Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor talks about the importance of emotion on the new album.
"Doing ‘Crack the Skye’ and then doing ‘The Hunter’, what we discovered about ourselves and our music is that it’s better if we go deeper and more personal with the content and the subject matter than just keeping it superficial".
Dailor explained further, "So we’ve made extra close attention to make sure that the songs that we are doing and the lyrics we are writing come from this certain emotional well that’s inside all of us and never to do anything superficial. Okie-dokie?"
Mastodon are planning to be in the studio next month and are aiming to release the new album in 2014, which Dailor says "won’t be what you expect".
