Drummer Brann Dailor of Mastodon had the following to say to MTV regarding the new album:
Brann Dailor Speaks About New Album"It's hard to be inside something and talk to people about it. And it's kind of a cliché that the people in the band think that what they're working on at the moment is the best stuff they've ever done. But I guess that's the way that we feel. It's just more intense, more — I mean I like everything we've ever done. But at the moment, I'm really digging on this stuff. It's hard for me to put into words what's different about it. It's just better. I hope we can start a prog revolution, because the timing's right. You've got a Tool record that's coming out, an Isis...

Aloha, the most critically-acclaimed band in Polyvinyl's history, returns April 11th with Some Echoes, their fourth full-length and finest moment to date. Aloha loves a little bit of everything (60s orchestral pop, prog rock, 20th century composers, iconic songwriters), but they don't dabble here and there, they meld it all to make their own noise, a singular and unmistakable one. This is one album not to be missed. Hear for yourself what everyone has been raving about, you will not be disappointed.

Also, I just had the oppurtunity to hear a couple more demos and my anticipation for this just keeps growing and growing -- this band has seriously outdone themselves. Expect big, beautiful things from these guys! Maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to hear some new music very soon right here at Absolutepunk.net!
