Mastodon let their fans know that they’ve recently stepped into the studio to write and record their new album by uploading a series of photos in the album ‘New Album Recording April 2011’. The above photo of the legendary Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Probot, Tenacious D, Them Crooked Vultures, etc if you somehow forgot his legacy) was tucked neatly at the end, leading rock fans everywhere to salivate in awe at the possibility of Dave contributing to the new album. Dave is certainly fit for Mastodon’s sound, just as Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Them Crooked Vultures, etc) fit in perfectly in “Colony of Birchmen” from their album Blood Mountain. Hopefully this ends up being more than friendly goofing off and we see a recorded collab between Dave and Mastodon; it’s just undeniably sweet and should be excellent!
Expect to hear more about this soon enough. We’ll have the record later this year!
