Atlanta-based metal act Mastodon will take on a co-headlining run with Swedish rockers Opeth this spring to drum up support for their latest effort, "The Hunter."

First the Grammy-nominated outfit will complete a round of in-progress European dates, as well a handful of Australian appearances before joining up with Opeth for the North American kick-off April 4 in Portland, ME. The six-week outing crisscrosses the nation, stopping by clubs and theaters in 29 major markets before wrapping up May 12 in Atlanta.

Tickets for the trek, which will feature opening support by Ghost, go on sale beginning Feb. 3; details are posted at Mastodon's website.

Mastodon unveiled "The Hunter," the band's fifth studio set, last September. The effort, the group's first to be produced by Mike Elizondo (Avenged Sevenfold, Maroon 5), peaked at No. 10 on both The Billboard 200 and the Swedish Albums chart.

The album's lead single, "Curl of the Burl," has received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance. Winners will be announced at the Feb. 12 awards ceremony in Los Angeles, which will air live on the CBS network.

Fans can check out the video for the latest single, "Dry Bone Valley," now at the band's website. The video created by fine artist Tim Biskup.
