Mastodon and Primus announce 2018 tour, including three New England dates

 
 

One of the more notable things to jump off the GRAMMYs winner’s list last night was Mastodon taking home Best Metal Performance for “Sultan’s Curse,” a track off their 2017 album Emperor Of Sand.

Without missing a beat, the metal band has unveiled their spring and summer plans, setting out on a 43-date tour with Primus that hits a few spots around New England just as the weather improves.

In the first-half of the tour, Mastodon and Primus play Bold Point Park in Providence on May 26, a TBA venue in Portland on May 27, and then The Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on May 29. According to Camp Primus, pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow (January 30) with a password of Goblins, and the general onsale opens Friday (February 2).

Primus are touring behind their ninth studio album The Desaturating Seven, which dropped in September. Peep all the dates after digesting Mastodon’s GRAMMY-winning effort below.
