Mastodon stream Pushing The Tides from new album Hushed And Grim

Mastodon are streaming a video for “Pushing The Tides”, the lead single from their newly-announced double album, “Hushed And Grim.”

Due October 29, the band recorded the project in their hometown of Atlanta, GA with producer David Bottrill [Tool, Rush, Muse, Peter Gabriel]; the set features 15 songs, surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog while maintaining the group’s strong musical identity.

Mastodon worked on the follow-up to 2017's "Emperor Of Sand" during a period following the loss of longtime manager Nick John, who died while undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer in 2018; as a result, an atmosphere of very real loss, loneliness, and longing permeates through the album as they musically say goodbye to their old friend and confidant.

Earlier this year, the group issued "Forged By Neron”, a track from the “Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack”, and recently delivered a livestream of a rare acoustic performance from the Georgia Aquarium.

Mastodon launched a series of US appearances at last month’s Psycho Festival in Las Vegas; they played Rocklahoma on September 5 ahead of sets at Ohio’s Inkcarceration Festival and Virginia’s Blue Ridge Rock Festival this week.
