In an interview with Spin, progressive metal band Mastodon issued details on their upcoming sixth studio album, which they hope to release this summer. They also dropped a little nugget that suggests there may very well be an EP with bonus tracks that comes out in Winter!

Drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor states, “It’s gonna be a summer release, so I feel like it needs to be amped. I don’t feel like it needs to be slow, and doom and gloom. That’s a winter album. We were actually talking about that earlier, like, ‘Why don’t we take some of the stuff that’s really moody and slow and do, like, a winter EP?’

He continues, stating, “We have a few really kickass rock’n’roll songs on here. We have the metal, the heavy-heavy. We have the totally whacked-out and bizarre. And then we have the super-hooky, big-chorus stuff that’s still bizarre and still Mastodon — but it’s super catchy. It’s wild, all over the place. There’s a lot of variety.
