Mastodon’s Brent Hinds says he’ll release a solo album titled Cold Dark Place for Record Store Day 2017
Brent Hinds says he plans on releasing an album of solo material on Record Store Day 2017.
The vocalist and guitarist is currently gearing up for the launch of Mastodon’s seventh album Emperor Of Sand, which is due for release on March 31, via Reprise Records.
He reveals he’s been sitting on “too many albums” and that after discovering the material was better than he first thought, he’s decided to release some of it.
Hinds tells Loudwire: “I have way too many albums sitting around so I’m deciding to put some of them out because I’ve been marinating some of them for years thinking, ‘I don’t know if I even like this – I know I can do better.’
“Then a friend of mine wanted to listen to it and I was like, ‘I wrote this? This is amazing. We should put this out.’ So that’s what’s going to happen in on Record Store Day. We’re putting out an album that I wrote entirely called Cold Dark Place.”
Mastodon will head out on the road from April in support of Emperor Of Sand.
