K!1755 – Mastodon: How To Survive The 21st Century

In their near two decades together, Mastodon have faced grief, despair, addiction and near death. Yet the one thing the quartet have never had to face is a life apart from each other. On the eve of their UK return, Brann Dailor, Troy Sanders, Bill Kelliher and Brent Hinds reflect on their inseparable journey – and unwritten future – inside a metal monster…

On top of that, we've also got a brilliant Mastodon art print for you, from the pen of Error! Design's Xavi Forné. See more of Xavi’s work at

Elsewhere in the mag this week, we bring you the first (and absolutely massive) line-up announcement from 2000trees; FIDLAR get real about addiction, recovery and counting the cost of tragic losses ahead of the release of their incredible new album; Primus legend Les Claypool takes our career-spanning Kerrang! Interview; and we come face-to-face with a punk-rock survivor: Pat Flynn of Fiddlehead.

Over in the reviews section, nu-metal elder statesmen Papa Roach show all their colours on album number 10, while Long Island emo legends Taking Back Sunday reflect on their amazing legacy. On the live front, Bury Tomorrow burn the Black Flame brightly at their biggest headline show to date; Myrkur mix the light and the black to stunning, folky effect; and Maryland blues-rockers Clutch struggle to get into the groove in London.

There's also an exclusive Ghost poster special, for all your spooky needs…

All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, January 9 from all good newsagents.
