Although that damned groundhog came out of his hole to see his shadow, a sign of six more weeks of winter weather, the feeling of spring is already starting to spread. That feeling has materialized in the form of a headlining Mastodon tour, with support from Between the Buried and Me, Baroness, and Valient Thorr.
Great lineup, although Between The Buried And Me seem like the odd men out, considering they are largely without the sludgy type of sound the rest of the lineup carries, but shit. This is still a great lineup.
From The PRP:
Speaking of the tour Mastodon said that the shows will “bring the band to the fans in American cities that have yet to experience the CRACK THE SKYE live event.” In related news, the group will be offering a limited tour only color vinyl edition of their latest album “Crack The Skye” at the aforementioned tour.
