Mastodon Announce North American Tour with Gojira

Mastodon Announce North American Tour with Gojira
After delivering their proggy Once More 'Round the Sun earlier this year, burl-curlin' metal beasts Mastodon have revealed that they'll be heading 'round North America on tour at least one more time before the year is through.

The recently announced tour plans follow a few sporadic festival appearances throughout the summer and fall, with the trip properly kicking off October 15 in Boise, ID. The Atlanta outfit will be joined on these dates by fellow metal juggernauts Gojira, and both bands will cross into Canada once to play Montreal's Metropolis on October 29.

You'll find all of Mastodon's globe-trotting itinerary down below.

In related news, Mastodon are also prepping for the deluxe reissue of their debut LP, Remission. Due August 5 via Relapse Records, the double-LP set features three sides of music, fully remixed by Matt Bayles, and an etching on the D side. The re-release also features new artwork from Paul Romano.

As for Gojira, the band recently revealed to Metal Hammer that they've begun work on a follow-up to 2012's Les Enfants Sauvages. Frontman Joe Duplantier explained that they'll be hitting a recording studio after the Mastodon tour and expect to issue the LP sometime in 2015.
