If you loved Mastodon ’s last album, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy what the guys are cooking up for their next release. Frontman Troy Sanders says the new material on which they’re working will be similar to the kind of music they put out on 2011’s The Hunter .

“I guess it's going to be more of a continuation of where we left off with The Hunter ,” Sanders tells ARTISTDirect .  “Hopefully, it's just a collection of good Mastodon rock 'n' roll songs. That's where it's headed.”

Sanders adds the strong bond between the members of Mastodon hasn’t changed much over the years, which helps with the songwriting process. “We have a lot of good teamwork still,” he notes. “The same four dudes have been together for fourteen years. There's something to be said about that chemistry and the continuity of that. It's very unique.”
