Mastodon has released a new song called “Teardrinker,” a track off the band’s upcoming album, Hushed and Grim.

Filled with openhearted lyrics and melodic guitar riffs, “Teardrinker” seems to reflect the motifs of grief that are spread throughout Hushed and Grim, which is dedicated to the memory of Mastodon’s late manger, Nick John. Its accompanying video, streaming now on YouTube, further explores those themes with mystical images of giant stone statues crying waterfalls.

“Teardrinker” is the second Hushed and Grim song to be released, following the single “Pushing the Tides.” The whole album is set to arrive October 29.

Mastodon will launch a co-headlining tour with Opeth in support of Hushed and Grim in November.
