Soundgarden, Municipal Waste, Etc. Members To Guest On New Mastodon Album “Hushed And Grim”

It looks like Mastodon’s new album, “Hushed And Grim” (out October 29), will feature a number of special guests. During an interview with Kerrang!, the group confirmed that Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, Municipal Waste’s Dave Witte, Marcus King, João Nogueira, etc. will appear on the effort.

Drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor said the following about the new record, which was influenced by the death of the band’s manager Nick John:

“‘Hushed And Grim‘ is a mood. It’s about grief, about guilt, about all those fun feelings. It’s awful seeing your friend suffer like that and knowing there’s nothing that you can do. If you know, you know…”

Bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders added:

“It’s about taking the factual, brutal darkness of a life’s moment, then really trying to navigate through and beyond it. Writing and recording this record was like grief counselling for me: started out feeling horrific, came out feeling fantastic. Even if we wanted to write a happier record, we couldn’t. Our band doesn’t work that way. We can’t just shovel all of the darkness aside and say that everything was great.”

On another note, guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds mentioned that the group also recorded some “proggy punk-rock songs” and “long Sabbathy-sounding shit” during the “Hushed And Grim” sessions. The extra material might be used for another future release.

Being that we can’t get over there until 2022, we’re going to make sure that every show will be an eventful one. We won’t just be playing four decades of songs to celebrate our ongoing 40th anniversary – hey, we’ll be giving YOU some history! – but we just might have some brand new ones for you as well. Can’t wait to see all your happy, smiling faces!!!”
