My favorite electro rockers Depeche Mode are currently in the studio working on their latest record. This will be the band's first album since 2005's brilliant Playing the Angel, the currently untitled disc is slated to come out in April.
Metal monsters Mastodon are also currently in the studio working on their latest disc. The band has been inspired by Brent Hinds head injury he endured at last years MTV VMA's in Las Vegas. The album is being produced by Brendan O'Brien (Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam) and for more info on the recording of Mastodon's latest check out Rolling Stone's exclusive inside look HERE
