in the year.

Saw Mastodon live over the summer. I love these guys but their live show is weak as hell.

It's not their show is really weak as Mastodon doesn't interact with the crowd that much if at all (copying Neurosis I suppose), they have their head down for most of the set, and they don't really play their instruments with any emotion.

I saw them play with The Dillinger Escape Plan a few years ago and Dillinger's performance was a lot better than Mastodon's. Dillinger wasn't more technical but they stage dived, played their instruments on top of their amps, started mosh pits, and thrashed around everywhere. If Mastodon interacted with the crowd like that and showed emotion like that, their live show would be a lot better.

I saw Mastodon on the Hunter / Heritage tour when they toured with Opeth and Ghost, and I saw them when they toured with DEP, so I saw same tour as you MasBarHigeuoris21. I can tell you that they upped their game substantially since they played with DEP, because on Hunter / Heritage tour Mastodon absolutely killed it. The band did not move around a ton, but the sound was so crisp, the playing was so tight, the music was so good, the crowd was absolutely insane. They pretty much just played the entirety of Hunter plus a few other tracks. It was the perfect show, and easily the best one I've ever been to, and I attribute that to the Hunter just being a much better live album to play than the others.

I am so pumped to see Mastodon for the third time, and Gojira for the first..
So pumped..

Gojira's last N.A. tour was stupendously good. I've been a huge Mastodude since 2006 but Gojira is the more exciting band at the moment, live and otherwise. This should be a lot of fun.

I'd love to see Mastodon in Buffalo sometime but I decided not to see anymore shows at the Town Ballroom. Not that there's anything wrong with the venue, but i've seen so many shows there that it's starting to affect how much I enjoy them.
