West End Motel, the side project of awesomely face-tattooed Mastodon vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds, has announced it will release its sophomore LP, Only Time Can Tell, on October 30th via Warner Bros. The eight-track effort’s lead-off song is the metal-titled, yet surprisingly funky saxophone jam “Burn It Down”, which Hinds described as being created when the group “were being kinda silly and had the cheesy Casio island beat on.” Stream it now at Rolling Stone.
The six-piece bar band released their debut LP, Don’t Shiver You’re A Winner, last year as a double-LP with Hinds’ other-other band, the surf-a-billy Fiend Without A Face. West End’s Facebook page mentions meeting under a bridge, “panhandling and drinking cough syrup.”
Only Time Can Tell Tracklist:
01. Burn It Down
02. El Myr
03. Witch Is Dead
04. If I Only Had Tomorrow (Second Chances)
