The track “Fallen Torches” will be available Friday July 31st

Atlanta’s Mastodon are brilliantly teasing a new track, “Fallen Torches” by encouraging fans to sign up for their newsletter. Once signed up, a snippet of audio from track becomes available and thus far, the song will cdrtinaly satiate fans’ appetite for new tunes.

There is speculation that this is the track initially discussed with Kerrang! back in January of 2019 that features Scott Kelly of Neurosis. Mastodon’s Brann Dailor summed up the direction of the track by saying, “It’s as heavy as I have heard us in a while.”

In addition to the audio reveal, fans also get their first glimpse of what is possibly the cover art for the band’s compilation record, Medium Rarities. Though nothing has been confirmed, the record is said to be slated for a September 11th release.
