After teasing its artwork on social media last week, Mastodon have officially announced their eighth studio album, Hushed and Grim, will be released on October 29.  The 15-track album, produced by David Bottrill, was partially inspired by the death of longtime manager and friend of the band Nick John. John passed away in 2018 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Hushed and Grim is available to preorder now.  Along with the album announcement, Mastodon also shared Hushed and Grim’s lead single “Pushing the Tides,” along with a video directed by Lorenzo Diego Carrera. You take a look at the video – here.
