Mastodon share the second taste of their forthcoming new album; listen below

Mastodon have shared a second track from their forthcoming new album, and you can check it out above.

The track is called 'Show Yourself' and follows on from 'Sultan's Curse', the first single to be unveiled from the album last month. Both tracks will feature on the band's upcoming seventh studio album, entitled Emperor Of Sand, which is due out via Reprise Records on March 31.

The new album marks their first since 2014's Once More 'Round The Sun. "There is a tie, a concept that goes between them," says drummer Brann Dailor of the album's tracks. "The last couple of years have been not... there’s been some illness within the bands' family, there’s been a bunch of cancer.

"So the whole album is sort of all about cancer basically. Well, not literally. It’s a big story that sort of roped to go along with it. It takes place in the desert."
