Excited about the upcoming tour, guitarist Bill Kelliher says: "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. GAME ON!!!" BK
