[News] Mastodon & Dillinger Escape Plan Team Up For US Tour

Seriously, earlier in the year Deftones and Dillinger Escape Plan toured the states together and now Mastodon are taking Dillinger on the road with them too! US fans get prepared. Mastodon have just announced that they are to embark upon a rather large North American tour  in support of their upcoming album The Hunter, and are to take Dillinger and Red Fang along for opening support.. It'll sure get the crowd warmed up for the metal big hitters. 

Dates can be peeped after the jump but in other awesome Mastodon related news, the band will play "Curl of the Burl" for the masses via Letterman on October 5th.

Maybe this will be the perfect time for Brent Hinds and Ben Weinman to get some songs together for their project that we talked about back in June. We can hope, right?!
