Mastodon announces tour supporting Album ‘Once More Round the Sun.’ After a few festival appearances late September last year, which included the Riot Fest Chicago, and Hopscotch, the Atlanta metal superstars hope to embark on a series of outings that span for about 18 days starting from 15th October through late November.
After that, they will hopefully cross the Atlantic all the way to the UK for a tour that will probably happen on late November. The Once More Round the Sun album was not only the number one Rock Album in both the US and the UK during its first week, but it also debuted at number six on the Billboard Top 200. In fact, the debut marks the highest chart in their music history.
The Once More Round the Sun tour will once again feature the talented and mighty Gojira, as well as fun as hell Kvelertak. The globally acclaimed hard rock superstars are expected to perform a number of songs from this latest album, along with other songs from their five-studio albums.
The second and final leg of the US tour will commence in Mid-October at Boise, Indiana and wraps up in Atlanta, Georgia on early November. Mastodon also wishes to continue promoting the Album and hopes to make some late night TV appearance in one of Jimmy Kimmel shows.
I had the privilege to catch one of the tours back on May last year when it rolled through Denver, and tell you that it was worth every penny. Kvelertak had the crowd rolling in the aisles with their popular blackened punk n’ roll jams.
On the other hand, Gojira destroyed and leveled everything around the vicinity, whereas Mastodon gave an audio history of how they came to be one of the biggest metal bands the world over. Therefore, if you have a chance of attending one of the tours, I really urge you do so.
