GTO and MASTODON guitarist, Brent Hinds, suffered a severe break of his leg a few days ago in his hometown of Atlanta, GA while starting his motorcycle. This injury will require surgery and take a month for Hinds to walk again. It will also prevent Hinds from hitting the road with his GTO brethren – William DuVall (Alice In Chains), Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Thomas Pridgen (The Mars Volta) and Pete Griffin (Dethklok / Zappa Plays Zappa) - a tour that was to start on Tuesday, November 29th in Boston, MA.
Rather than put on a fraction of the show they could – the band has chosen to postpone the dates until such time as Hinds is healed and their schedules can be aligned again.

After lead singer Adam Burnett's father suffered a fatal accident and suddenly passed away during the first week of tracking their debut album Black Dream, Adam, Carlos, Dave & Neko plunged into their art with urgency and a newfound lust for life, eventually emerging with a euphoric sound that defines their new releases on Breakup Records. Channeling a signature brand of dark indie pop ala early Killers, Phoenix, and White Lies has propelled the band forward to recent showcases at SXSW, CMJ and beyond.
