Mastodon & Priestess Tour

"Mastodon has unveiled a three-week North American tour in support of its latest Reprise album, Blood Mountain. The metal-leaning quartet will be joined by Priestess and Converge on the trek, which begins Jan. 26 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and wraps Feb. 18 in Norfolk, Va.

"'[Touring], I feel, is what got us signed,' drummer Brann Dailor told in a recent interview. 'But we're really aggressive about it and sometimes it can get to us. Sometimes I sink into a depression on tour because it's no place to be when big stuff happens, like if your dog dies or something. You're in your tour bubble. So it'd be nice to keep finding way to adjust to it.'" [Billboard]
