Mastodon Drummer Brann Dailor’s Bizarre New Band Arcadea to Release Debut Album in June

Mastodon drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor, Withered guitarist Raheem Amlani and Zruda guitarist/keyboardist have teamed up to form the bizarre synth rock band Arcedea. The peculiar band just announced their self-titled debut album, which features the sick cut “Gas Giant.”

Arcadea just announced their signing with Relapse Records, revealing their debut will hit our planet June 16. With Mastodon’s masterful Emperor of Sand ruling the metal sphere, becoming the highest-selling album in the U.S. in its first week, now’s the perfect time for Dailor to keep fans enthused with even more music.

Though Arcadea are drum and synth-driven, there’s plenty for rock and metal fans to dig. Dailor’s mean and ultra-technical drumming style shines through Arcadea’s futuristic and somewhat grimy electronics, with all three members of the band providing vocals for the project.

“The album envisions a future five billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets,” the band explains. “Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.”

Well, we’re sold! Pre-orders for the album will be announced in the coming weeks, but for now, enjoy the video for “Gas Giant” above!
