Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON have released the official Lorenzo Diego Carrera-directed music video for their new song “Teardrinker”. The track is taken from MASTODON‘s upcoming album, “Hushed And Grim”, which is due on October 29. The follow-up to 2017’s “Emperor Of Sand” was recorded at West End Sound, which is located inside of Ember City, the rehearsal facility that members of MASTODON manage in Atlanta. Helming the effort was Grammy-winning producer/mixer/engineer David Bottrill, who has previously worked with MUSE, DREAM THEATER and TOOL, among many others.

The “Hushed And Grim” artwork was created by longtime MASTODON collaborator Paul Romano, who also designed the sleeves for “Crack The Skye”, “Blood Mountain”, “Leviathan” and more. Pre-order the album HERE.

“Hushed And Grim” Album Artwork

MASTODON drummer Brann Dailor stated about the “Hushed And Grim” cover: “Essentially, to be brief, [the tree]is an afterlife mythology that when you pass away, your spirit goes into the heart of a tree and then experiences all the pillars of your in successions of the seasons that the tree experiences. That is the way you’re able to say goodbye to the natural world and move on to the next dimension. You can see a green man in the center of the tree — the heart of the tree — and that is our good friend and manager Nick John, who passed away, unfortunately, a couple of years ago [after a battle with pancreatic cancer]. [Nick] has a lot to do with the inspiration of the album, ‘Hushed And Grim’.”
