The heavy metal bangers in Atlanta-based Mastodon have released a video via their socials, and it’s far from your typical studio update.
The video portrays a member of Mastodon with his voice distorted, blurred face, and blacked out head providing puzzling information. “I can’t talk about it. We’re recording music. Different kinds of music. World music. Uh, heavy metal. R&B. Celtic music. Music to dance to. Music to sit down to. Music to do yoga. Music to do all different kinds of, um, exercises too. Things like that.” When asked if he’s the drummer, the man answers, “No, but we do drum tracks for music – especially yoga music – and it might be done.” Confirmed from a source close to the band, the man seen in the video is, in fact, Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor.
Mastodon is scheduled to release a new album sometime this year. No official date has been set.
Slated to hit the road this spring, Mastodon will be touring with such acts as Eagles Of Death Metal and Russian Circles. For ticket information, click here.
