Three of the tracks, “North Side Star,” “Blue Walsh,” and “Cold Dark Place,” were recorded during the sessions for Mastodon’s 2014 album Once More ‘Round The Sun and were produced by Nick Raskulinecz. A fourth track, “Toe to Toes,” was recorded during the sessions for the band’s most recent album, 2016’s Emperor of Sand, and was produced by Brendan O’Brien. Those who pre-order Cold Dark Place will receive an instant download of the track “Toe to Toes,” on September 1.
Also, next month Mastodon will appear on the cover of the newly relaunched Revolver Magazine. The issue, which hits newsstands on September 12, will be available with four different covers, each featuring a member of Mastodon. When all four covers are placed together side by side, a single image of the full band, which is Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher, and Troy Sanders, is created.
As an added bonus, Revolver subscribers will receive an exclusive and very limited-edition 7” vinyl single with their paid order. The A-side is the version of “Toe To Toes” that appears on Cold Dark Place, and the B-side is a previously unreleased instrumental version of the track. The single will be housed in a picture sleeve featuring exclusive artwork by Richey Beckett, who also created the cover image of the Cold Dark Place EP.
