Mastodon have released a new song and video off their upcoming David Bottrill-produced album Hushed and Grim. Compared to the heavy, fired-up "Pushing The Tide," the new "Teardrinker" is more of a melodic alt-rock song, not very metal but definitely sounds like it could be a hit. (It also has a heroic guitar solo.) Listen and watch the Lorenzo Diego Carrera-directed video below.

The album comes out 10/29 via Reprise, and you can pre-order it on black double vinyl or pick up the Revolver collector's bundle (which includes the album on limited clear vinyl with exclusive artwork, a hand-numbered slipcase, an alternate Mastodon magazine cover of Revolver's fall issue, and a one-year subscription to Revolver).

Mastodon are also gearing up for a co-headlining tour with Opeth which features support from Zeal & Ardor, and that hits NYC on November 20 at Hammerstein Ballroom (tickets). All dates are listed below.
