With a new album due later his month, Mastodon have revealed plans for a fall tour that will bring them to Massachusetts in November. The hard rockers will play Boston’s House of Blues on Monday, November 21. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $25 and $40. The Dillinger Escape Plan and Red Fang will also perform.

Mastodon will be touring in support of their highly anticipated new album, The Hunter, which will be released on September 27. The band’s fifth studio effort and first since 2009’s Crack the Skye, was recorded in their hometown of Atlanta with producer Mike Elizondo (Fiona Apple, Avenged Sevenfold)

The Hunter will be released in several configurations that feature an exciting interactive 3D experience known as “Augmented Reality”. The technology, created by Los Angeles-based Company Total Immersion, combines virtual and real worlds to create a 3D one-of-a-kind interactive experience that users can control. Just by using a camera on a computer, their own face and the cover art on The Hunter, the user can turn themselves into The Hunter sculpture that is pictured on the cover.

In other news, Mastodon have also announced that they will perform their new single, “Curl of the Burl” on CBS’ The Late Show With David Letterman on October 5.
