Just got inside info about Mastodon (don't ask for source, there isn't any)

The band will split around the middle of June, official statement will surface at the end of the month.
Screencap this thread if you don't believe me, but I can assure you it'll happen. You heard it here first.

:hmm:

This is not enough.

If it's true, it's a little sad if they call it quits. They're by far the youngest of my top five bands, and they'd be the only one not together.

I don't doubt you in any way shape or form, but I'll be fucking pissed if this is a joke and not real. And I mean really fucking pissed. Lewis Black x50.

But I will say, if it does happen, at least album wise, they'll end at the top.

Only if Mastodon, Dream Theater, Opeth, or Devin Townsend announces they are done with music. And Dev did this to me already once. :bouville:

The guy that posted this said they will do the BlackDiamondSkye tour still.

Where did you get this from? Don't have to name names or anything you aren't comfortable with, but I just want to know where this came from.

The one question I'm a bit confused about. If this is all true and one of my favorite bands breaks up...Is the announcement coming at the end of May or June? I'm a bit confused by official Statement to be given at the end of the month thing.

I'm gonna be honest say I think it's untrue. However the possibility of it happening is immense. It's the same reason why I won't take a hobo yelling "MASTODON ARE BREAKING UP!" on the streets as true.

If it ends up being true though, I'm LA bound for the BlackDiamondSky tour.

NecroRob

I would purchase tickets ASAP as well...

MPF
05-29-2010, 11:54 PM
Again all in theory, if this is all true. I'm glad I was able to see Mastodon during the first run of the Crack The Skye tour wqith Kylesa and Intronaut in Minneapolis, which could very well be the last time the band will every play Hearts Alive.

I've seen them three times now I think. Every show I've seen was extraordinarily entertaining.

I would honestly have expected them to break up if Bill Kelleher's illness was going to stop him being a part of touring after this year.

I don't believe the guy, but like others said, there's so many things we've seen that could lead up to this.

This would be yet another piece of sad news to add to all the other stuff that's already happened in the last month.

I hope it's not true. Glad I have AIC tickets though.

Like I'm gonna believe a rumor with 4chan as the most credible source.

If it ends up true this will suck since they have been going strong for several years. However, at this point I will not be surprised especially with all the news about them lately.

As someone else said if it is true, at least they are going out on top.

I don't quite think you can say that they will never make an album of Leviathan's caliber again.

They already did :cool:

Again, I'll believe it when I see it anywhere other than 4chan.

I can say it with about 75% sureness, considering the direction they've headed in.

They can make an album just as good with a different sound. If you want the exact same album again you aren't going to get it.

Again, I'll believe it when I see it anywhere other than 4chan.

Me too.

Mastodon were much better at making music using their Leviathan sound than they are with the things they've been going for after that.

Blood Mountain/Crack the Skye were both definitely more of "my thing" in terms of style, but I also think they are definitely much less awesome.

Hey Buddy, I know it's your birthday but you just might need a kick in the ass for starting this rumor that Brann FINALLY put to rest:

We're not breaking up. I don't know what any of us would do, we love the music that we make together too much to end it now. It's the furthest thing from anyones mind. Bill needs to get better and he's doing that, the rest of us are resting up, living our lives and looking forward to working on new music and doing that Alice and chains Deftones tour.

Our artistic well has not run dry by any means, one of our brothers just needs to get well, that's all. Thank you all so much for being so understanding, especially those of you who were looking forward to seeing us in Europe next month.

As much as we want to do those shows, we feel like the best thing for us to do is to let Bill heal up and come back full strength, as it should be. I hope to see you all very soon.
Your Fan,
Brann.
