Mastodon’s Brent Hinds previously talked about a new album called “Cold Dark Place“ and it was either supposed to be a solo album of his or an add on to make “Emperor Of Sand” a double album. Obviously neither of those happened, but now it appears it will be released as a separate Mastodon album. Hinds shared the apparent cover art in the below Instagram post, and an Amazon listing said it would arrive on September 22.
In June 2016 Hinds told Guitar World the flowing about “Cold Dark Place”:
“One is an album I wrote myself, and recorded with Brann and Troy during the ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun‘ sessions. My part is called ‘Cold Dark Place‘, and it has to do with a nasty breakup that I went through. I wrote some pretty dark, beautiful, spooky, funky, ethereal, melancholy music, which also sounds like the Bee Gees a little bit. [laughs]”
