Mastodon have announced some Australian tour dates on the back of their appearance on the Soundwave 2012 line-up. Gojira and Kvelertak will support them on their shows at Billboard in Melbourne and The Hi-Fi in Sydney.
The Hunter is the band’s fifth studio album and follow-up to the band’s 2009 album Crack The Skye. Guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds recently told Rolling Stone: Kids are going to get into trouble to this album. They’re going to break speakers, pop springs on their beds and get drunk and nude in public.
Gojira, twisting and reimagining metal and delivering something wholly unique. The French behemoths have established themselves as a dominant force in metal since the release of their breakthrough album From Mars To Sirius.
Norway’s Kvelertak are fast becoming one of the most talked about bands in metal. Releasing their debut self-titled album to critical acclaim with Norway’s rock authority Asbjørn Slettemark declaring it “the best Norwegian debut album of all time”.
Tickets will go on sale Thursday 15th December at 9am (AEST)
