Mastodon will be reissuing all of their Reprise Records titles in special colored vinyl editions throughout the rest of this year, beginning with 2006’s Blood Mountain, coming in solid yellow/transparent green on March 3rd. This will be followed by 2009’s Crack the Skye (baby blue vinyl, June 2nd), 2011’s The Hunter (red & white, August 4th) and their current album, Once More ‘Round the Sun (solid white/transparent green, Oct. 5th). A vinyl box-set of these titles, limited to only 500 copies, will then be released on Dec. 8th.
Additionally, Mastodon will release a limited-edition 12” vinyl picture disc for their non-album song “Atlanta,” previously only available digitally as part of the Adult Swim Singles Series, on Record Store Day, April 18th. The B-side will be an otherwise unreleased instrumental version of the song.
Mastodon will embark on another cross-country tour – a five-week series of concerts with Maryland-based co-headliners Clutch – beginning April 16th in St. Paul, Minnesota.
