Starting today, Tuesday, June 9, Mastodon fans will finally have the opportunity to watch the new mini-epic video for “Oblivion” from their new album, Crack the Skye. The clip, directed by the famed Roboshobo, is viewable on MySpace. Go to myspace.com/mastodon.
Mastodon—the subject of Guitar Player's August 2009 cover story—formed in 1999 in Atlanta and has basically lived on the road ever since, touring with such acts as Iron Maiden and Slayer. The artwork used in this package is from the band’s highly successful third album, Blood Mountain, which was released in 2006 and includes the band’s hit single, “Colony of Birchmen.” Rare is the band that achieves such critical acclaim coupled with the level of fan support that Mastodon have. Their “blue collar” touring ethic has earned them continuous accolades from fans who have grown accustomed to their accessibility, approachability, and dedication as a working man’s band.
This fall, Vans salutes Mastodon with four shoe styles including a Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On featuring Blood Mountain cover art, as well as a black and gray "Blade Catcher" Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On. These are guaranteed to sell fast, so do not hesitate to seek them out. Check out vans.com for more info. Lastly, Crack the Skye is now available on a limited-edition color vinyl pressing. The beautiful gold and red 12” disc is moving fast so head immediately to mastodonrocks.com and cracktheskye.com to avoid disappointment. More Mastodon limited-edition artifacts, not available anywhere else, will be announced soon.
