West End Motel, the side project of Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds, has just announced a 3-week tour in support of their sophomore release Only Time Can Tell. The 8-song set is the anticipated follow-up to Hinds’ acclaimed 2011 debut Don’t Shiver, You’re A Winner.

Although Hinds found success with Mastadon, West End Motel actually pre-dates Mastadon, having formed in 1993 in Atlanta, where Hinds first met longtime friend Tom Cheshire. “I grew up listening to Chet Atkins play guitar, and I grew up listening to Brian Setzer play guitar,” explains Hinds. “Jimmy Bryant, Speedy West, all these country-chicken-pickin’-flying-’round-the-guitar-neck guitar players. I got really inspired by it. I’m from way down in the country. It was pretty common to have the interests I had when I was that age.”

Only Time Can Tell is slated for release on October 30, 2012.

Only Time Can Tell Track Listing:

1. Burn It Down
2. El Myr
3. Witch Is Dead
4. If I Only Had Tomorrow (Second Chances)
5. Forgiveness
6. Only Time Can Tell
7. Valentine
8. Bite
