Troy Sanders On New MASTODON Material: "We're creating delicious sandwiches every day at band practice"

In a recent interview with, MASTODON front man, Troy Sanders, talked about the band's upcoming new album, stating:

"We're doing this for ourselves and by ourselves. We're creating delicious sandwiches every day at band practice. [laughs]

"Yesterday Chef Brent brought down some tasty turkey, and it was delicious. Brann decides what kind of bread is going to sandwich it. I'm just trying to create an intriguing mayonnaise or some kind of glue to hold this sandwich together. Who knows that's going to happen today? We just don't know.

"Per usual, in the writing process, I'm completely absorbed in MASTODON material. I'm a late bloomer, and it takes me a while to grasp a lot of things in life, and MASTODON material is one of them. I'll listen to a demo of a particular song over and over until I can possibly find an interesting vocal melody line or lyrics that'll fit a certain part. I immerse myself one-hundred percent in our riff writing. I'm also enjoying my home time as we're about to leave for the entire summer. I'm trying to find a healthy balance of home and tour life."

When asked what's next for MASTODON, Sanders said: "We've got the skeletons of enough songs for an entire album. We're thinking of vocal ideas and putting together as much rough demos as we can before we go overseas so we can listen to everything over the summer. Then, when we return from the tour, we'll know what we want to keep, delete, and add."
