MASTODON Guitarist / Vocalist BRENT HINDS Breaks Leg In Motorcycle Incident

Mastodon guitarist / vocalist Brent Hinds has revealed that he has broken his leg in a motorcycle incident. Hinds issued the post below via Instagram with the caption: “Broke my fucking leg starting my motorcycle goddamnit. Sorry to all the shows I was about to play with gto (Giraffe Tongue Orchestra) and west and more and fiend without a face. Lifes a bitch then you die :( happy thanking!”

Mastodon recently completed recordings for their next studio album, which follows their 2014 album, Once More ‘Round The Sun. Once again, Mastodon chose to record with famed producer Brendan O’Brien, who first worked with Mastodon on their 2009 ground-breaking concept album, Crack The Skye.

So what can one expect from Mastodon’s seventh studio exploration? Well… never ones to repeat, Mastodon embrace the challenge to continually push themselves toward an elevated trajectory with each new release. Their fearless blend of styles, textures and concepts have created a sonic pathway all their own. Each band member contributes their personal genetic footprint into their collective sound that has not only inspired contemporaries but has alighted fans and critics to espouse their appreciation.

Mastodon recorded new tracks just outside their home-city of Atlanta while the mixing process will begin in Los Angeles shortly with a view to release the new album in the early part of the New Year.
