Mastodon release new track Toe To Toes


Mastodon have released a stream of their track Toe To Toes, from upcoming EP Cold Dark Place. Listen to it above.

It’s taken from their Cold Dark Place EP, which is released on September 22 and is available for pre-order now. A limited-edition 10-inch vinyl picture disc will follow on October 27.

Toe To Toes was recorded during sessions for the band’s most recent album Emperor Of Sand, while the other three tracks on the EP were laid down while the band were working on 2014’s Once More ‘Round The Sun.

Guitarist Brent Hinds said of Cold Dark Place last year: “It’s an album I wrote myself and recorded with Brann and Troy during the Once More ‘Round The Sun sessions. It has to do with a nasty breakup that I went through.”

Mastodon commence a US tour this month, with UK dates to follow in December – full dates below.

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
