Sensational heavy metal, hard rock, and post metal bands, Mastodon, Eagles of Death Metal, and Russian Circles are bringing their signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom!
Eagles of Death Metal was formed in 1998 by Jesse Hughes (vocals, guitar) and Josh Homme (drums) and features a rotating line-up of other musicians that perform both on the band's studio albums and at live shows. The band’s current touring roster also has Dave Catching (guitar), Eden Galindo (guitar), Matt McJunkins (bass) and Jorma Vik (drums). Despite the name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. A friend of Josh’s wanted to introduce him to death metal, played a song by the Polish band Vader, and claimed it belonged to the death metal genre. Josh then referred to Vader as “The Eagles of Death Metal”, wondered what a hybrid of the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like, and the band was thus created. They’ve released 4 studio albums and 12 singles. Mastodon was formed in Atlanta in 2000 by drummer Brann Dailor, guitarist Bill Kelliher, bassist/singer Troy Sanders, and guitarist/singer Brent Hinds. The band has 7 studio albums to its name and has been nominated for 3 Grammy Awards (for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance and 2 for Best Metal Performance).
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to heavy metal, hard rock, and post metal!
