Mastodon Bill Kelliher by Anne-Erickson

Guitarist Bill Kelliher has confirmed in an interview with Soundwave TV that the band are almost ready to unveil their latest album, and that we should expect even more than 2011′s The Hunter.

“I did a lot of writing on this one, and we worked really hard on keeping it simple,” explains Kelliher. “There is some crazy, math-y stuff going on, but there’s a lot of really strong choruses and verses. Real catchy stuff that gets in your brain so you can hum and sing along. It’s cool! I really like it!”

Kelliher also confirms that regular Mastodon collaborator Scott Kelly of Neurosis will be making another appearance this time around. “We just got a track back… It sounds tough as nails. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
