Mastodon gojira kvelerak tour

Mastodon have announced the second leg of their U.S. headlining tour in support of their excellent new album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, which the Heavy Blog Staff decided was one of the best albums of the year so far. The tour will once again feature the mighty Gojira and the fun-as-hell Kvelertak as openers. The tour kicks off in mid-October on Boise, ID and will finish up in Atlanta, GA in early November.

I had the opportunity to catch this tour back in May when it rolled through Denver, and it was worth every penny. Kvelertak whetted the crowd’s appetite with their blackened punk n’ roll jams, Gojira absolutely leveled and destroyed everything in the vicinity, and Mastodon provided an audio history of how they became one of the biggest metal bands in the world, playing cuts off of each of their albums, including their aforementioned new one. If you have a chance to attend this tour, I highly recommend you do so.
