THE HUNTER, MASTODON’S 6th full-length studio album made it’s earthly impact on Sep 27th, crash-landing directly into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. This marks the band’s highest chart debut ever. First week debut is quite impressive: #10 Billboard Top 20, #2 Hard Music Album, #5 Current Rock Album, #9 Current Digital Album, #9 Top Internet Album.
At the same time, “Curl Of The Burl” continues it’s ascent at radio as one of the greatest gainers of the week. Last night, Mastodon shook the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater in NYC performing the song live on The Late Show with David Letterman. Click here now to view.

“The Hunter” has already made its presence well known:
“‘The Hunter’ demonstrates how contemporary radio rock can still be made with imagination, precision and a majestic sense of force.” – Rolling Stone “Editor Picks – Our favorite Songs and Albums Right Now” (4 out of 5 Stars)
“Seemingly dozens of subtly different metal subgenres into a singular pursuit…One burly, beastly adrenaline spike.” — Entertainment Weekly (A-)
“With each successive outing the Georgia quartet stomps farther away from that specific label…Big ideas and shape-shifting epics result in the band’s most efficient and instantly appealing album.” – The Washington Post
Mastodon will take to the road in support of “The Hunter,” in approx 420 hours from now. Tickets are on sale!
