Mastodon Premiere New Song, "High Road"

Mastodon Premiere New Song,

Mastodon have premiered a new song, "High Road." Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

The song comes off Once More Round the Sun, their sixth studio album to be released this summer.

“I wrote that on a day off while we were on tour in Luxembourg," guitarist Bill Kelliher comments. "I was sitting in this rainy city on a Sunday, and nothing was open. I felt like I needed to write something to reflect how I was feeling. I started banging on a guitar. I was thinking Neurosis and The Melvins low-tuned with a little more pop sensibility for the chorus.”

“You can headbang to that one for days," drummer Brann Dailor adds. "I love the simplicity of it. Lyrically, it’s an angry number where you want to see someone destroyed. It’s heavy-handed in that sense, but it’s the fantasy I felt at the time.”
