Mastodon trail limited vinyl

Mastodon have released a trailer video showing the unboxing of a limited-edition version of sixth album Once More 'Round The Sun.

Drummer Brann Dailor calls the album “a reflection of our past,” adding: “a few songs are a bit out-there and show a new direction. We’re happy with it.”

The band last week offered a stream of all 11 tracks via iTunes, ahead of its release on Monday. The band will play Sonisphere on the weekend of July 4-6.

The double-vinyl version featured below comes with a digital download voucher.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. 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.
