Relapse Records recording artists MASTODON have announced their first tour of 2004 in support of their highly anticipated new album, "Leviathan". MASTODON will team up with FEAR FACTORY for a month-long trek beginning July 26 in Towson, MD. The tour is scheduled to conclude August 22 in Las Vegas, NV with additional dates pending.
