Mastodon announce new album Hushed And Grim

Mastodon have revealed details of their ninth album Hushed And Grim

Mastodon have announced details of the new album titled Hushed And Grim.

The Atlantan metallers will release their ninth album – the follow-up to 2017’s Emperor Of Sand – on October 29 via Reprise Records.

Hushed And Grim was forged over the past year in Mastodon’s hometown, and was produced by David Bottrill, who’s perhaps best-known for his work with Tool, Muse and Peter Gabriel.

Coming in at 15-tracks and two discs, it’s a lengthy, ambitious effort from the sludge-ridden titans, and one that has been influenced by the loss of their friend and longtime manager Nick John, who passed away in 2018.

To mark the album announcement, Mastodon have released a video for new single Pushing The Tides.

The striking album artwork was conceived by long-time collaborator Paul Romano, who also designed the sleeves for Crack The Skye, Blood Mountain, Leviathan and more.

How collective grief shaped Mastodon’s most grandiose, gut-wrenching album ever
