Atlanta heavy rock icons MASTODON have announced their first live late-night televised appearance in support of their new album, "Emperor Of Sand", which will be released on March 31 via Reprise Records. The band will perform on the outdoor stage at ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on April 3, and the following day, April 4, will play a rare, intimate show at Amoeba Music in Hollywood at 5 p.m.
Beginning on Friday, March 31, fans who purchase "Emperor Of Sand" at Amoeba Music in Hollywood will receive admission to the in-store and a limited-edition "Mastodon Live At Amoeba" lithograph commemorating the show. Admission is limited to in-store orders only and two LP/CD + ticket per person. Admittance lines for the in-store will form on Ivar Avenue beginning at 2 p.m. on April 4 and is limited to first purchasers and the store's capacity.
The album can be pre-ordered in various formats at this location.
The follow-up to 2014's "Once More 'Round The Sun", "Emperor Of Sand" was recorded at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, just outside MASTODON's hometown of Atlanta, with producer Brendan O'Brien (PEARL JAM, NEIL YOUNG, AC/DC, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE), who first worked with MASTODON on their seminal 2009 album "Crack The Skye".
MASTODON will release the official music video for the song "Show Yourself" later today (Thursday, March 16).
MASTODON kicks off a spring U.S. headline tour in support of "Emperor Of Sand" on April 14 in Missoula, Montana, with support from EAGLES OF DEATH METAL and RUSSIAN CIRCLES. The tour also includes stops at several festivals, including the Carolina Rebellion on May 5.
