Brann Dailor Says “Some Circumstances” Got In The Way Of Mastodon Releasing Their New Song With Scott Kelly (Neurosis)

As previously reported, Mastodon were supposed to release a new song with Scott Kelly (Neurosis) before their European/UK tour, but that obviously didn’t happen. Now, during an interview with rocksverige.se, Brann Dailor revealed that “there were some circumstances that got in the way” of them releasing the track.

Dailor said the following:

“We wanted to release it right ahead of this tour, and we were trying really hard, and we had one foot in the studio and one foot on the airplane coming to Europe, and it just didn’t really come together as quickly as we wanted it to. It’s finished—the song is fully finished and it’s mastered and ready to rock—but we’ll just have to wait to release it.

It would’ve made sense to release it ahead of this tour because we have Scott Kelly [Neurosis] with us and he sings on some of it, so that would’ve been cool. We missed by a week or something and then we were stupid and went and blabbed about it like it was going to be a done deal. We thought it was going to be done sooner, but there were some circumstances that got in the way, unfortunately. But it’s still a kickass song and it’s pretty heavy.”

Dailor was also asked when the band will be releasing their new album and he responded with the following:

“I think next year would be smarter [than this year], on our part. We need to let people miss us, maybe.”

Mastodon Planning To Release New Song This Month

Mastodon are planning to release a new song in the very near future. The track will feature frequent collaborator Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and it is expected to surface ahead of the band’s European/UK tour with Kvelertak and Mutoid Man, which will kickoff next week. Bill Kelliher told Kerrang! that the song is “a basher” and that it’s “brutal.” Brann Dailor also added: “It’s as heavy as I’ve heard us in a while.”

Mastodon Appear To Be Working On New Music

It looks like Mastodon are working on some new music. Brann Dailor posted the following:

Mastodon Release “Ancient Kingdom” Beer

Mastodon have teamed up with Mikkeller once again to create their third collaborative beer. This one is named after their track “Ancient Kingdom” and it is available in select European stores now.

Mastodon’s Brann Dailor commented:

“Couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating once again with one of our favorite and internationally revered breweries Mikkeller. Ancient Kingdom is the perfect name for this beautifully brewed Czech Pilsner. We hope to swill a few with you on our European tour this winter, or on the beach this summer! Breach the walls of the ancient Kingdom and discover the bountiful riches hidden inside.”

Mikkeleler’s Mikkel Borg Bjergsø added:

“Our third collaboration with Mastodon is possibly going to be the best one so far. Not only did we agree on my favorite beer style at the moment, but the label and packaging came out amazing, and Brann and the guys named the beer after what I think is one of the top songs off of Emperor Of Sand. We always have a great time working with Mastodon, and we look forward to catching up with them early next year when they return to Europe.”

Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Reveals He Missed The 2018 Grammy Awards After Getting Injured In A Hit & Run

Mastodon won a Grammy for “Sultan’s Curse” back in January, but Brent Hinds was unable to attend the ceremony and he has a good excuse why. As it turns out, he was actually hospitalized after being involved in a hit and run while riding his motorcycle. Hinds confirmed the news on Instagram while talking about the new Ben Winston film “Hell Bound,” which he contributed music to. That movie is premiering at the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta, GA tonight (November 8). Hinds commented:

“Go see this movie..!!! I was lucky enough to live through playing a Lil bit a guitar on the sound track on January 23, 2018 and that’s why I couldn’t attend the Grammy’s (because I was involved in a hit and run on my motorcycle that ended me up in 🐎 pistola)..that i got absolutely NO shout out from my best friends/band mates💔 ..I know they love me and just be havin stupid nervousness,but still !
