OHHHHH SNAP! It's goin down, my friends. Last week, Mastodon and Gojira announced they would be heading out on tour with Norwegian badasses Kvelertak. It was one of those news stories that got you soooooo pumped, but if you are from the Northwest like me, disappointed you like no other when you saw the tour was starting in Portland and skipping over Seattle entirely.
Luckily, today the bands added a few more dates to the tour itenerary and a stop at Showbox SoDo is mong them. I know where I will be on April 28th!
According to the official tour press release, Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher had this to say "Mastodon touring with Kvelertak and Gojira !!! Man, this is one tour dream come true! first of all Kvelertak and Gojira are 2 of my favorite bands at the moment, both putting out slamming records last year.
We toured with them on off shows from the Soundwaves festivals in Australia and I remember thinking what a great package/lineup this would be to bring to the states, and now it's happening.
