Yeah you read that right. Brand new stuff from MASTODON is set to drop tomorrow (Friday, July 31) in the form on the new track ‘Fallen Torches’. The song is taken from what appears to be a new rarities compilation titled “Medium Rarities”, which is scheduled to arrive on September 11.
A short “Fallen Torches” preview is available on the lightthetorch.mastodonrocks.com web site.
Now a lot of fans have speculated that “Fallen Torches” is the “heavy” new song MASTODON was recording back in December 2018 but wasn’t released. In January 2019, MASTODON guitarist Brent Hinds described the tune to Kerrang! magazine as “a fun listen,” while fellow axeman Bill Kelliher said that it was “a basher” and “brutal.” Drummer Brann Dailor concurred, telling the publication: “It’s as heavy as I’ve heard us in a while.”
Also when it comes to new MASTODON songs, the band also wrote and recorded a new song for inclusion in the upcoming “Bill & Ted Face The Music” movie.
“Bill & Ted Face The Music”, which reunites Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves in the title roles for the first time since 1991’s “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey”, is scheduled for a September 1 release.
