Mastodon announce new album ‘Hushed and Grim’ and share new song

After teasing its artwork on social media last week, Mastodon have officially announced their eighth studio album, Hushed and Grim, will be released on October 29.  The 15-track album, produced by David Bottrill, was partially inspired by the death of longtime manager and friend of the band Nick John. John passed away in 2018 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Hushed and Grim is available to preorder now.  Along with the album announcement, Mastodon also shared Hushed and Grim’s lead single “Pushing the Tides,” along with a video directed by Lorenzo Diego Carrera. You take a look at the video – here.
