Good news for Mastodon fans: the band is hard at work creating tracks for their sixth studio effort.

The group delivered the announcement on their Facebook page , noting they’ve already amassed a wealth of material for their follow-up to 2011’s The Hunter . “Mastodon has been busy jamming everyday writing and arranging the next studio album,” writes the band. “We have quite a few songs and ideas that are taking some time to nail down what we think will make it to the next full-length.”

While a title and release date for the album have yet to be revealed, the band notes they hope to start recording it sometime in November.

The Hunter made a big splash on the charts when it was released, debuting at #10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It sold more than 39,000 in its first week, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
